BigBand Networks and Internet Photonics said they have completed interoperability testing for a combined, cable-based system capable of delivering video-on-demand and standard- and high-definition television content via Ethernet.

The combo incorporates Internet Photonics' LightStack GSLAM and LightStack MX for 10 Gbps DWDM transport and BigBand's Transport Gateway and VOD Edge capabilities, which are both offered on the vendor's Broadband Multimedia-Service Router (BMR) and Broadband Multimedia-Service Edge (BME) platforms.

"Operators can cost-effectively deploy our companies' joint solution for their particular needs today, and then scale up and modify functionality as required over time," said BigBand Senior Director of Strategic Alliances Fabrice Beer-Gabel.
