Nortel networking technology being deployed in Australia
Silk Telecom, a telecommunications provider formed from the telecom interests of three Australian electricity distribution companies, is building an advanced optical network in Australia using high-capacity networking technology form Nortel Networks. The network will support high-speed services for Silk’s enterprise customers in regional Victoria and South Australia. The Nortel common photonic layer platform will provide the capacity for Ethernet, Internet and voice, and will ensure Silk has the additional bandwidth capacity to support new services down the road. "With its CPL platform, Nortel has provided us with the flexibility to do this cost-effectively, enabling us to balance the cost of transmission with the bandwidth we need for our regional customers," said Simon Perkins, CEO of Silk Telecom in a news release.
