September 7, 2005 Petaluma, CA -- Tricom S.A., a leading carrier in the Dominican Republic, has selected Turin Networks' Traverse Multiservice Transport Switch to modernize their metro core infrastructure.

Tricom executives said they chose Turin's solution based on the company's market leadership position and strong customer references, as well as the multiservice versatility and reliability of the Traverse platform.

"We evaluated a variety of technologies and platforms for upgrading our existing SONET-based optical network to a high-performance metro core that is optimized for next-generation packet services like Ethernet," explains Valeriano Valerio, senior vice president of engineering and operations for Tricom. "We were most impressed with the ability of Turin's Traverse platform to provide any combination of scalable optical transport, wideband DCS, Gigabit Ethernet switching, and SONET-to-SDH gateway flexibility from a single shelf and determined it was clearly the best fit for our needs."

Turin is working with its partner in the Caribbean, TeleNetworks BroadbandISolutions, to provide Tricom with the level of support and service required.

Turin claims its Traverse Multiservice Transport Switch simplifies the transition to a converged optical transport network that efficiently delivers traditional and next-generation network services. The Traverse platform unifies high-capacity Gigabit Ethernet switching with next-generation SONET/SDH cross-connect and transport functionality in a single shelf optimized for metro and interoffice deployments.

Applications that previously required multiple devices and overlay networks can now be supported from one compact and highly flexible system, says the company, enabling service providers to profitably roll out advanced residential, mobile, and business access services.
