MRV Optimizes High-Density OptiDriver™ Portfolio for Smaller 10G and 100G Environments

Two new chassis empower smaller data centers, carriers and cloud      providers with the right mix of capacity and intelligence, making it      easier to deploy and manage advanced optical services

CHATSWORTH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 23, 2014--      MRV Communications™, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRVC) (“MRV®”), a leading      provider of innovative packet and optical solutions, announced today      it has expanded the intelligent OptiDriver™      optical transport portfolio by unveiling new 12 and 16 slot chassis.      The new OptiDriver™ chassis are optimized for smaller data center      interconnects, Tier 3 service providers, cable operators, enterprises      and others who have limited space for network equipment and may not need      the full capacity provided by the OptiDriver™ 48 slot chassis. The new      OptiDriver™ solutions address the unique needs of smaller 10G and 100G      networking environments with the right balance of bandwidth and      integrated management features to streamline the delivery of advanced      services like cloud connectivity and content delivery. Support for these      services allows smaller network operators to expand their service      portfolios and increase their competitiveness in the marketplace.

The smaller OptiDriver™ chassis feature the advanced capabilities      offered by all solutions within the OptiDriver™ portfolio. Customers can      now eliminate unused capacity and space while accessing a feature-rich      optical transport platform that offers the industry’s most compact 10G      transport and the lowest power consumption per 10G/100G service. The      OptiDriver™ 16 slot chassis supports a single row of single-height cards      optimized for high-density 10G applications in remote locations. The      OptiDriver™ 12 slot chassis features a patent-pending design that holds      three rows of flexible dual-height cards capable of supporting emerging      technologies like 100G and ROADM. Additionally, the OptiDriver™ 12 slot      chassis may be utilized for redundant management hardware in locations      that require enhanced management reliability. The entire OptiDriver™      portfolio is integrated with MRV’s Pro-Vision® service delivery      platform. Built-in processing for current and emerging intelligent      control plane technologies like GMPLS and Software-Defined Networking      (SDN) enables quick integration into new and existing networks.

“The OptiDriver™ 12 and 16 slot chassis complement our 48 slot chassis,      while untying the traditional link between capacity and features. MRV      continues to evolve its innovative solutions portfolio, and the new      chassis enable us to offer optimized solutions and configurations to      closely match the unique needs of network operators, regardless of size,      location or environment,” said John Golub, vice president of global      product line management for MRV Communications. “High-density,      power-efficient optical transport solutions are no longer reserved for      the largest operators; small and mid-sized users can now streamline      support for new bandwidth-rich, revenue-generating services, too.”
