The Telekom Austria Group says it has taken the first steps to support 100-Gbps connectivity across its fiber-optic network in Central and Eastern Europe. The first section of the network, from Zagreb to Osijek and Ilok in Croatia, is in operation after successful field trials of the technlogy Alcatel-Lucent provided. Telekom Austria¡¯s subsidiary Vipnet is responsible for the link.

¡°In the last few months we have further optimized the Telekom Austria Group backbone enabling it to provide service capacities of up to 100 Gbps. As a result, native 100G bandwidth services are immediately available with increased speed and scalability,¡± said Stefan Amon, head of the Wholesale Department at the Telekom Austria Group. ¡°By both optimizing network design and upgrading infrastructure the Group is now able to even achieve increased profitability.¡±
