CrossFiber Partners with Vello Systems for Photonic Cross-Connects for Data Center Networking

March 10, 2014

Partnership Offers 10 Nanosecond-Latency Optical Circuit Switching at Low CapEx to Next-Generation Data Centers and Cloud Service Providers with Vello Systems Software

San Diego, CA -- CrossFiber Inc., announced that it joined forces with Vello Systems and other optical components and systems vendors to create an open-standards-based IT software and optical hardware ecosystem for data centers and Cloud environments.

CrossFiber photonic switching systems, offered along with Vello’s routing and virtual cross-connect software, replace proprietary edge data center router functions with ultra-low latency and low CapEx solutions in cloud provisioning applications such as those adopted recently by Pacnet or in other data center applications where network resources need to be matched dynamically with business priorities.

CrossFiber is the photonic cross-connect charter member in the Open Source Optical (OSO) initiative led by Vello Systems. The OSO members will define and promote OpenFlow-based hybrid packet and optical networking solutions to next-generation data centers and Cloud service providers.

“As photonics makes substantial inroads into next-generation data center architectures, CrossFiber photonic switches will work seamlessly with SDN software stacks such as those offered by Vello Systems,” said Hus Tigli, President & CEO of CrossFiber. “We are excited to partner with Vello and be a part of the OSO forum.”

“What CrossFiber is doing with OSO is nothing short of extending the utility and application of optical solutions into the heart of the data center and in a way that is fully integrated with next-gen standards-based Ethernet switching,” said Karl May, CEO, Vello Systems.“Now data center providers and enterprises alike can offer easy-to-deploy, lower latency and higher reliability services that consume a fraction of the power and the CapEx of legacy solutions.And our growing partnership with CrossFiber has meant that we now have the ability to port our VellOSTM Connectivity Exchange precision application networking software across multiple types of optical platforms.”
