Optical networking specialist Optelian is accompanying the Honourable Ed Fast, Canada’s Minister of International Trade and Minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway on a trade mission to Southeast Asia. In conjunction with this trade mission, Optelian is pleased to announce that Myanmar Post and Telegraph (MPT) is utilizing Optelian’s LightGAIN Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) systems for its cellular backhaul and backbone network. MPT is installing a state-of-the-art wireless infrastructure throughout the country with support and installation services from Myanmar World Distribution.

“MPT chose Optelian’s DWDM system for their backhaul network as it is the best fit for their operational requirements,” comments Josephine Su, Director of Myanmar World Distribution. “Their next-generation transport network requires a highly scalable solution with support for Ethernet services. The flexible LightGAIN system architecture, with its integrated Ethernet aggregation functionality and its quality and reliability, addresses the demands of MPT’s network growth and challenging environmental conditions.”

“We are proud to have this opportunity to participate in Myanmar’s telecom infrastructure development and to contribute to its economic development,” says Mike Perry, President of Optelian. “To support rapid growth, smart mobile devices, and high bandwidth applications, we have worked with Myanmar World Distribution to create a scalable design, using state-of-the-art network technologies, to future-proof the MPT network.”

Minister Ed Fast said, “Emerging from decades of isolation, this country is poised to accelerate its economic growth and I’m pleased that Canadian technology will play a role in raising the standard of living of the Burmese people as economic and democratic reforms go hand-in-hand.”
