TDC Selects Nortel DWDM
COPENHAGEN -- TDC, Denmark´s leading provider of communications solutions, has selected a Nortel(1) (TSX: NT)(NYSE: NT) advanced next-generation optical network solution to help meet the growing demand in Denmark and the Nordic region for bandwidth-hungry multimedia services such as IPTV, VoIP and enterprise Virtual Private Networks (VPNs).
"We selected Nortel's DWDM technology because they are among the industry leaders in this advanced technology and their solution supports our business mission by cost-effectively delivering the highest levels of flexible bandwidth to support current and future needs," said Mads A. Rasmussen, vice president, Network Technology, TDC Solutions.
As a key supplier for TDC's next-generation network, Nortel will deploy its DWDM solution - Common Photonic Layer with Optical Multiservice Edge 6500 (OME6500) service platform - to enhance and expand the existing TDC network. The network currently covers the major metropolitan areas of the Nordic region.
