MAY 8, 2007 -- euNetworks (search for euNetworks), owner and operator of one of Europe's highest capacity fiber networks, today announced that it has concluded an agreement with UNET, one of the Netherlands's largest FTTx (search for FTTx) providers. Per the agreement, euNetworks says it will deploy priva¦nex, a highly redundant, high-capacity private fiber ring for the rollout of bandwidth-hungry voice, video, and data services in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and Utrecht.
UNET delivers fiber-based multi-play services throughout the Netherlands, serving residential and business customers alike. UNET says it required a highly scalable, future-proof fiber network, assuring the highest levels of availability and capacity necessary to transport ever-increasing volumes of content.
euNetworks will deliver a private fiber network connecting multiple locations in several ring configurations throughout Amsterdam. Extending UNET's reach further, euNetworks will deliver an inter-city fiber network linking Utrecht to Rotterdam.
"UNET is at the forefront of FTTX rollouts and the deployment of broadband content services such as high speed Internet, VoIP, security, storage, and video," contends UNET's director, Ger Bakker. "EuNetworks, through its ownership of one of Europe's highest capacity networks, was exceptionally positioned to deliver the scalability and redundancy demanded by UNET."
" UNET is one of the Netherland's most dynamic communications companies delivering content rich services," adds Noel Meaney, chief executive officer of euNetworks. "As a provider of all fiber, mission-critical solutions, euNetworks can support UNET in accelerating their rollout of broadband services throughout the Netherlands."
