STOCKHOLM -- Malaysia's premier carrier-neutral wholesale network provider, Fiberail, has improved its national and international communications capabilities by installing a suite of wave division multiplexed (WDM) equipment from Transmode, a leading provider of optical networking solutions for transport of data, voice and video traffic.

Fiberail, a joint venture between Telekom Malaysia (TM) - and Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB), operates an extensive fiber-optic network throughout the country. The newly enhanced network will deliver "triple-play" voice, video and data services and other total business solutions.

Fiberail needed to boost its network capacity between Malaysia's capital Kuala Lumpur and Singapore due to the rapid increase in bandwidth requirement from its customers. The latest expansion has involved two main parts of Fiberail's network, both of which have been improved with the Transmode TM-Series WDM platform as well as the network management system TNM installation.

The first is a point to point connection in Kuala Lumpur, which provides 10G, STM-16 and 1GE services; the 10G is a back-up and protection link for a major mobile operator. The link is based on a combination of CWDM and unamplified DWDM over a single fibre to save on fibre usage. The second part is a larger amplified DWDM network between Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bharu on Malaysia's border with Singapore.

Ramzi Abu Bakar, Senior Engineer, Fundamental Planning of Fiberail commented, "In planning our network expansion, Fiberail committed to finding a solution that would expand services without necessitating a complete overhaul. We were looking for consolidation, economy, reliability, simplicity, and flexibility. The Transmode systems have met and surpassed our expectations in all areas."
