Transmode Picked for 100G Backbone in Hong Kong

Hutchison Global Communications Limited (HGC) awarded a 3-year contract to Transmode to supply a ROADM-based 100G optical backbone network for a new high capacity network in Hong Kong.

Under the frame agreement, HGC will deploy Transmode’s TM-Series including Gigabit Ethernet, 2.5G, 10G, 40G and 100G transport over an 80-wavelength ROADM-based Flexible Optical Network with Transmode’s Enlighten multi-layer management suite. The first deliveries for the project have already started and initial services are planned to be operational in H1, 2013.

The new network, which will cover the entire region, including Hong Kong, Kowloon and New Territories, will initially serve corporate and wholesale customers by interconnecting a large number of customer premises, data centres and submarine cable landing stations.
