Cisco to help Digiweb deliver real-time multi-media and digital IP TV

Leading Irish ISP Delivers Triple-Play Broadband Services with Cisco Internet Protocol Next Generation Network Cisco to help Digiweb deliver real-time multi-media and digital IP TV DUBLIN, Ireland, October 25, 2005 – Cisco Systems announced today that Digiweb Ltd ( www.digiweb.ie ), one of Ireland’s largest privately-owned Internet Service Providers (ISP), will offer 80 percent of the population converged data, voice and video (“triple-play”) services using a country-wide network built on Cisco Systems Internet Protocol Next Generation Network (IP NGN) technology. The Cisco IP Multiprotocol Label Switching (IP/MPLS) backbone will provide the high-capacity, intelligent transport required by Digiweb to deliver digital video and multi-media services over IP over its wireless “last mile” access network to homes and businesses. This will be the first wireless broadband network of this kind in Ireland to intelligently support digital IP television (IPTV) and full multi-media services direct to the major population centres in Ireland.
