Transmode, a global supplier of packet-optical networking solutions, today announced that FNE-Finland Oy will expand its network with Transmode's Metro 100G solution.

FNE-Finland Oy is a leading alternative backbone capacity provider founded by a group of local telecommunications companies to provide a common network for the group across Finland. It has since grown and now sells capacity to a broad range of customers. The new 100G deployments were designed to handle the increased capacity needed specifically for a datacenter customer but also allow multiple new services to be offered to a range of customers.

Transmode was already an existing infrastructure vendor for FNE-Finland's network and the Metro 100G solution was the most economical and technically the most reliable option for FNE-Finland Oy. The new capacity will be installed during Q1 2015 and will use Transmode's new Metro/Regional 100G solution based on all-pluggable optics and support the latest coherent CFP technology.

Timo Hopponen FNE-Finland's Technical Director said, "We are delighted to be offering 100G capacity and wholesale services to our customers across the whole of our Finland network. The new equipment fits easily into our existing sub-racks, minimizing both the footprint and power usage. But mainly the Transmode solution allows FNE to quickly scale traffic at a low cost and minimizes our ongoing operational costs."

Johan Grönlund, Transmode's Vice President Sales Nordics, added, "This on-going deployment with FNE-Finland Oy demonstrates how our customers can move quickly to a 100G solution without disruption and at a much lower cost than other options. Using the Transmode 100G solution, FNE is now expanding the capabilities of its network and creating high capacity solutions for its customers. Across the world, 100G is now making more sense for many customers both technically and economically in their metro and regional networks."
