Norwegian regional operator Ishavslink has deployed gear from Transmode across its fiber network in the Finnmark region, the northern corner of Norway up in the Arctic Circle. Transmode's intelligent-WDM solution allows them a low cost network that can scale. Just how far they need to be able to scale traffic in what is perhaps the most remote corner of Europe is an interesting question.
Ishavslink's network is a new one to me that I am adding to my European maps page. The network covers some 800km from Kirkenes near the Russian border in the east, to Alta in the west. Along the path are some 35,000-40,000 homes.
