NTT Communications Installs Compass-EOS Router Equipment in Japan

  NTT Communications Installs Compass-EOS Router Equipment in Japan  NTT installs Compass-EOS Router Equipment in its Japan facilities to test the benefits of the Compass-EOS icPhotonics^TM technology which raises networking capacity while reducing power consumption and footprint.  Business Wire  TOKYO & MILPITAS, Calif. -- April 7, 2014  Compass-EOS, the icPhotonics™ networking pioneer, today announced, together with Net One Systems, a leading systems integrator in Japan, that Compass-EOS’ r10004 equipment is installed at NTT Communications in Japan. This comes at a time when Internet traffic in Japan is expected to continue to dramatically grow, requiring telecommunication service providers to scale the capacity of their network infrastructure. NTT Communications, part of one of the world’s largest telecommunications companies, the NTT Group, is interested in the photonics-interconnect powered routers since they result in a radically smaller router footprint, a result of the innovation inherent in photonics interconnect and the resulting radical change of router architecture.  “NTT Communications recognizes that high router power consumption and the resulting cooling requirements, along with the large physical equipment footprint, are turning into serious problems as data requirements grow due to the popularity of smart devices and the use of video applications. The innovation brought by Compass-EOS’ icPhotonics^TM disrupts the routing industry and frees it from the power-hungry and large footprint routers that have dominated it. NTT Communications will start a practical test of the innovative technology with the help of Net One Systems and tackle the increase of network capacity while reducing power consumption and equipment footprint,” said Taku Morinobu, Director Technology Network Service at NTT Communications Corporation.  “NTT Communications understands the value of next-generation routing architectures and the technologies that drive them,” said Matt Bross, Chairman and CEO of Compass-EOS. “We look forward to proving that the benefits our next-generation routers provide are tangible and meaningful as measured by real operational performance indicators. Our icPhotonics^TM innovation is set to transform routing.”  About Compass-EOS  Compass EOS is a next-generation networking company.
