The ring structure connects 18 German cities, and two additional cities are to follow in the spring. The route network, which is rented from the GasLINE Telecommunications Company, runs along the lines of 15 German gas companies and comprises of 3,500 kilometers of improved dark fiber.

For transmission, the company uses DWDM, (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing), a technology created by Nortel Dasa Network Systems, that can dramatically increase the conduction capacity of existing glass fiber networks by using 224 different wavelengths.

The first customers to use the high network capacity from LambdaNet include the telephone companies Drillisch and Telia as well as several Internet providers.
