German Carrier K-net upgrades B2B network with Orckit-Corrigent’s packet transport network system, 3M services support

K-net Telekommunikation Gmbh, a German telecommunication service provider, has deployed Orckit-Corrigent’s MPLS-based CM-4000 PTN switches and CM-View network management system, and 3M Services' support, to upgrade its transport networking infrastructure for the delivery of enterprise VPN and carrier-of-carrier applications.

K-net Telekommunikation Gmbh, a German telecommunication service provider, has deployed Orckit-Corrigent’s MPLS-based CM-4000 packet transport network (PTN) switches and CM-View network management system, and 3M Services' support, to upgrade its transport networking infrastructure for the delivery of enterprise VPN and carrier-of-carrier applications.

"As a company serving more than 250 customers, including large enterprises, we evaluated packet transport solutions that offered high quality of service, bandwidth scalability, and affordability," says Hans Dengel, technical director of K-net. "Orckit-Corrigent's products best meet our needs, and our long-term relationship with 3M services enables us to facilitate a wide services package for Orckit-Corrigent's technologies."

This deployment marks the fourth order received from European carriers over the past four months: EnviaTEL, VSE NET, and Cegecom also selected Orckit-Corrigent's PTN solutions and 3M Services' solutions to expand their networking infrastructure.

Orckit-Corrigent’s CM-4000 is a series of packet transport network switches that offer a flexible mix of Ethernet and TDM services to facilitate the migration toward unified packet network. These switches, based on MPLS and MPLS-TP technologies, are designed to scale up the delivery of residential, business, and mobile backhauling services in next-generation telecom networks.
