XO Communications selects Nokia Siemens Networks to expand optical network capacity.
As part of a multi-year agreement, Nokia Siemens Networks will supply its hiT 7300 DWDM 40 Gbps platform to provide a transport system. The platform’s high degree of modularity will enable XO Communications to respond timely to changes in traffic demand. Also, the hiT 7300 is based on a common hardware platform, which saves staff training time and OPEX, and reduces the number of spare parts needed to be stocked.
In addition to the hiT 7300, Nokia Siemens Networks will supply its leading Transport Network Management System (TNMS) to optimize the network’s operations through centralized control and supervision. The agreement also includes Nokia Siemens Networks’ professional services for network implementation and care.
