hellas online selects Cisco as equipment supplier

Deploys the Cisco ONS15454 multiservice transport platform in the core and aggregation networks

By CBR Staff Writer

Greece-based fixed-line telecommunications services provider hellas online has selected Cisco as the equipment supplier for a nationwide optical transport network.

The network, which has been designed and implemented by Intracom Telecom, employs Cisco optical networking and routing technologies over an IP next-generation network architecture.

hellas online, part of the Intracom Holdings Group, has deployed the Cisco ONS15454 multiservice transport platform in the core and aggregation networks, supporting 40Gb wavelengths, which according to the Cisco will offer the flexibility to make changes and expansions to the topology of the network.

The Cisco ethernet over dense wavelength-division multiplexing Xponder line card technology used by hellas online in the DSL aggregation network helps to preserve scarce wavelength resources, by allowing multiple DSL access sites to be connected to the IP core network using a single wavelength.

Paolo Campoli, senior director for sales business development at Cisco, said: Cisco’s integrated IP and optical solution is helping hellas online to simplify and de-layer the network design, which is the best way to reduce the production cost of bandwidth and secure a competitive cost base.

With the close collaboration of the hellas online, Intracom Telecom and Cisco teams, we have been able to deliver a world-class broadband infrastructure that will benefit consumers and businesses throughout Greece for many years to come.
