VTLWaveNet and Huawei announce 100G network upgrade

Today VTLWaveNet, part of the Viatel Group, and Huawei, a leading global
information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider,
announce the completion of phase one of its 100G network upgrade in
Europe. The WDM platform is now fully operational for 10G, 40G and 100G
services between London and Paris.

Key points-of-presence located in central London and Paris have been
equipped with leading Huawei 100G Soft-decision Forward Error Correction
(SD FEC) technology to facilitate 100G wavelength services.

The upgrade provides a substantial increase in VTLWaveNet¹s network
capacity along a heavily populated route. The use of electronic dispersion
compensation technology means that VTLWaveNet customers will also benefit
from a significant reduction in latency on the London to Paris link. With
an operational network already in place, customers will also benefit from
reduced lead times on services.

Businesses with large bandwidth requirements can take advantage of the
100G service to employ a more efficient way of managing traffic through a
single handoff by Huawei¹s advanced optical transport network (OTN) switch

Lucy Woods, CEO at Viatel states: ³The upgrade of this part of our network
allows us to serve new and existing customers on what has become a key
route and with VTLWaveNet¹s own sub-sea cable into France, we offer a
diverse route to many other operators which avoids the Channel Tunnel.²

Jack Wang, president of Huawei’s transport product line, said:  ³We are
delighted to partner with VTLWaveNet to build this highly advanced WDM
network. Huawei¹s soft decision technology has a distinct advantage in the
international long distance backbone interconnection, providing a more
reliable and better quality service for VTLWaveNet customers.²
