Teledata Networks wins $12.5M multiservice access network project

Teledata Networks, a leading global provider of innovative Multiservice Access solutions for NGN (Next Generation Networks), has been awarded a $12.5M project from ICE, Costa Rica’s National Electricity and Telecommunications company. The contract covers the supply of BroadAccess multiservice access systems supporting a variety of services, from TDM to IP.

Thursday, April 17, 2008

The system’s wide range of network technologies saves the operator costly infrastructure, as it essentially comprises several systems in one. The systems will be installed all over Costa Rica, and will deliver services to both business and residential areas.
Costa Rica is currently undergoing a period of heavy investments in broadband and optical infrastructure, and heading towards NGN and the deployment of softswitches. Teledata Networks fits in perfectly with this trend, as its forte is ensuring seamless migration between TDM and IP technologies, with advanced features such as VoIP and Triple Play.
