HAYWARD, Calif., Dec. 9 -- Glimmerglass, the leading supplier of intelligent optical switching systems, today announced availability of SNMP trap reporting in all of its photonic switching products. With this announcement, Glimmerglass enables carriers and operators to integrate photonic cross connects with their SNMP-based network management systems.
Operators with SNMP network management systems will now be able to correlate physical-layer optical events from Glimmerglass switches with existing network traps. Improved problem isolation and reduced Mean-Time-To-Repair, intrinsic properties of photonic switch deployments in networks, are now facilitated through SNMP trap reporting in addition to reporting via Glimmerglass' TL1 interface.
In addition to support for individual switches, SNMP functionality has been extended to the Glimmerglass Console multiswitch manager. Glimmerglass Console now provides SNMP 'Listen and Forward' functionality. SNMP 'Listen and Forward' allows SNMP traps from a large number of photonic switches to be routed through the Glimmerglass Console to the desired SNMP Managers.
"As more of our customers install large networks of Glimmerglass Intelligent Optical Switches, it is vitally important to provide tools that facilitate their integration into existing network management systems. This addition of SNMP trap reporting is another example of Glimmerglass leadership," said CEO Bob Lundy.
The SNMP agent feature will be available for new or upgrade orders in Q1 2009.
Glimmerglass provides powerful, flexible dynamic wavelength management solutions. Customers deploy Glimmerglass Intelligent Optical Switches to create, monitor and protect wavelengths in networks supporting land-based and undersea telecommunications systems, datacenters, peering exchanges, government networks, and video networks. Glimmerglass switches provide customers with the industry's lowest-loss, low-profile, non-blocking and fully transparent switching, scalable from 24 to 192 ports.
