The OptiPacket OP-X1 combines the features and expertise of MRV’s optical and packet product suites.

Here’s what the judges had to say:

“The judges were extremely impressed with the quality of entries we received this year,” said Michael Gallagher, President and Founder of the Stevie Awards. “More than 3,400 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration and more than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners. The competition was intense and every organization that has won should be proud of its innovation and accomplishments.”

Who does this effect? Anyone needing higher bandwidth and looking to future proof their network.

The OP-X1 platform addresses the need for higher bandwidth requirements driven by the increased adoption of cloud services. It is the industry’s first purpose-built, 100G Ethernet access device, designed to extend 100G Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) capabilities to the last mile and enable scalability to thousands of CE services, advanced OAM and traffic management, plus migration paths to SDN and NFV architectures.
