P&T Luxembourg Does 100G With AlcaLu

PARIS -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext and NYSE: ALU) and P&TLuxembourg, the nation’s leading telecommunications service provider, have launched one of the fastest data networks in Europe. The two companies established a superfast 100G (gigabit per second) IP connection between Frankfurt and Luxembourg, which provides very high-bandwidth, low latency, secure and reliable data services to the financial sector, European institutions and organizations as well as to all businesses and consumers throughout the country.

By supporting more robust, high-capacity links with other major business capitals, the enhanced and expanded network will help Luxembourg’s economy to secure its position as one of the leading data centre locations in Europe. It also will enable P&TLuxembourg to better support a wide variety of extremely time sensitive financial and business transactions and create interconnections between different IP networks, known as IP Peering, making it a more attractive location for e-commerce and content companies.

Carlo Richartz, senior engineer at P&T’s Telecom Division, said: “Luxembourg has today an important role in the international financial system. In addition, Luxembourg is evolving more and more as an essential player in the IT world and has become a major location for data centres, as well as Internet and multimedia content hosting and distribution. By introducing 100G transmission capacity into our TERALINK network – which already connects much of Western Europe – we are ensuring that Luxembourg remains a top tier Internet hub for all kinds of economic activity throughout Europe.”
