27 June 2003 Tokyo Lightwave -- Seeking to enhance the quality and capacity of its Gigaway broadband leased line service in metropolitan Tokyo, Japanese carrier NTT Communications (NTT Com) has begun deployment of a new, carrier-grade metro optical network based on the OPTera Metro 5200 DWDM multi-service platform from Nortel Networks.

Deployment of OPTera Metro 5200 will enable NTT Com to provide a Fibre Channel leased line service and provision its Gigaway service as necessary to provide a higher speed point-to-point backbone service at low cost in the disaster recovery market.

The NTT Com Gigaway service is an ultra high-speed, highly reliable and high quality backbone service that supports a wide range of interfaces--up to 10 Gbits/sec, the highest in Japan. Internet service providers, service providers, and enterprises that need data communications services for remote backup, disaster recovery, and other mission-critical applications use the Gigaway service.

In addition, NTT Com's Gigaway will also provide leased broadband network infrastructure to enterprise customers, reducing the costs associated with building and maintaining private networks.

OPTera Metro 5200 is a protocol and bit-rate independent DWDM multi-service platform that delivers 32 wavelengths of bandwidth, 10-Gbits/sec scalability, sub-rate multiplexing capabilities, network management, point-to-point and survivable ring-based network capabilities, and modeling tools to simplify deployment of efficient DWDM metropolitan networks.
