Perhaps as early as the end of March, Lucent Technologies (Murray Hill, NJ) hopes to begin shipping its WaveStar DataExpress 10 gigabit networking system, said to be the first of its kind to bring such a capacity directly to local ISP networks. The system is designed to help carriers build local data networks that are four times faster while saving up to 60 percent in costs, and up to 40 percent in space requirements and power consumption.

"Our WaveStar DataExpress will push high-speed fiber optics into ISP networks as we help break through the bottlenecks that slow down the Internet and other data transports," says Harry Bosco, group president of Lucent's Optical Networking Group. Bosco says the end-to-end solution "cuts across IP, ATM, and all other networking elements."

Lucent has already shipped its new system to select customers around the world. Metromedia Fiber Network (San Jose, CA), a firm that brings together ISPs and content providers for maximum Internet performance, will be the first U.S. company to test WaveStar Data Express. (www.lucent.com)
