Fujitsu announced that Malaysia WiMAX telecom carrier Packet One Networks Sdn Bhd (P1) has successfully deployed the Flashwave 7500 high-speed optical wavelength division mux as the transmission backbone for its WiMAX network in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur, as well as the adjacent state of Selangor.

P1 began commercial rollout of its P1 W1MAX broadband Internet service in August 2008. Commercial launch began in selected areas in and around Kuala Lumpur. To date, the P1 WiMAX service has expanded into the Klang Valley, Johor, Penang and selected cities and towns in Northern Malaysia, including Kedah, Pahang and Perak, placing the carrier as Malaysia's widest range WiMAX operator.

The Flashwave 7500 system includes a Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM), with technologies designed to deliver efficient high-speed optical transmission while reducing the amount of electrical power consumed.

Fujitsu's high-speed optical wavelength division multiplexing equipment is already widely used as a core part of both fixed-line and wireless networks of major telecom carriers as well as cable TV companies in North America and Japan, where broadband networks are widely deployed. In Asia, the current win follows the August 2008 deployment of the Flashwave 7500 platform in Vietnam. Fujitsu plans to provide the Flashwave 7500 ROADM to support upcoming deployments of next-generation networks in both the APAC and EMEA regions.

Moreover, to respond to growing demands as broadband and network deployments continue to spread, Fujitsu intends to build on its track record and know-how to contribute to the creation of next-generation networks optimized to meet the needs of each country or region worldwide.

The Flashwave 7500 platform features wavelength selective switch technology. The Flashwave 7500 system allows the setting and changing of optical signal paths by remote operation. ROADM technology provides for cross-connecting, or splitting an unmodified optical signal among multiple paths. This allows for vastly lower power consumption and other operating costs compared to conventional equipment, which requires conversion into electrical signals.

The Flashwave 7500 platform supports a wide range of interfaces, including SONET/SDH, Ethernet, and other data interfaces.
