Nokia has signed a frame agreement with Eurofiber Group, for a multi-country DWDM roll out, datacenter switching and multiple other areas to increase Eurofiber Open Network footprint.

The agreement, covers all Eurofiber affiliates. Within Eurofiber France, first optical networks are already under deployment in the south and north of the country. Next to France, Nokia is also deploying a DWDM city network in Germany for the Berlin based joint venture Vattenfall-Eurofiber. In Belgium, both companies agreed to renew the nationwide DWDM network. The Eurofiber Cloud Infra unit selected SR Linux from Nokia as their switching platform. Nokia says these networks will further enhance and expand the more than 60,000 km of the existing Eurofiber fibre infrastructure.

Jan van Tetering, senior vice president Europe at Nokia (pictured right), said, “Nokia is proud to add Eurofiber as a customer. We are determined to serve Eurofiber Group and its affiliates with our strong portfolio and presence in the four countries where they operate and help them expand their Open Networks’ footprint. This frame agreement is a solid foundation for our joint growth business ambition in Europe, sharing the same values to operate in an ethical, sustainable and secure way.”

Eric Kuisch, COO Eurofiber Group, said, “Eurofiber has an ambitious growth agenda in Western Europe. A fully integrated high capacity DWDM network, and future-proof, highly secure datacenter equipment are main technological enablers to realize these ambitions. We are looking forward to partner with Nokia in providing our customers with the highest quality available.”
