Huawei, a telecom solutions provider, has been selected by TDC to build its national and pan-European optical transportation network with Huawei’s market leading DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) solutions.
According to TDC, the improved transmission network will enable TDC to provide end-users with a better quality experience with fast growing services that requires high bandwidth, such as High Definition-TV, video conferencing and gaming.
“This agreement is a major milestone in our ambitions to establish a long-term cooperation and partnership with TDC. During the past years we have grown our local organisation to meet the needs of operators such as TDC and this contract clearly demonstrates our local ability and that we understand the needs of our customers’ challenges. We are delighted to have entered this partnership and are looking forward to working closely together with TDC,” says Zha Jun, President of network product line, Huawei.
“In order to strengthen our market position in transmission of data, telephony, broadband, TV and integrated business solutions, we are modernising and continuing the build-out of long-haul metro and access fibre infrastructure. We have selected Huawei as vendor of DWDM solutions based on their high technology solutions, flexibility and competitive total solution,” says Carsten Dilling, Group COO of TDC. “We are pleased to welcome Huawei as a future strategic network partner in our continued effort to build out and maintain networks with the highest quality in a highly cost efficient manner.”
In the scope of the contract, Huawei will deliver end-to-end solutions through its widely deployed NGWDM series, including Access, Metro and Long Haul DWDM. TDC’s pan-European network stretches through northern and western Europe, including cities such as Helsinki, Stockholm, Oslo, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Paris and London. The improved Optical Transportation Network will also enable TDC to meet future demands of network evolution to support business expansion, improving operational performance and meeting cost targets, said TDC.
Huawei will initiate the delivery of the six-year contract in 2011.
