March 15, 2005 Stockholm, Sweden -- Lumentis, a Swedish optical data and telecom platform supplier, and Citylink, a power and communications company, have agreed to work together in a future expansion of broadband services and network capacity throughout Sweden.
According to a press release, Citylink, in providing advanced telephony and computer products to communications companies and public entities throughout Sweden, has constructed one of that country's most modern, functional, reliable networks. The company claims to invest only in assets that create unique value for its customers, while leasing fiber-optic capacity from selected network operators.
"Citylink is a leading supplier of broadband, telephony, and video services and with an exciting expansion plan. What more could you wish from a reference customer?" asks Pär Johanson, director of marketing and sales at Lumentis.
According to the release, using Lumentis equipment, Citylink will gradually introduce data and telephone services into their network, while retaining full flexibility for future growth. The equipment began operating in mid-January 2005.
"Thanks to Lumentis we can easily deploy our broadband services in a more flexible and effective way, at a lower cost than would have been possible had we chosen equipment from any other competitor," remarks Roger Melin, head of network operations at Citylink. "There is also a great possibility that we will use Lumentis as our supplier for our additional expanding broadband networks throughout Sweden."
