Intune Networks Delivers World's First NEBS Certified Distributed Switch

Dublin, Ireland, Jan 08, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- Intune Networks announce NEBS certification for its iVX8000. The system, which is uniquely able to switch and transport packets simultaneously over hundreds of miles, is ideally suited for carriers.


It is able to transform distributed data centres into single unified platforms, deliver large-scale video-on-demand services and it will help transform the next-generation of metro networks into software controlled computing platforms.

John Dunne, Intune's Chief Technology Officer said, 'Our customers have highly demanding environments, so their requirements for resiliency and safety are of the highest standard. Achieving NEBS certification is extremely important for our customers in North America, but also an endorsement of our system for major carriers all around the world.' NEBS (Network Equipment-Building System) standards certify systems as being suitable for use in a typical United States RBOC Central Office. Certification is granted to systems that can pass a rigorous set of safety, spatial and environmental tests including resistance to earthquakes, lightning strikes and fire.

Intune's Chief Operating Officer, Arthur Smith added, 'In my experience, it is noteworthy for any system to achieve NEBS compliance at its first attempt, and it is particularly creditable that our engineers have built such an innovative system that is also so robust.' The testing was carried out by independent testing laboratory MET. MET is a global test and certification laboratory providing EMC, environmental, product safety and telecom testing. MET's designation as a Verizon certified Independent Test Laboratory for NEBS highlights the recognition of MET certification by all of the US RBOCs. MET also works closely with AT&T and their NEDS standards.

About Intune Networks Limited (http://www.intunenetworks.com) Intune Networks has developed a brand-new networking technology, allowing telecom operators to scale networks in a way that is simpler to operate, uses fewer components and is far more efficient than any previous system.

Intune has invented a new way of forwarding packets over long distances, creating a distributed optical switch that can switch packets across hundreds of kilometres. Intune's technology uses tuneable LASERs to switch the packets across its system. This reduces network complexity and increases connectivity by making bandwidth instantly available to any point in the network.

Intune are a venture-backed company headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, with offices in the United States and additional research and development facilities in Belfast, UK.
