Kazakhtelecom launches internet-protocol-based services with Cisco IP NGN

Includes internet access, VPN offerings, Cisco TelePresence virtual meetings and IPTV

By CBR Staff Writer

Kazakhtelecom and Cisco, in collaboration with the AMT Group, have said that JSC Kazakhtelecom has deployed a Cisco internet protocol next-generation network (IP NGN) based on Cisco optical networking and routing technologies. Project design and implementation was carried out by AMT Group, based in Moscow.

Cisco said that the offering enables Kazakhtelecom to utilise existing fiber optic infrastructure in Almaty and to offer internet-based services to business and residential customers. These services include internet access with integrated voice, video and data; virtual private network (VPN) offerings for businesses; Cisco TelePresence virtual meetings and IPTV.

In addition, the new offering also brings savings in capital and operating expenditures resulting from the integration of dense wavelength division-multiplexing (DWDM) optical transmitters into the routers, simplified network management, and reduced rack space and power consumption, the company said.

Earlier in May, Cisco and Kazakhtelecom have extended their cooperation and work on a number of new initiatives. These are designed to help Kazakhtelecom develop integrated services for its private, institutional and enterprise customers, both domestically and internationally.

Alexander Lezgovko, chief technology officer of Kazakhtelecom, said: In the competitive situation at the telecom market, we need to retain existing subscribers and attract new ones. To achieve this, Kazakhtelecom is implementing programs to increase the quality of service, broaden the service portfolio, and establish a process for quickly and professionally addressing potential issues.
