Orckit Communications Ltd. announced that VSE NET GmbH, a German regional telecommunication service provider, has selected Orckit-Corrigent’s PTN solution and 3M (News - Alert) Services’ first-line support for upgrading its transport networking infrastructure with Packet technologies.
The technical director of VSE NET (News - Alert) said in a release, “After reviewing numerous options, we are confident that the combination of Orckit-Corrigent products with 3M’s services package will provide us with the greatest value and fastest return-on-investment.”
“This implementation will not only help us enhance our current business service offerings, but more importantly, will allow VSE NET to provide high capacity, reliable, and affordable connectivity services to our customers,” he added.
Company sources added that the deal includes Orckit-Corrigent’s CM-4000 PTN metro aggregation switches and CM-11 multi-service access switch besides also including CM-View, the corresponding network management system. This combined solution is based on MPLS and MPLS-TP technologies and is expected to enable VSE NET to grow to 100GE interfaces.
Manfred Brandt, managing director of 3M Services remarked, “We are pleased to follow our recent success with the new VSE NET success and facilitate the delivery and support of Orckit-Corrigent products across Germany. Our team has enjoyed working with Orckit-Corrigent and we look forward to rolling out additional implementations in the region in the near future.”
According to Izhak Tamir, co-founder, chairman of the board and president of Orckit Communication, the selection of the company’s platform by VSE NET highlights the competitive advantage and tangible benefits of the advanced technologies. The established cooperation with 3M service will further enhance and hasten global expansion, Tamir pointed out.
