e.discom will deploy the MPLS and MPLS-TP based CM-4000 PTN switches and the accompanying CM-View network management system, complemented by 3M Services' support platform. An initial purchase order of about $1 million was accepted and shipment started in the third quarter 2011.

"e.discom is deploying a next-generation packet transport network that will deliver strong quality-of-service under very well-defined service-level agreements to our carrier and enterprise customers," said Gunter Hoheisel, head, networks and infrastructure of e.discom. He added that Orckit-Corrigent's products had successfully completed telemetry tests that included delay and jitter measurements to support those requirements.

Orckit-Corrigent’s CM-4000 portfolio is a series of small-, medium-, and large-capacity PTN switches that offer any combination of Ethernet, SDH, and PDH services to facilitate migration towards a unified packet network. These switches are based on dual-stack IP/MPLS and MPLS-TP, packet synchronization and circuit emulation technologies.
