TeliaSonera IC Deploys 100G+ with NSN

TeliaSonera International Carrier has deployed a new 100G overlay network across Europe.

Specifically, the carrier has deployed a new 100G DWDM network based on Nokia Siemens Networks' hiT7300 platform that is operating with coherent CP-QPSK technology. The CP-QPSK modulation format is also used for TeliaSonera’s existing network to improve performance. Nokia Siemens Networks also provides a full set of care services including software maintenance, help desk as well as spare part management services. Financial terms were not disclosed.

“The new overlay network with our latest technology is fully integrated with Juniper routers to offer a seamless service portfolio to TeliaSonera’s subscribers. It will initially have 40 and 100GE (gigabit Ethernet) capacity with the potential to be upgraded to 400G and beyond,” stated Mikko Lavanti, head of optical networks customer sales and support at Nokia Siemens Networks.

“The increased adoption of bandwidth-hungry applications requires capacity upgrades,” said Mattias Fridström, vice president, head of technology, TeliaSonera International Carrier. “We share a long-standing relationship with Nokia Siemens Networks and are very satisfied with its installed base in 10G and 40G wavelengths across the European segment of our global network. Its leading technology for high capacity networks is exactly what we required for this major transition in our network."
