AUGUST 17, 2010 – Transmode says it has been awarded a major contract by Teracom to supply network infrastructure for a high-capacity optical ring in Sweden. The network will carry HDTV and other valued-added services.

Teracom, a longstanding customer of Transmode, distributes radio and TV to households nationwide for its broadcast customers. Teracom required the network to cope with an increase in traffic due to the extra number of HDTV channels and growth in other value-added services. The new optical ring provides transmission between Stockholm, Malmö, Gothenberg, and other major centers. It supports 2.5G and 10G transmission end-to-end today and 40/100G in the future. The network will complement Teracom's existing, mainly microwave based, infrastructure.

"After a competitive bid, we chose to award the contract to Transmode for three reasons: modularity, flexibility, and total cost," said Peo Gaasvik, CTO at Teracom. "By simple ‘plug and play’ additions we have the possibility of upgrading the network at any time to add new functionality. We are also very pleased with the level of support we have had from Transmode over the years," he continued.

By supplying a 40-channel DWDM network with pluggable optics throughout, Transmode asserts it has enabled Teracom to easily change the configuration of wavelengths and transmission control at will. Teracom is deploying Transmode's TM-Series optical networking system in its new network to ensure delivery and reliability of multiple services to its customers. The operator can add or reconfigure new services for its customers with ease.
