STOCKHOLM -- Transmode, a global supplier of packet-optical networking solutions, today announced that Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), has selected Transmode for an integrated packet-optical metro-core and access network to support its students and researchers in optical communication research and development.
UTM is an innovation-led and graduate-focused research university and takes a leading role in Malaysia's national high technology development strategies. To further develop UTM's capabilities within the optical networking R'n'D community, the university is developing an advanced and scalable optical communication research facility. UTM aims to support existing research activities and also to provide an enhanced training facility on optical communication systems and networking technology. To support this activity, Transmode will be deploying the TM-Series platform with ROADM units to enable cost optimized Flexible Optical Networking supporting layer 1 and layer 2 packet-optical traffic.
Transmode has provided ROADM nodes that are built for dynamic network applications and allow hitless wavelength allocation and a future proof traffic design. In addition, the network includes packet-optical Layer 2 units that are designed to integrate Ethernet functionality in optical networks and reduce the need for additional expensive and complex equipment.
