11 June 2003 Stockholm, Sweden Lightwave -- Transmode Systems AB, supplier of transmission equipment for fiber-optic networks, announced today that its CWDM platform, System 1100, has been chosen by the Danish alternative service provider GlobalConnect.
GlobalConnect is offering value-added data transmission services to data and telecommunications companies in Denmark, Northern Germany, and Sweden. The company is currently expanding its backbone network by utilizing one of its fiber rings between Copenhagen and Hamburg.
"Transmode's ability to add amplification to their CWDM platform makes their solution very attractive for this network," explains GlobalConnect's chief executive officer Niels Zibrandtsen.
"We are very happy to see among other features our amplified solution come to the benefit of a service provider like GlobalConnect," adds Isaac Olasoko, Transmode's chief executive officer. "This solution saves a number of repeater sites and, in combination with the overall cost-efficiency of our CWDM solution, we are able to reach a price point that our competitors just can't achieve."
GlobalConnect also has a couple other networks in their pipeline, for which they have Transmode in mind as transmission equipment supplier. Ring, access, and Metropolitan networks within Copenhagen are planned as well as a ring between Copenhagen and Gothenburg.
