Press Release

Wave2Wave Solution, the global leader in physical layer automation, today introduced two large robotic fibre switches to its ROME product family, ROME MAX and ROME MAX-T. Both switches offer large fibre port counts in a full rack configuration within a standard 19-inch footprint. This drives both efficiency and simplicity for data centre operators and allows them to roll out Layer-0 automation using a plug-and-play approach.

With IoT, 5G, edge computing and the software-defined transformation of networks, fibre connectivity has become the nervous system of every data centre and telco infrastructure. Automation of fibre management is critical for the networks to scale, evolve and become future-proof.

The ROME MAX series of products offer factory integrated or field-installed options to give the customer flexibility to maximise its space usage. ROME MAX is in a seven-foot tall rack, while ROME MAX-T extends to eight feet to provide the highest fibre count. This product series removes the complexity of installing and managing a CLOS design by building it into the solution.

“Robots are here, robots are in the data centres, and ROME will be a key evolutionary solution in today’s transforming network,” said David Wang, Founder and CEO of Wave2Wave. “Data centre operators are constantly seeking new ways to differentiate themselves from the competition, whether that’s by providing more timely service offerings, improving the accuracy of data centre recordkeeping, or finding other innovative ways to help their customers grow. The latest additions to our ROME portfolio address these needs by speeding up and simplifying the way Layer-0 services are rolled out.”

As with the entire ROME portfolio, the ROME MAX series provides standard APIs for network management software integration, allowing customers the ability to virtualise physical networks on a global scale. Layer-0 powered by software control extends automation to the physical network.
