NetCologne selects OFS optical fiber cable for network upgrade in the Rhein-Erft region
March 24, 2005
BONN, Germany -- OFS, designer, manufacturer and supplier of leading edge fiber optic products, today announced that it has been selected by NetCologne GmbH, one of Germany's largest regional telecommunications carriers, to upgrade their network in the Rhein-Erft region with 80 kilometers of AllWave® Zero Water Peak (ZWP) optical fiber in its 144 fiber-count laminated aluminum polyethylen sheath cable design.
The installation of AllWave ZWP fiber can increase capacity for voice and data in the areas served by NetCologne by up to 50%. AllWave ZWP optical fiber developed by OFS offers this advantage to its customers by allowing transmission in the 1400-nanometer range and consequently can increase the useable wavelength range by as much as 50%.
"With this forward looking technology we can create as much as 50% additional bandwidth capacity with the same investment," said Mr. Norbert Ruttgers, Manager Planning & Implementation Network Operation of NetCologne.
"The installation of AllWave ZWP gives NetCologne a competitive advantage over communication providers in the area by offering its customers increased bandwidth to improve the customer experience on the NetCologne network," added Reinhard Schmidt, Sales Director of OFS Europe. "We are proud that we are able to support NetCologne with our premium products. With our sales office in Bonn, in the immediate proximity to Cologne, we were able to meet new requirements of NetCologne in a real-time fashion."
