WEMACOM Telecommunication GmbH, a German major regional utility and city carrier and subsidiary of WEMAG AG, has chosen MPLS-based platforms from Telco Systems, a BATM company (LSE: BVC,TASE: BATM), for multi-service fiber-optic network deployments.

Telco Systems says it will collaborate with local partner and network integrator ITM on the network roll out.

WEMACOM GmbH became a city carrier in 1999 after previously providing network services for its parent’s power grid. WEMACOM offers services in the northeastern part of Germany that include leased-line, DSL, wireless, and phone. The new network, based on Telco Systems’ MPLS-based T-Marc demarcation and T-Metro aggregation platforms, will enable the carrier to expand its offerings to include cloud-based services, smart grid backhaul services for consumers, enterprise dedicated services and business services, as well as services to other providers.

“WEMACOM Telecommunication GmbH chose Telco Systems and ITM over many other major vendors as its MPLS-to-the-edge solution allowed us to build a true mesh network, and a resilient, flexible, and scalable fiber-based solution which will support WEMACOM’s entire range of enterprise services including E-Line, E-LAN, and E-Tree, and will allow further growth of the customer base,” explained Horst Richter, CEO at WEMACOM.

“WEMACOM is leading the European evolution towards multi-service backhaul access networks. Their network is an example of how using MPLS at the edge and access, combined with end-to-end service management, enables regional providers to build a differentiated solution that allows them to grow and offer new innovative services,” said Francois Tournesac, vice president of sales and services EMEA for Telco Systems. “This solution, combined with ITM’s system integration expertise, helps make WEMACOM’s offerings service-centric, and allows them to present their customers with new levels of capacity, scalability and, reliability.”
