Finnet taps Siemens for DWDM

March 29, 2006 Munich, Germany -- Siemens signed a contract with the Finnet Group for the delivery of a "turnkey" fiber-optic network based on DWDM technology. The network is to boost Finnet's network transfer capacity to up to 40 Gbit/sec on existing paths of all wavelengths to meet demand generated by an expanding number of broadband connections and increased data traffic on Finnet's core network.

The network is to boost Finnet's network transfer capacity to up to 40 Gbit/sec on existing paths of all wavelengths to meet demand generated by an expanding number of broadband connections and increased data traffic on Finnet's core network.

The contract covers the delivery of hardware and software components of Siemens' Surpass hiT 7500 multi-service provisioning platform (MSPP), as well as the platform's installation and implementation across a distance spanning between the cities of Helsinki and Oulu.

"This investment will long provide Finnet Carrier with the capability to respond to the challenges brought about by growing data volume," says Heikki Junnila, Finnet Carrier's managing director. "We will continue to implement new connections using DWDM technology."

"Our state-of-the-art DWDM technology based products enable network operators to implement solutions calling for high-speed data transfer rates in a flexible and cost-effective manner," adds Christian Unterberger, head of fixed networks at Siemens Communications.
