KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- Transmode, a global supplier of packet optical networking solutions, and local partner Nera Networks today announced that Fiberail, a regional carrier's carrier, has upgraded its backbone network to a packet-optical 100G-ready network for the provision of high capacity links across Malaysia.
Fiberail's new 100G optical network is an international network that provides multiple high-capacity communications to Tier 1 and Tier 2 service providers in Malaysia. The Transmode solution increases Fiberail's capacity and service offerings substantially, especially in the northern half of Malaysia.
At the heart of the solution deployed by Fiberail is Transmode's recently-announced, EMXP 220 IIe, a packet-optical transport switch. This both provides 10G and 100G ports and a central 220G switch giving wire-speed switching. For Fiberail, the EMXP 220 provides 10G networking today and a future 100G upgrade via the simple addition of 100G CFP pluggable optics. By combing the best of the optical and Ethernet worlds, it enables the carrier to turn on MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 services as well as, MPLS-TP and OTN transport ensuring high service performance and scalability.
Fiberail needed to expand capacity on its fiber network and cost-effectively increase the flexibility of service provisioning to its customers. With this network, Fiberail is able to serve a broad range of customers effectively and efficiently now and in the future.
The new network was provided by Transmode to Fiberail through a local partner Nera Networks, a regional systems integrator.
