Brasil Telecom GlobeNet Selects NSN for Optical Backbone

Brasil Telecom GlobeNet will deploy Nokia Siemens Networks' SURPASS hiT 7300 DWDM platform in North America. Other components of the turnkey solution are Nokia Siemens Networks' Telecommunications Network Management System and a services package including network design, commissioning, installation as well as training and extended care. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Nokia Siemens Networks has already begun deployment of the SURPASS hiT 7300 multi-haul DWDM solution for Brasil Telecom GlobeNet. When the first phase of the build-out is complete, South Florida will be linked to Brasil Telecom GlobeNet's undersea fiber optic network, which currently connects the East Coast of the United States, Bermuda, Brazil and Venezuela. This will position Brasil Telecom GlobeNet to strengthen its presence in the North America market.http://www.nokiasiemensnetworks.com
