SWT trilan GmbH Installs Digital Communication Network based on Telco Systems’ Carrier Ethernet Solutions

Regional customers offered made-to-measure network services

MANSFIELD, MA and TRIER, GERMANY, February 19th, 2014 – Telco Systems, a BATM company (LSE: BVC, TASE: BATM) and a leading provider of CE 2.0 multi-service Carrier Ethernet and MPLS edge access solutions for mobile backhaul, business Ethernet services and cloud networking, today announced that SWT trilan GmbH, a subsidiary of the municipal utility company in Trier, Germany, selected Telco Systems' Carrier Ethernet and 10G Ethernet solutions, along with the EdgeGenie service management system, to expand the SWT trilan network and allow them to offer its regional customers with made-to-measure network services.

Public utility companies continue to broaden their service offerings by including digital communication services. The digital net is increasingly becoming the focus of attention of public utilities that normally supply water, electricity and gas. SWT trilan GmbH has been offering its clients network access since 2001. Their newly installed infrastructure is based on a Carrier Ethernet 2.0 solution and extends their offering with individual scalable bandwidth and services.

The expanded networks of SWT trilan GmbH are based on Telco Systems’ solutions towards a 10 Gigabit Ethernet backbone for voice and data. In this way, customers can connect to the internet with point-to-point connections established between different locations or computer centers with high levels of flexibility and accessibility. The prerequisites for regional service providers include stability of the infrastructure, unlimited availability, future-proof technology and uncomplicated customer management to ensure a profitable and dependable digital service business – Telco Systems’ devices not only meet, but exceed these requirements. With the implementation of Carrier Ethernet and Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS), SWT trilan has deployed a local and autonomous solution for global services that integrates simple operation, bandwidth flexibility and modern reliable technology.

The infrastructure was made available through the cooperation with Pan Dacom Direct Gmbh using Telco Systems’ devices. Customer and connection management is provided for through Telco Systems’ EdgeGenie service management system. EdgeGenie, which allows for flexible bandwidth management and service assurance via robust integrated OAM tools, enables simple installation and transparent control of voice, data and internet services while optimizing the available network capacity. Thus, preset or variable bandwidths can be utilized efficiently while guaranteeing profitability. Simulation and runtime tools also assist in making the right decisions and supporting the service optimization and price calculation. The network provided by Trier's supply company is already prepared for the new SDN technology, which allows for even more flexibility towards individual customer services. 

"It was essential for us, as network providers, to have a network that allows for automated service provisioning", says Lothar Maximini, Director of Network Services at SWT trilan GmbH.  "By using flexible bandwidths, we can offer our customers with made-to-measure services at affordable prices."

"The trend of providing network services by local supply companies, as either an alternative to or adjacent to traditional providers, is becoming more apparent worldwide", says Francois Tournesac, VP of Sales and Business Development for Telco Systems. "We support this development through a large range of network appliances, which enable setting up infrastructures according to the required capacity locally, without compromising performance, functionality or future security. With the deployment of Carrier Ethernet 2.0, SDN and Telco Systems’ EdgeGenie management system, the municipal utility in Trier is on the safe side and well prepared for all future developments."

"The foundation for the new network and the option to create new businesses began several years ago with the installation of our WDM-System SPEED-OTS-5000", explains Markus Förster, Head of Product Management at Pan Dacom Direkt. "We are proud of our long lasting partnership and are looking forward to our future cooperation. This involves planning, installation, services and training.”
