Transmode Wins Ethernet Backhaul Deal with Virgin Media

Transmode was awarded a new eight year contract with Virgin Media Business for Ethernet-based mobile backhaul service delivery networks across the UK. The contract is valued at up to 150 M SEK in 2011 and 2012 and deliveries begin in the third quarter 2011.

Virgin Media Business will begin deploying Transmode's optical networking systems later this year with an initial deployment connecting 14 regional Aggregation Networks (ANs) that will connect a significant number of base stations with fibre-based synchronous Gigabit Ethernet services.

Transmode's Native Packet Optical architecture, including its recently-launched Layer 2 Ethernet Muxponder family, enables Ethernet services to be provided from the mobile operators' core node locations right through to the operator's cell sites.
