it & tel, division of E-Werk Wels Company, and a leading provider of telecommunication services in Austria, was in search of flexible, reliable and cost effective WDM solution for supporting 10G MPLS network.

The task in front of it & tel was to create a multi-location optical network that would support 10G MPLS architecture. The network needed to have an ability to grow from 2 wavelengths to 8 wavelengths in the future without interrupting currently running services. In addition, the proposed solution had to allow addition of new network nodes into the already existing network easily and without costly infrastructure upgrades or service interruption.
Another project requirement was CAPEX. The solution had to have low initial implementation cost as well easy and low cost upgrade scheme.

PacketLight’s Solution
PacketLight Networks fit the requirements of it & tel perfectly. PacketLight’s carrier grade DWDM solution provided it & tel with throughput capacity of 10G in a compact, easily configurable 1U chassis with a possibility of simple upgrade by pluggable XFP’s.
PacketLight Networks equipment was chosen among fierce competition of world’s leading WDM manufacturers for its compact size, ease of use, and low cost.

PacketLight’s PL-1000 based solution provided it & tel with 2 channels of 10G services at each site, expandable to up to 8 channels at each node. Adding services is accomplished by adding appropriate XFP’s, while adding additional sites is possible by simply adding another 1U chassis at desired sites.
By choosing PacketLight’s active WDM solution, it & tel received a fully managed optical transport network. Furthermore, it received redundant equipment with low latency and power consumption. Thus, it & tel decreased its OPEX and maximized the ROI.

“Working with PacketLight networks was truly a pleasure,” said Christoph Ehmayer, Director of Corporate Networks, it & tel. “We were particularly impressed with the installation process and the simplicity of the equipment. PacketLight Networks sent its own engineer to assist us in installation and train our technical staff. All our locations, over 10 sites, took total of 2 days for installation, and afterwards our technical staff was ready to take over the entire network. With other vendors, we always had to go through extensive and complicated training process. In this aspect, Packetlight really saved us time and money.”
