Wind is behind Ericsson

22 May 2007

Italy’s largest alternative telco Wind has selected Ericsson to expand its optical network. The Swedish vendor will be providing metro and core optical transport technology and will also be acting as systems integrator to support the telco’s fixed IP broadband access. The contract calls for the supply of a Dense Wavelength-division Multiplexing (DWDM) solution to increase transmission capacity of 1600km of existing fibre cables and Broadband Remote Access server (BRAs) technology to improve fixed broadband access performance.
