BT, its European partners and Nortel are working together to build a new pan-European network to meet the growth of the Interent and the demand for bandwidth-hungry, high-speed data services. Nortel will supply the equipment to BT who will design and install the network which will span Belgium, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Switzerland and the UK. The network will be based on SDH technology, optimised for IP traffic at 160Gbps, with the capacity to increase to 320Gbps in the future. The whole network will be managed by Nortel's Integrated Network Management (INM) platform and will be operational by January 1999.
