November 16, 2005 Jakarta, Indonesia -- Biznet, Indonesia's leading ISP and data center provider, has launched metropolitan services, based on Nortel optical Ethernet technology, to meet corporate customer demand for high-performance, high-bandwidth business applications.

Nortel's Indonesia distributor, PT Harvest Perdana Kompakindo, and its reseller PT Adi Multi Kreasi, deployed the system, which has also been integrated with Biznet's existing IP service offerings.

"Ethernet technology has been widely used in corporate LANs for many years, and Biznet is now taking that technology to the next level by extending Ethernet functionality beyond the LAN to deliver bandwidth-[intensive] applications across metro Jakarta," comments Adi Kusma, president director of Biznet. "The highly secure, robust, and reliable connectivity of Nortel's Metro Ethernet solution provides a perfect fit with the capability of our fiber-optic metro network to deliver last-mile access from 1 Mbit/sec to 1 Gbit/sec at an affordable price."

"Biznet now has a fast, reliable, and efficient technology to break the bandwidth bottleneck between customer LANs and metropolitan optical Ethernet," adds Terence Yap, managing director of Nortel's Indonesia operations. "These next-generation Ethernet-based services will become an important driver in the growth of Biznet's comprehensive network services portfolio."

Biznet's news services include its MetroNET bundled local loop and Internet access service at speeds up to 2 Mbit/sec, and its MetroWAN local loop service for interconnecting multiple locations across Jakarta's main business district. The services use Nortel's Ethernet Routing Switch 8600 to provide guaranteed bandwidth service levels, as well as secure services with customer demarcation on a shared uplink, and QoS for triple-play applications such as voice, video, and data.

Nortel says its Ethernet Routing Switch 8600 delivers high-density, high-performance Layer 2-7 switching, routing, and traffic classification.
