JANUARY 31, 2011 -- Orckit Communications Ltd., a packet transport network (PTN) vendor, announced that VSE NET GmbH, a German regional telecommunication service provider, has selected Orckit-Corrigent’s PTN system and 3M Services’ first-line support to upgrade its transport networking infrastructure with packet technologies.
“After reviewing numerous options, we are confident that the combination of Orckit-Corrigent products with 3M’s services package will provide us with the greatest value and fastest return-on-investment,” says Michael Leidinger, technical director of VSE NET. “This implementation will not only help us enhance our current business service offerings, but more importantly, will allow VSE NET to provide high-capacity, reliable, and affordable connectivity services to our customers."
The contract includes Orckit-Corrigent’s CM-4000 PTN metro aggregation switches, CM-11 multi-service access switch, and CM-View, the corresponding network management system. The combined solution, based on MPLS and MPLS-TP technologies, will enable VSE NET to grow to 100GE interfaces, says a company spokesperson.
“VSE NET's selection of our platform demonstrates the competitive advantage and tangible benefits provided by our advanced technologies,” says Izhak Tamir, co-founder, chairman of the board, and president of Orckit Communication. “Additionally, building on our established cooperation with 3M Services is very important for us as we continue to expand globally.”
