NOVEMBER 25 2009 – Transmode says that Telemach, the primary provider of cable-TV, telephony, and broadband Internet services for Slovenia, has upgraded parts of its national network with Transmode TM-Series WDM equipment.

Telemach, which is owned by Mid Europa Partners group, an investment group operating in Central Europe, and previously part of the UPC group, focuses on providing advanced, high-quality services that bring the digital world to the customers. Its network, which reaches over 4000 km across the country, is based on a combination of optical and coaxial components.

Telemach provides services to a wide range of Slovenian domestic users and businesses. These services include cable-TV (analog and digital), Internet, telephony (SIP), and Multichannel Multipoint Distribution Services (MMDS -- otherwise known as wireless cable) for one-way TV distribution and for full triple-play service.

Telemach is deploying Transmode's TM-Series optical networking platforms. The key new links that will be improved by the Transmode installation include routes into the capital from Novo mesto, Kocevje and Trbovlje, and between eastern cities Murska Sobota and Gornja Radgona.

For the Telemach installation, which has been deployed during 2009, Transmode has implemented 12 optical add/drop multiplexed (OADM) nodes, consisting of two TM-3000 and ten TM-301 systems. Overall, the upgrade is based on single-fiber CWDM; Gigabit Ethernet services are transported using 9x Gigabit Ethernet over 10G and 2x Gigabit Ethernet over 2.5G muxponders. The network is designed to ensure delivery of multiple services to subscribers.

"Our principle requirements in developing this network were to ensure scalability and to have the ongoing flexibility that could meet increasing demands for bandwidth from all types of customers and services," said Joze Mavec, head of the Internet & IT Department, Telemach. "The solution that Transmode has designed for us meets and exceeds our expectations and has done so at acceptable cost."
