Transmode wins national optical network contract from Teracom in Sweden


Stockholm - Transmode, a leading supplier of optical networking solutions, today announced that it has been awarded a major contract by Teracom to supply network infrastructure for a high capacity optical ring in Sweden. The network will carry HDTV and other valued-added services.

Teracom, a longstanding customer, of Transmode, distributes radio and TV to households nationwide for its broadcast customers. Teracom required the network to cope with an enormous increase in traffic due to the extra number of HDTV channels and growth in other value-added services. The new optical ring provides transmission between Stockholm, Malmö, Gothenberg and other major centres. It supports 2.5G and 10G transmission end-to-end today and 40/100G in the future. The network will complement Teracom’s existing, mainly microwave based, infrastructure.

“After a competitive bid, we chose to award the contract to Transmode for three reasons: modularity, flexibility and total cost,” said Peo Gaasvik, CTO at Teracom. “By simple ”plug and play“ additions we have the possibility of upgrading the network at any time to add new functionality. We are also very pleased with the level of support we have had from Transmode over the years,” he continued.

By supplying a 40-channel DWDM network with pluggable optics throughout, Transmode has enabled Teracom to easily change the configuration of wavelengths and transmission control at will. Teracom is deploying Transmode’s TM-Series optical networking solution in its new high capacity network to ensure delivery and reliability of multiple services to its customers. The operator can add or reconfigure new services for its customers with ease.

“We are delighted to have been selected by Teracom for this new network rollout. Their continued trust in our equipment and solutions is built on an already strong working relationship,” said Björn Andersson, Vice President of Sales at Transmode. “We have once again demonstrated that Transmode’s TM-Series delivers a winning solution in terms of easily managed building blocks for multiple service types. The flexibility of Transmode’s systems enables customers to configure networks that are tailor made to their specific needs.”
