OCTOBER 10, 2007 -- Pirelli Broadband Solutions, the broadband access and photonics company within the Pirelli Group (search for Pirelli), and Intracom Telecom will deploy Pirelli's City8 CWDM Multiservice Platform in Hellas Online's transport network in Athens, Salonika, and rural areas throughout Greece.
"With Pirelli we found not only a high-performance metro access platform but also a solutions partner," said Charalampos Papanastasiou, wireline systems manager of Intracom Telecom. "The Pirelli system is very flexible and allows our customers to add further CWDM capacity and DWDM wavelengths when they need it."
Pirelli's CWDM Metro Access System is a carrier-class platform designed to provide high-bandwidth, managed services over a single fiber pair. The system is designed to enable easy upgrade in-field to Pirelli's City+ CWDM and DWDM Multiservice Platform, which supports six CWDM wavelengths, each operating at 2.5 Gbits/sec, and 16 DWDM wavelengths, each operating at 2.5 or 10 Gbits/sec, for a total capacity of 175 Gbits/sec.
"With the announcements of triple-play services and the arrival of faster broadband access technologies such as VDSL2 and FTTx, we are seeing a growing interest for our CWDM/DWDM Multiservice platform," said Pierluigi Franco, senior vice president, Marketing of Photonics Products for Pirelli Broadband Solutions. "Partnering with solutions providers like Intracom Telecom further validates our value proposition."
