Bosnia and Herzegovina's BH Telecom has awarded a contract to Nokia Siemens Networks for a fibre optic network which includes Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology. Nokia Siemens Networks' DWDM network based on the SURPASS hiT 7300 platform will provide BH Telecom with a transport backbone, anticipating the future transmission volumes from the emerging data traffic.
"We are actively working to expand and strengthen our solutions portfolio and value propositions for the Bosnian market. A reliable, high capacity network from a vendor who understands the importance of rapid deployment is the cornerstone on our way to provide capabilities for UMTS and VoIP technology in near future," said Nedzad Residbegovic, General Manager of BH Telecom. "We are confident that this step gives us the possibility to strengthen our number one position in the Bosnia and Herzegovina market and to provide best-of-breed customer solutions."
The deliveries are planned for the second quarter of 2008. Nokia Siemens Networks also will provide BH Telecom with a network management system for next generation optical networks (TMNS), as well as network implementation and training services for BH Telecom's staff.
The network also features the new technology of reconfigurable optical add/drop Multiplexing (ROADM), which helps shorten the implementation time.
