Telstra Selects Ericsson for Optical Transport

Telstra awarded a contract valued at more than US$230 million to Ericsson to help evolve the operator's inter-capital, regional and rural transport networks.

The Ericsson transport deal will provide significant capacity expansions up to 10Gbps through the use of optical (SDH/DWDM) and radio (PDH/SDH) technology. It also allows Telstra to increase the flexibility, capacity and resiliency of their Next Generation IP Network.

Ericsson said the deal highlights the benefits of its Marconi acquisition.
