Digiweb Selects BTI Systems to Connect High-Capacity Network

Ireland’s leading independent telecoms operator deploys solutions from BTI Systems to replace core network and extend service reach. Digiweb, Ireland’s leading independent telecom operator, today announced a significant upgrade of its infrastructure, having replaced its Dublin data centre backbone network with packet optical networking solutions from BTI Systems, the networking company that creates high-capacity application-aware service infrastructures for the metro. Digiweb, the largest Irish-owned telecoms operator, provides Carrier Ethernet, MPLS, broadband voice and data services to a network of government, corporate and residential customers throughout Ireland. Driven by the need for a flexible platform to deliver SDH, TDM and Ethernet-based services, Digiweb selected the BTI Systems 7000 Series, as the multi-service packet optical networking platform, along with the 10-port Multiprotocol Muxponder (10-port MXP) and Dual 10G Multiprotocol Transponder (10G DTPR). Together, these combine WDM capacity and regional reach extension with optical service delivery, integrated Carrier Ethernet switching capabilities and service aggregation for various protocols onto high-capacity wavelengths in one platform. With dense fibre coverage throughout Dublin, Digiweb now has dedicated fibre channels and wavelength management on one platform, avoiding the capital expenditure that would have been required to augment its fibre network infrastructure, and ensuring available network bandwidth and fibre capacity. The BTI Systems 7000 Series provides convergence of the service layer with the optical and transport layer, simplifying the network, providing scalable wavelength and Ethernet service capacity and giving Digiweb the foundation to build a robust, cost-effective and agile metro services infrastructure. “We chose BTI Systems because the products are flexible and cost-effective, which are both necessary to help us establish a network that will allow to us...
