ROSEVILLE, Calif., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Iskra Sistemi, a developer and provider of process automation, communications and security products announced a new product - the SparkLight ADM16 Next Generation SDH Add/Drop Multiplexer.  

The SparkLight ADM-16 is a compact, high-density STM-16/4/1 next-generation access multiplexer which supports high-speed communications services. By providing a wide variety of interfaces on one common platform, Iskra's SparkLight ADM16 family of products allows service providers to build an effective, flexible, user-friendly communications network. Extremely powerful EoS tools enable a smooth migration from TDM to packet services. VCAT is used to provide flexible bandwidth assignment from 2Mbps to 1000Mbps. LCAS allows for reliable bandwidth-efficient transport of many different packet services. An OTU2 blade allows for OTU2 and STM-64 line interfaces, utilizing P-OTN (Packet Optical Transport Network) technology.

Iskra selected Arrive Technologies' AT4848 System-on-a-Chip as a key component in its new SparkLight ADM16 family of products. Arrive Technologies' AT4848 is a highly integrated and scalable OC-48/STM-16, OC-12/STM-4 or OC-3/STM-1 Multiservice Add/Drop Multiplexer (ADM) on a chip. "Arrive is proud and excited to partner with Iskra Sistemi in their development efforts of advanced networking products," said Giovanni Cintorrino, Director of Worldwide Sales at Arrive Technologies.

Iskra selected Arrive's AT4848 because of its scalability and powerful feature set, including integrated cross-connects supporting DS0, VT/TU and STS/VC level switching, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, storage and video protocols, SONET/SDH and high density DS1/E1s and DS3/E3s, support of Frame and Transparent GFP mapping, SONET/SDH HI/LO and PDH virtual concatenation (VCAT) and LCAS with 128 groups. The AT4848 also provides VLAN/MPLS applications with on-chip L2 Aggregation & Management.
