Compass EOS Ltd. Key Developments

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.

NTT Communications Installs Compass-EOS Router Equipment in Japan

Compass-EOS announced, together with Net One Systems 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 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.
