AimValley & the Telecom sector

AimValley primarily serves the world’s Network Equipment Manufacturers (NEMs) by providing Design & Engineering services and network adaptation and circuit emulation products.

Leveraging our long history of expertise in telecom networking product development, NEM clients of AimValley appreciate the efficiency, quality and “carrier-class” reliability we deliver through our products and design services.

"Network Equipment Manufacturers depend on Design Services and Smart SFP solutions from AimValley to efficiently broaden their product portfolios."

Telecom Evolution

Network elements such as switches, routers, optical transport, customer premise equipment, radios are constantly being improved and there is migration and convergence to IP packet and high-speed ethernet. At the same time, the need for electronic communications is now woven into everyone’s life and machine-to-machine communications are increasing exponentially. The number of endpoints, the data rates required, and the reliability requirements are constantly increasing.

Today’s telecom networks are complex and constantly evolving and changing to meet the needs of both the individual subscribers and the enterprise networks alike. Technologies such as 5G mobility, IoT, Cloud Solutions, and software-defined networking are driving next-generation upgrades alongside ever-increasing data rates and larger volumes of mission-critical data.

The global scale of the world’s telecom networks is massive and in general communications networks incrementally evolve, they are not revolutionized. For that reason networks and therefore, network elements must not only meet next-generation data rates and applications but must also consider the existing network environments. It is commonplace for converged networks to leverage high-speed optical services at 10G, 100G, 400G or higher, while supporting combinations of 4G, 5G mobility, T1, T3 (DS-3), E1, OTN, SDH / SONET and of course multiple data rates of Ethernet.

New IETF Standard - Private Line over Packet Switched Networks (PLE)

A new method for transparent high bit-rate transport is being worked at and submitted to the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) through an internet-draft.

This new standardized methodology is named Private Line Emulation over Packet Switched Networks (PLE). Products supporting this standard enable network operators to reliably transport various types of high bit-rate client services such as SONET/SDH, Fibre Channel, OTN, and layer 1 Ethernet bit-streams across packet networks.

All that is required are 2 PLE adapters at the service end-points that convert the client signal into packets and vice-versa.

Erik van Veelen, one of our Senior Network Architects is contributing to forming this new Standard.

Our Design Process

AimValley stands out against other engineering design services providers. We design in sync with your team, delivering value throughout the process.

For almost two decades we have been designing telecommunications network elements for our clients. Our “edge” is our deep expertise in Telecom interfaces, protocols, standards and the accumulated knowledge of our design teams. Combining legacy services and interfaces with cutting-edge high-speed communications technologies is what we do best. Applications we have delivered include switches, routers, aggregation devices, network interface devices, products for optical packet systems, High-Speed Ethernet, fronthaul CPRI devices, products and technology for digital clock recovery, synchronization, and several aspects of timing. Our solutions cover every data rate from 64 kbit/s up to 800 Gigabit per second and everything in between.

Our Telecom customers also depend on us for our Smart SFPs. This product line of AimValley, developed in conjunction with our partner OE Solutions of South Korea combines the optics, electronics, FPGA and code to deliver an easy and simple way to add circuit emulation of T1, E1, SONET/SDH, OTN, OAM responders to your routers, switches and packet-optical network elements.

Unlike generic engineering services companies, AimValley provides the entire end-to-end process that has been enjoyed and validated by several Tier 1 NEMs across hundreds of designs.

Outsourcing design work to companies that lack deep telecom subject matter and technical expertise can be a frustrating process, where your engineers spend as much time educating, training, managing, correcting and troubleshooting the work provided by the outsource company staff, that the intended efficiency is not attained.
