Setia Haruman Technology selects Transmode for Cyberjaya MPLS-TP network
Setia Haruman Technology Sdn Bhd (SHTech), a metro fiber and broadband services provider in Cyberjaya, a “cybercity” in Malaysia, has chosen Transmode to supply optical transport equipment for a new MPLS-TP-based network.Cyberjaya is Malaysia's first IT-themed cybercity within the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC Malaysia). The MSC Malaysia is a 750-sq-km government-designated zone between Kuala Lumpur International Airport in the south to the Petronas Towers in the north. The area will be a high-technology and multimedia investment zone as part of the country's National ICT Initiative.SHTech serves the area via the Cyberjaya Metro Fiber Network (CMFN). The CMFN offers direct fiber connections via fiber to the building (FTTB) and fiber to the home (FTTH). The underlying infrastructure is based on a fully redundant ring architecture."We have chosen Transmode as our preferred optical networking supplier as the company offers a powerful combination of solutions delivering unmatched price/performance and key technical advantages, such as MPLS-TP," said Rodzi Ahmad, general manager at Setia Haruman Technology. "Transmode's outstanding ability to meet our needs combined with its strong local presence and ability to provide us with a differentiated service were also significant factors in our decision. We are confident that Transmode will not only enable us to provide our customers with a superior experience but will also enable us to continue to deliver new services to them in the long term."Transmode will deliver its TM-Series platforms, including the Ethernet Muxponder II (EMXPII) family that supports the company's recently announced Native Packet Optical 2.0 architecture. The equipment will help enable Setia Haruman Technology to deploy new Ethernet services and increase network capacity and service flexibility cost-effectively.Bjorn Andersson, vice president, sales, at Transmode, commented, "This substantial win is a great proof point to the progress the Transmode team has made in establishing the company as a key provider of innovative technology in the region. The Asia Pacific market is interesting in many ways and is one that we see as a key growth market for Transmode. So we are naturally very pleased with the win and the relationships that we continue to build in the region."
Hibernia Networks supplies 100-Gigabit Ethernet fiber services to Atrato Communications
Fiber-optic network services provider Hibernia Networks says it will supply multiple 100 Gigabit Ethernet circuits to Atrato Communications. Atrato, which provides IP transit and carrier services, will use the circuits to be able to supply native 100 Gigabit Ethernet services in Europe.“Atrato built its network with the latest in technology and is directly connected to key Internet exchanges to ensure we can deliver the most resilient and low-latency network routes,” states Michiel Muhlenbaumer, CEO for Atrato Communications. “Our new multiple 100 Gigabit Ethernet agreement with Hibernia Networks further prepares Atrato for the extreme growth we’ve been experiencing across the global IP market.”“We have seen extraordinary growth in global data traffic, in large part due to the adoption and use of cloud, video and interactive applications,” states Fergus Innes, vice president of sales, EMEA for Hibernia Networks. “As a result, Hibernia’s expert team has been helping companies like Atrato leverage its high capacity routes and customizable solutions so clients can quickly scale and reliably accommodate surges in traffic today and tomorrow.”
FTTH Council to FCC: That old copper has got to go
The Fiber to the Home Council Americas has filed comments with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in which it urged the Commission to support the efforts of carriers such as Verizon to replace their copper infrastructures with fiber to the home (FTTH).The practice by incumbents of removing copper plant and replacing it with fiber has come under attack by competitive providers who wish to use the legacy copper plant as unbundled infrastructure to provide services themselves. A group of these providers has petitioned the FCC to force the incumbents to leave this infrastructure in place.However, the FTTH Council Americas asserts that such a ruling would impose an undue financial burden on incumbents, particularly given the operational expense (opex) savings FTTH infrastructure provide. Having to maintain two sets of infrastructure might deter incumbents and other owners of copper plant from switching to fiber, the Council fears."It is clear that fiber technology is superior, that consumer demand is increasing rapidly for higher-performance networks, and, as a result, wireline providers of all types are by necessity deploying fiber plant," the FTTH Council wrote in its comments. In fact, the Council asserts, few if any network operators are installing new copper plant."The Commission has demonstrated it understands the great value of having high-performance networks deployed throughout the country and the need for regulatory policies to align with this objective," the Council added. "Keeping copper lines in place after fiber is built imposes substantial additional costs on (local exchange carriers), materially harming the business case for fiber deployments."In sum, the technology of choice for wireline network providers - and for their customers - is fiber," the Council wrote. "And the real issue before policymakers is how to remove barriers and provide incentives to increase the pace of these deployments."
