LONDON -- Transmode, a pioneering supplier of optical networking systems, announced today that it has been selected by Transport for London (TfL) for a CWDM solution to expand and improve its metropolitan and storage networks, which underpin management of London's public transport services. TfL, the integrated body responsible for the capital's transport systems, has selected Transmode's TS-1100 platform to expand the capacity of its data-transport network and to improve data-traffic management.

Efficient data management of TfL's ever-expanding communications needs is vital to support the 9 million passenger journeys made each day on TfL's various systems that include bus, tube, rail and tram.

The Transmode solution supports two key applications: expanding Fibre Channel capabilities for TfL's Storage Area Network (SAN) and increasing the availability of Gigabit Ethernet channels for the Metropolitan Area Network (MAN).

"Since we started installing the TfL system in September 2004, there has been a process of continuous upgrade," said Sean Davies, Transmode's UK Sales Manager. "TfL has now deployed multiple wavelengths across its SAN and MAN, and we are further developing the client's networks to be even more flexible and easily expanded as traffic increases."
