XO Picks NSN's Optical Transport for 40G Network

XO Communications is deploying Nokia Siemens Networks' hiT 7300 DWDM 40 Gbps platform to provide a high-capacity, cost-efficient and scalable transport system. NSN said its platform was chosen for its high degree of modularity and because it is based on a common hardware platform, which saves staff training time and OPEX, and reduces the number of spare parts needed to be stocked. Financial terms were not disclosed.

In addition to the hiT 7300, Nokia Siemens Networks will supply its leading Transport Network Management System (TNMS) to optimize the network's operations through centralized control and supervision. The agreement also includes Nokia Siemens Networks' professional services for network implementation and care. Financial terms were not disclosed.
