TELUS Selects Fujitsu For 100G Inter-City Regional Network Deployments

Fujitsu, a leading provider of business, information technology, and communications solutions, announced today that TELUS has selected Fujitsu to help bring 100G performance to the service provider’s network. By utilizing the Fujitsu 100G solution on the Fujitsu FLASHWAVE® 9500 Packet Optical Networking Platform (Packet ONP), TELUS will be able to meet the bandwidth requirements for high-speed data services, Internet video services, and smart phones, while ensuring a better cost per unit and a lasting technology foundation for their evolving packet-centric regional and national network.

“Our partnership with Fujitsu enables us to continue providing the reach, bandwidth and reliability that our customers require,” said Zouheir Mansourati, Vice President, TELUS Fixed Network Planning & Engineering. “Additionally, by utilizing the FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet ONP for 100G connectivity, TELUS can deliver a high level of service while achieving more efficient regional network utilization, better cost per gigabit of IP traffic, and lower operating cost. Our customers know that TELUS will always support their communications needs with the most advanced and reliable technologies available.”

The Fujitsu 100G solution is designed to meet the demand for bandwidth growth in core networks driven by high speed data services, internet video services, and the wide adoption of bandwidth intensive smart phones. The Fujitsu 100G solution can be cost-effectively deployed to expand network capacity by a factor of 10, eliminating the need for expensive, overlay networks.

“Carrier networks are facing tremendous increases in bandwidth transported,” said Rod Naphan, Senior Vice President of Product and Strategic Planning for Fujitsu Network Communications. “At the same time, these networks are under immense pressure to lower their cost per bit transported. Fujitsu’s 100G technology can help TELUS achieve better network utilization, higher spectral efficiencies and lower overall operating costs.”
