Dial Telecom progresses backbone network expansion

19 Feb 2015

Prague-based Dial Telecom (includes Volny) says that in January this year, it successfully completed the expansion of the firm’s most heavily used Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) link in Europe – the Frankfurt-Cesky Tesin route to Poland, which now includes a spur running via Bialsko Biala to Krakow. Dial Telecom, a nationwide telecoms operator providing a portfolio of voice, data, internet and hosting services through its own unified optical network, says the extended section with coherent detection ‘allows signals at the speed of up to 100Gbps to span a distance of 1,360km between Krakow and Frankfurt with latency lower than eight milliseconds. The route also enables the termination of DWDM lambdas in Prague.’ As part of the plan, Dial Telecom network Ethernet/IP/MPLS connection points, for the provision of packet-oriented services, were installed along with the DWDM route in Bialsko Biala and Krakow.
