Aurora/Alpha Solution Monitors and Manages Optical Networks

  • Aurora Networks
ATLANTA – Aurora Networks, a provider of optical access solutions for cable operators, announced it has combined capabilities with Alpha Technologies, a power solutions leader, to produce a solution to efficiently monitor and manage the power source in all-optical portions of the network. The new solution integrates the monitoring of Alpha’s power supply with Aurora Networks’ node and Opti-Trace element management system (EMS), the companies provide the first solution to efficiently monitor and manage the power source in all-optical portions of the network.

Aurora Networks’ VHub is the most widely deployed virtual hub in the industry, deployed in all-optical environments. VHub eliminates the real estate costs of a typical hub, reduces powering expenses, lowers capital expenses and speeds new revenue generation. As a result of close collaboration with Alpha, for the first time the challenges associated with monitoring the external power supply in non-coaxial portions of the network have been solved. Operators can now monitor, detect and proactively address any issues impacting the external power supply without resorting to clunky and expensive solutions.

“Virtual hubs are a highly-useful tool for cable operators in today’s network architectures,” said John Dahlquist, vice president of marketing, Aurora Networks. ”By combining our expertise with the dominant supplier of external power supplies for this technology, Alpha, we have simply taken another step in helping our customers to prepare their networks for today and the future evolution to broadband.”

“Power supply monitoring is essential to network performance given the demand for high-quality, high-reliability networks,” said Rob Anderson, senior director of product management, Alpha Technologies. “Through the combined efforts of Aurora Networks and Alpha, operators are now able to efficiently and cost-effectively monitor power supplies in today’s evolving fiber-rich cable networks.”
