Ericsson and Chunghwa Telecom (CHT) have signed an agreement for the supply of reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexers (ROADMs). This is the first contract awarded by CHT for its five-year ROADM plan.

Ericsson's Marconi MHL 3000 family, proposed in the ROADM solution for Taiwan's largest telecom operator, will significantly boost network speed and performance, enabling up to 80 channels with up to 40Gbit/s capacity per channel. The use of new features, including wavelength selective switching (WSS), advanced automation and network management, will help CHT keep its operational costs at a highly competitive level for the long term, while the future-proof nature of MHL 3000 will enable it to be easily upgraded and expanded as the need for network capacity grows.

According to Tzu-Han Huang, vice president of CHT, ROADM is a crucial part of the multimedia on demand offering and future core network development of the company's Optical Era Project. "We therefore applied a lengthy and thorough technical evaluation and 10-month-long-product-testing process to select a vendor."

"We are pleased our solutions are in line with CHT's expectation," remarks Stefan Johansson, president of Ericsson Taiwan. "We will soon start implementation with our local systems integration partner TECOM. We are committed to making CHT's Optical Era Project a success."
