China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MII) has granted a Network Access License to Swedish optical transport systems developer Transmode for its TM-Series optical networking equipment. The license clears the way for Transmode products to be used in China's public network.

Acquisition of the license is a major milestone for companies wishing to sell products into the Chinese market. The MII granted the license to Transmode after its systems met a series of requirements and passed product testing. The test process includes testing the live operation of the systems, evaluation by MII engineers, as well as the submission of complete documentation.

"We are delighted to have MII certification awarded to us as it both reflects the hard work of our Asian team but more importantly also opens up one of the world's largest markets to us as a company," said Karl Thedéen Transmode's CEO. "The significance of the MII certification in China is Transmode's ability to meet stringent demands in multiple marketplaces. We continue to demonstrate that we are a global company and that our packet-optical networking equipment is meeting growing bandwidth demands worldwide."
