CANNES, France -- Nokia Siemens Networks today introduces the industry’s first DWDM single platform serving metro to core, raising the bar in the optical transport field offering carriers an efficient and cost effective solution. The new release of the hiT 7300 combines its renowned core network performance with extended support for metro services.

Competitive DWDM platforms on the market currently require at least two DWDM systems to cover the spectrum of reaches, transmission speed and applications in metro, regional, long-haul and ultra-long haul. Nokia Siemens Networks’ hiT 7300 supports all reaches and transmission speeds at pay-as-you-grow economics that meets market price levels at each category of application segment (i.e. metro, regional, long haul and ultra-long haul) on one platform.

“A single solution is the best way to help carriers respond to CAPEX and OPEX pressure. Having one platform for all reaches and applications reduces the cost for: Spares, operation and mainte-nance, training and network management, space and power consumption”, said Bernd Schumacher head of IP transport at Nokia Siemens Networks.
