SIAE MICROELETTRONICA Launches a Future Proof Network Operating System Powered by Aricent's Intelligent Switching Solution

MILAN, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --



SIAE MICROELETTRONICA - Operating System (SM-OS) provides carrier grade features and supports Software Defined Networks (SDN) for simplified and high performance network infrastructure.

SIAE MICROELETTRONICA, a leader in wireless communication technology, has announced a new operating system for all its next generation transport platforms. The SM-OS is powered by Aricent's Intelligent Switching Solution (ISS) software framework that offers Carrier Ethernet (CE) capabilities, advanced Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) features, and supports OpenFlow.

This announcement follows the start of a large deployment project on SM-OS based millimetre wave radio equipment, ALFOplus80HD.

SM-OS accelerates the distribution of new carrier grade features throughout the network elements in a reliable and proven way.  SM-OS guarantees consistent behaviour and operational capacity throughout SIAE's entire product portfolio, simplifying network infrastructure planning.

Aricent's ISS is pre-integrated with leading silicon platforms for diverse deployments, having an active roadmap aligning with the market-leading silicon roadmaps. A field-proven software framework, ISS, today has become an integral component of more than 100 types of networking equipment developed by leading equipment manufacturers.

"We are delighted to partner with SIAE MICROELETTRONICA on their next generation network OS development project. The SM-OS is a robust carrier grade OS, enabling service providers to do rapid deployments of new network services, while adding new revenue streams and reducing operational expenditure," said Sridhar Raju, assistant vice president, Aricent.

"Over the years, ISS has been proven in multiple deployments in mobile backhaul, including microwave backhaul, and in carrier aggregation switches. Moreover, OpenFlow support in ISS provides a smooth migration path to hybrid and pure SDN architectures," Sridhar added.

"Aricent brings a reliable and field-proven solution, integrating their software framework guarantees interworking with major IP players in the segment, advancing SIAE MICROELETTRONICA among them" said Claudio Passera, head of software development in SIAE MICROELETTRONICA. "We believe these are the right steps to address cross platform networking and multivendor interworking, representing, today, a predominant need in advanced operators' networks. The SM-OS software architecture represents a strong technology advancement, extending the product life cycle and future proofing the entire network infrastructure."
