Telstra tests Nortel 40G & 100G DWDM gear

Telstra is claiming two "world records" announcing the successful completion of trials of Nortel's 40Gbps and 100Gbps dense wavelength division multiplexing technology over world record distances in its long haul fibre network, but it is already planning to use Ericsson 40Gbps DWDM gear to carry commercial services between Sydney and Melbourne; gear that Ericsson claims will be upgradeable to 100Gbps as soon as the standard is finalised.
