Fujitsu Advances Open ROADM Innovation with Industry’s First Network Design and Planning Tool

Virtuora® PD selected by Tier One service provider to speed design and deployment of scalable, cost-effective multi-vendor networks

RICHARDSON, Texas--()--Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. today announced that the industry’s first multi-vendor network design and planning tool for Open ROADM networks has been selected by a Tier One service provider. FUJITSU Network Virtuora® PD, an SDN-based application, optimizes and simplifies planning, design, and testing of optical networks that conform to Open ROADM specifications.

As service providers strive for greater accuracy, cost efficiency and scalability — particularly with regard to critical communications infrastructure that is now more important than ever — they need advanced tools that ensure interoperability and peak performance. Virtuora PD enables closed-loop multi-vendor network design and deployment with capacity planning; and a unified view of planned and deployed networks.

Virtuora PD accesses a set of common network characteristics from multiple vendors’ equipment to align with service provider business processes. As a result, service providers can speed up the overall process of network design and deployment; reduce errors with zero touch provisioning; and drive out operational inefficiencies with tightly integrated Operations Support Systems (OSS) tools.

“As a contributing member of the Open ROADM Multi-Source Agreement (MSA), Fujitsu is committed to the core principles of multi-vendor, software-enabled Open ROADM ecosystems,” said Francois Lafontaine, vice president and head of the software business at Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. “Virtuora PD is a key component in enabling open networks, helping providers overcome the disadvantages of proprietary architectures.”
