NewTelco is offering its service provider customers new Ethernet connectivity services based on Ciena’s
5305 Service Aggregation Switches. The deployment is live in Frankfurt – the largest Ethernet exchange centre in Europe – and will be followed by an expansion program covering London, Amsterdam, Zurich, Vienna, Stockholm and Kiev, as well as New York.
NewTelco is a colocation specialist and hardware distributor that serves a wide range of international service providers. Ciena’s Carrier Ethernet Solutions will replace NewTelco’s current exchange network and enable it to offer highly reliable, transparent and flexible connectivity services to carrier customers while supporting higher service level agreements (SLAs).
Ciena’s solution offers a secure virtual Ethernet switch architecture that allows NewTelco to effectively support all of its carrier customers on a single platform. By supporting a wide range of services on a single platform, NewTelco can minimise the number of interfaces required by customers. Moreover, with Ciena’s highly scalable, flexible and granular solution, NewTelco can cost-effectively meet customers’ evolving requirements, reducing CAPEX and OPEX and enabling it to better compete in the carrier exchange business.
“NewTelco’s international customers count on us for highly reliable, flexible and cost-efficient connectivity in the key exchange centre in Europe (Frankfurt am Main). Ciena’s technology is powering NewTelco’s position in the Ethernet Exchange industry by enabling us to tailor services to the specific requirements of each carrier customer and support higher, verifiable SLAs.” - Matthias Hartmann, Managing Director at NewTelco
