Compass Networks Key Developments

Compass-EOS Opens Sales and Research and Development and Commercial Sales Center in Russia

Compass-EOS announced that it is opening a new Research and Development and Commercial Sales center in Russia. This comes at a time when Internet traffic in Russia is expected to continue to dramatically grow and Russian network operators are facing the challenge of efficiently scaling their network capacity to meet demand. The Russian market holds tremendous potential, with large scale operators bringing in next generation technologies to support its immense communications and Internet traffic growth, resulting from large social networking and cloud computing players increasing their network capacity requirements.

Compass-EOS Joins OpenDaylight Project

Compass-EOS announced it has joined the OpenDaylight Project, a community-led and industry-supported open-source platform to advance Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). The Compass-EOS routers and SDN Forwarding Plane, a new breed of scale-out networking devices based on icPhotonics, enable SDN/NFV-based architectures in service provider networks. As part of the OpenDaylight project, Compass-EOS will collaborate with OpenDaylight member companies on the development of a common platform for network programmability, contributing code and lending expertise for WAN-centric SDN applications. Compass-EOS' photonic backplane technology, icPhotonics, powers ultra-bandwidth dense networking devices that bring networking into the age of modularity and virtualization. Announced this past October, the Compass-EOS SDN Forwarding Plane is a new, more powerful (yet less complex and power-hungry) networking element that takes its instructions from processes in the cloud.
