Germany's Carrier K-net Selects Orckit-Corrigent's Packet Transport

K-net Telekommunikation Gmbh, a regional carrier based in southwest Germany, has deployed Orckit-Corrigent's MPLS based CM-4000 PTN switches and CM-View network management system, and 3M Services' support, to upgrade its transport networking infrastructure for the delivery of enterprise VPN and Carrier-of-Carrier applications.

Orckit-Corrigent's CM-4000 is a series of Packet Transport Network switches that offer a flexible mix of Ethernet and TDM services to facilitate the migration toward unified packet network. These switches are based on MPLS and MPLS-TP technologies and are designed to scale up the delivery of residential, business and mobile backhauling services in next-generation telecom networks.

Orckit-Corrigent has racked up four wins with European carriers over the past four months: EnviaTEL, VSE NET and Cegecom. Each of these carriers have also selected Orckit-Corrigent's PTN solutions and 3M Services' solutions to expand their networking infrastructure.

"K-net's decision once again highlights the market acceptance of Orckit-Corrigent's innovative solutions," said Mr. Manfred Brandt, Managing Director of 3M Services. "We are pleased that our partnership with Orckit-Corrigent allows us to increase our local customer base and we look forward to working together to supply K-Net with the greatest combination of technology and customer care."
