CALIENT Teams with Signal Solutions to Bring Optical Circuit Switching To Scandinavia and Eastern Europe

CALIENT Technologies, Inc., the global leader for Optical Circuit Switching technology, today announced a reseller partnership with Signal Solutions Nordic Oy of Espoo, Finland. The company will resell CALIENT’s S320 Optical Circuit Switch to carriers and enterprises throughout Finland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Lithuania and Latvia.

Signal Solutions was founded in 2013 as a specialist reseller of fiber-optic, RF and microwave solutions. The company’s management has a combined 40 years building complex, global systems. The company plans to sell the S320 into enterprise data center and mobile and fixed telecom networks.

CALIENT’s S320 is used to create a network fabric with total throughput of more than 32 terabits per second. The optical circuit switch allows any-to-any network connections with almost no latency and can be reconfigured on demand through a software-defined network (SDN) controller. Each switch port is transparent to bit rate and can support data speeds up to 100 Gbps and beyond. The S320 is used in cloud data centers, co-location and multi-tenant facilities, other emerging datacenter applications and is a powerful component for next-generation SDN data centers.

“There is a great deal of innovative technology coming from the countries that are served by Signal Solutions, which leads to increased network traffic and that builds demand for a high-bandwidth, low latency networking system like the S320,” said Erik Leonard, CALIENT’s Vice President of Sales for the Service Provider and Digital Entertainment segments. “We wanted an experienced team to help drive our sales efforts throughout the region and we’re very excited for the opportunity to work with Signal Solutions.”

“We’re noting a surge of interest in Optical Circuit Switching technology from our customers as optical interfaces scale to 40Gbps, 100Gbps and even beyond,” said Tony Aaltonen, CEO of Signal Solutions. “We’re very enthusiastic about our new business relationship with CALIENT because it allows us to support these customer demands with a very high port density solution that is also field proven.”

Data centers and service providers use optical circuit switches in their networks to provide very low latency, high-speed transport networks for persistent traffic flows. CALIENT has had several successful deployments of the S320 into cloud datacenter and service provider networks where its small size, ultra-low power consumption, and unlimited scalability are enabling new breakthroughs in reducing network costs and improving efficiency.
