BTI Systems says it will supply packet optical network equipment to the TelEm Group, the government-owned incumbent telecom provider on the Dutch Caribbean Island of St. Maarten. TelEm will use the equipment in the network backbone for its 3G mobile service expansion and NGN all-IP network.

The TelEm Group provides fixed, wireless, and data services for business and residential customers throughout the island. The new network backbone will leverage the BTI 7000 Series to provide the core of the network, alongside the BTI 700 Series Ethernet Access Devices that work as the network on-ramps at 38 access points and 22 cell towers for end-to-end packet optical transport.

In addition to wireless backhaul, the network also will deliver Ethernet business services to enterprises and institutions across the island, leveraging BTI Systems MEF-certified platforms and proNX Management Suite.

"As the island's largest telecom provider, we look forward to utilizing the significant performance and capabilities of our advanced fiber-optic network," said Eldert Louisa, CTO of the TelEm Group. "BTI Systems' provides a simplified and converged approach that will make it easier to rapidly provision services for our valuable customers and preserve our status as the provider of choice."
