Marconi Wins £20m Contract For Coventry

Marconi has won a £20 million order for optical fibre equipment for Denmark, which will be built at its Coventry base.

A new contract covering a three-year period has been signed with Tele Danmark to update the telecoms operators’ network.

The new deal has built on a previous successful contract supplying the Danish firm with the Synchronous Digital Hierarchy technology. SDH was developed in Coventry and is built at the New Century Park site.

SDH is a system for digitally transmitting voice, video and data over optical fibre. It can automatically repair breaks in information being transmitted, and avoid telephone or internet calls being broken or lost.

Peter Brown, Marconi’s president for Europe, Middle East, Africa and Australasia, who is based in Coventry, said:

“This contract provides further proof that Marconi is the world leader overall in SDH technology.

“We have had several major successes within optical networking during the past three months.

“We have won an important deal with BT to build Europe’s most advances all-optical network, as well as orders from telecom Italia, Fibernet of Germany, Telford of the Netherlands and the Belgian national telecoms operator, Belgacom.”
