Executive Summary

Economic advantages of an "Own" fibre infrastructure but much more the high level of flexibility in technical provision of network services were the trigger for DFN to open these opportunities for DFN's users. First thoughts to develop G-WiN into that direction were already made in summer 2003. The new network infrastructure X-WiN ought to be based on fibre link technology and equipment to operate several multiplexed links on top of the fibre. It was also elaborated that in regions, where this would not be economically feasible, carrier links should complement the design.
