The installation of the Transmode TM-Series equipment was made as direct result of a need for higher bandwidth initially across the fiber network connecting San Francisco with San Jose. The TM-Series was selected as it offered a low initial cost point, while still providing the modularity and high capacity for future expansions.
The TM-Series is a flexible and scalable CWDM / DWDM platform supporting multi-protocol Transponders and Muxponders. Using Intelligent WDM (iWDM) technology, Layer 2 functionality and flexibility, the TM-Series provides network operators and enterprises with a true plug-and-play experience, greatly reducing network and service turn up times, cost and complexity. The initial deployment has already been expanded with additional wavelengths.
Mr. Rubin noted, ”The installation of Transmode’s TM Series equipment enables us to meet the bandwidth needs of our customers in our increasingly busy San Francisco to San Jose connection. The fact that the Transmode’s system allow us to expand in a modular way was one of the major factors in our choice of this supplier.”
Johan Hammarstrom, Regional Sales Director North America of Transmode added, ”Transmode is pleased to be the key supplier and adviser for Layer 42’s expansion in the Californian marketplace. This growth is validation of both Layer 42’s business model and of Transmode as their optical networking supplier. With our dedicated North American team and our characteristic consultative sales approach we are in a very strong position to meet the needs of growing US and Canadian communications companies.”
