Broighter Upgrade Dublin Metro Network With Transmode WDM


Broighter, the specialist High-Bandwidth Broadband Provider for Dublin, announced today that it has selected Transmode, the optical networking pioneer, to supply metro WDM technology for its Dublin metro network upgrade.

The upgraded Dublin metro network uses the Transmode TS-1100 to provide a CWDM overlay network on the existing infrastructure thereby providing considerable service flexibility and future-proofing for the network.

Broighter Networks offers resilient, cost-effective, high-speed broadband services to enterprise customers and service providers in the greater Dublin area. The services operate at speeds of between 10 Mbit/s and 1 Gbit/s and are based on Metro Ethernet technology. Applications for these services include enterprise site interconnects, Internet access, wireless base station aggregation and mobile phone backhaul.

“As a rapidly growing Metro Ethernet based service provider we were in need of a cost effective and highly functional optical network to support our planned network expansion,” said Joerg Steegmueller, Chief Marketing Officer at Broighter. “Transmode provided us with a network design that met our day-one requirements whilst also providing a platform that is capable of expansion to DWDM and 10G when required.”

The Transmode TS-1100 provides Broighter with a flexible and scalable platform supporting the 7700 multi-protocol 2.5G Transponder, 7900 multi-protocol 10G Transponder, 5500 4 port low speed muxponder and the 5400 2x GbE/FC muxponder. Using patented Intelligent WDM (iWDM) protocol recognition and functionality such as SFP/XFP pluggable optics the TS-1100 provides network operators and enterprises with a true plug and play experience, greatly reducing network and service turn up times.

“We are delighted to announce this customer win with Broighter,” said Andy Howard, Sales Manager at Transmode. “We recently announced that we have reached one of our 2006 strategic objectives by becoming one of the top 3 Metro WDM vendors in Europe and have actually been ranked number 2 by Infonetics Research. Optical Infrastructure for Metro Ethernet networks, such as here with Broighter, is one of the primary drivers behind our growth as Ethernet becomes evermore widespread within telecoms networks.”
