Neue Data Transport Platform CLS

Data transport platform upgrade for the CLS product

Continuously increasing data usage leads to growing bandwidth and capacity requirements in these networks. Not only do increasing data volumes need to be managed, but the demand for reliable transmission networks and data flow is also increasing accordingly.

Bandwidths of between 1G and 100G have become the rule rather than an exception. Provider networks, data centres and storage area networks in particular call for corresponding capacity.


The new data transport platform uses the newest DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) technology as well as ROADM (reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer) and telemetry, which make effective fault detection as well as shorter fault repairs and service delivery times possible. In this way you can satisfy the high demands of your customers both today and in future.



What does this mean for active CLS lines?


  • Upon introduction, all active CLS services will be transferred to the new platform from 2024 until the end of 2025 at the latest. 


  • The Ethernet bandwidth from 2 Mbit/s to 100 Mbit/s and all SDH bandwidths will be removed from the CLS offering and can no longer be ordered from 1 January 2023 onwards.



  • The operation of active lines is ensured until the end of 2025. They will be migrated to the new platform if technically possible. 


  • As the bandwidth portfolio will only include 1 Gbit/s to 100 Gbit/s, you will also benefit from reduced complexity.



We will inform you about the precise migration planning and processes at a later date. In the meantime, if you have any questions, you can of course get in touch with us whenever you like.
