French-US equipment manufacturer Alcatel-Lucent has announced the successful deployment of a 100Gbps IP connection between Frankfurt and Luxembourg for P&T Luxembourg. It is hoped that the link will enable P&T to support time-sensitive financial and business transactions. Alcatel-Lucent has also provided P&T with its Converged Backbone Transformation solution, which will help the telco improve the performance and reliability of its new network.
A spokesperson for P&T stressed the importance of Luxembourg to the international finance system and as a ‘major location for data centres, as well as internet and multimedia content hosting and distribution. By introducing 100G transmission capacity into our TERALINK network…we are ensuring that Luxembourg remains a top tier Internet hub.’
