STOCKHOLM -- Transmode, a global supplier of packet-optical networking solutions today announced several new Metro and Regional 100G deployments. This includes customer orders from North America and deployments in Finland with FNE-Finland Oy.
Following the release of Transmode's Metro and Regional 100G solution, Transmode has already made considerable progress with the new technology. Transmode has received its first customer orders for the new solution from an unnamed North American network operator and has been selected for 100G rollout by FNE-Finland, one of that country's leading alternative backbone capacity providers.
FNE-Finland was founded by a group of local telecommunications companies to provide a common backbone network for the group and has since expanded to also sell capacity to a broad range of external customers. Since 2011 the company has built a national ROADM-based Flexible Optical Network using Transmode's TM-Series to support its customers across the country.
In December 2012, FNE-Finland conducted live traffic field trials, including 100G transmission over an 800+ km link, to demonstrate that its network is 100G-ready and can support all-optical 100G connectivity between any two locations in their network. FNE-Finland has now selected Transmode for 100G transmission and plans to start rolling out 100G capacity across the network. Transmode is supported locally in Finland by ACC Systems in the project with FNE-Finland.
