FiberZone Adds Fiber Automation to CERN Network
FiberZone’s Award-Winning Automated Fiber Management (AFM) Solution to Streamline CERN’s testing and deployment processes
Washington D.C. — September 20, 2011 — FiberZone Networks, the leading provider of Automated Fiber Management (AFM) solutions for data centers and networks, announced today a major customer win providing fiber automation for CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. CERN, pioneer of many global scientific breakthroughs and operator of the Large Hadron Collider, will use FiberZone’s AFM to test and certify new equipment before deployment to CERN facilities.
“FiberZone made a concerted effort to design a capable solution to switch connections efficiently across different equipment of various port speeds and protocol types,” said Edoardo Martelli, CERN Communication Systems Expert.
“We are proud to deploy our Automated Fiber Management solution at CERN ,” said Yosi Lahad, CEO of FiberZone Networks, “The CERN implementation is a significant example of how an organization can ‘future proof’ their fiber switch capabilities and achieve cost-saving scalability.”
Eric Hanselman, Director of the networking practice at The 451 Group, commented "Automation offers significant cost savings and increases service flexibility and FiberZone's AFM combines interconnect automation and wavelength independence to create a unique opportunity to take advantage of these benefits."
FiberZone Networks delivers remote fiber connectivity solutions to datacenters and networks with its Automatic Fiber Management (AFM) product line, delivering reliability, flexibility, fault tolerance and management to the fiber infrastructure. FiberZone's AFM significantly increases network reliability and availability, reduces operating costs, minimizes network faults and human errors, and prevents revenue losses & SLA (Service Level Agreement) penalties. FiberZone's AFM product line utilizes patent-pending Latched Optical Coupling (LOCTM) technology that delivers reliable passive connectivity in a remotely-managed automated fiber management system. FiberZone's AFM product line has been deployed by leading datacenter and network operators in the U.S., Asia, and Europe.
