MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - Mar 16, 2015) - Padtec, a global manufacturer and solutions provider of turnkey optical solutions, announces today that UFINET, a carrier of carriers, has expanded its network capability with the deployment of Padtec Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) equipment.

Padtec has deployed more than 13,000 km of DWDM network to UFINET, which broadens its range of services and the expansion of its business. The network has been designed with plenty of protection mechanisms and with the potential for future expansion by adding more channels. Furthermore, new links are in the design phase and should be illuminated in the coming months to enlarge high capacity footprint.
