-- Transmission of 80 protected wavelengths (increasing from 32 protected wavelengths in prior releases) to allow up to 640 separate services to be transported over a single pair of fibers

-- Support for transmission distances of up to 200 km across a single span and new Raman amplification modules that support network distances beyond 1000 km without regeneration

New management and provisioning functionality includes support for a Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS) control plane, Generic Framing Procedure (GFP), Optical Transport Network (OTN) aggregation, and G.709 digital wrapper technology. When combined with existing support for an Optical Supervisory Channel (OSC) and an Embedded Communications Channel (ECC), the FLASHWAVE 7420 platform offers unmatched operation and service provisioning capabilities from any node on the network.

The same NETSMART(R) 1500 Element Management System that manages existing Fujitsu SONET and WDM network elements can also be used to manage the FLASHWAVE 7420 platform and provision services on demand. This seamless integration with legacy networks leverages existing infrastructure investments, enabling a true end-to-end network solution. In addition, a comprehensive network modeling tool is available to simplify traffic planning, engineering and product ordering responsibilities. Complex networks can be configured quickly, and "what if" scenarios explored, without the typical need for laborious manual analysis.
