APRIL 30, 2008 -- Railway Telecom Ltd., based in Tblisi, Georgia, has installed BTI Systems' Netstender 2060 to expand its delivery capacity of wholesale services and international connectivity. BTI's gear will enable Railway Telecom, a provider of next-generation telecommunications services founded by Georgian Railway Ltd., to increase network capacity for mobile operators, Internet service providers, and telecom carriers.
"BTI has proven time and again that our needs to meet existing service demands quickly and affordably can be achieved with a CWDM platform delivering up to 160 Gbits/sec over 10 wavelengths," said George Gotoshia, executive director, Railway Telecom. "We're no longer tied to investing in large systems that are not realistic for our current needs. BTI offers the same capabilities on a compact system with the ability to scale out our network as our customers' demands change."
BTI's Netstender 2060 provides Railway Telecom with the ability to deliver multiple 2.5-Gbit/sec services over dedicated wavelengths with the ability to scale up to 10 Gbits/sec with a 16-channel CWDM system. Because of the equipment's low price point compared with traditional DWDM systems, Railway Telecom has quickly generated revenue from the new network infrastructure, BTI asserts. The system serves sites across the Eurasian country of Georgia, including Batumi, Tbilsi, and Azerbeijan.
"Railway Telecom differentiates itself by being the most responsive service provider in a rapidly changing market," said James Worrall, vice president sales EMEA, BTI Systems. "Expanding capacity quickly and affordably now while maintaining the flexibility they need to grow in the future is critical to their success. BTI is honored to be a close partner with Railway Telecom in delivering innovative services to the market."
