According to Australia’s IT News, Telstra has announced that it has spent AUD20 million (USD12.3 million) on upgrades to its network infrastructure in the western part of the country. The investment is understood to have been spent on dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) systems on the fibre routes, with the telco claiming that the new hardware will ‘increase the capability and efficiency of Telstra’s fibre-optic networks’; each DWDM transmission system reportedly allows for expansion of up to 40 channels of 10Gbps of information and is capable of supporting high bandwidth customer capacity including Gigabit Ethernet (GE) services.
