Digiweb selects Transmode, Overture Networks and Next Generation Networks to deploy "Optical plus Ethernet" Dublin network


Transmode, a leading provider of Multi-Reach Optical Solutions and Overture Networks, a leading developer of converged packet access platforms, today announced that leading Irish ISP, Digiweb, has deployed an advanced Ethernet over Optical network within its Dublin Metro network.

The joint Transmode/Overture Networks solution provides Digiweb with a new Ethernet over WDM backbone network and Ethernet over fibre/copper access network to support growing demand for Digiweb’s business to business and consumer ISP services.

The joint solution was provided by local partner and integrator, Next Generation Networks. Utilizing Overture Networks ISG 2200 nodes, Digiweb can now extend their Ethernet based service offerings over off-net E1 connections, in addition to direct 10/100 BaseT solutions. The Transmode TM-Series nodes provide Digiweb with a simple to use, scalable and flexible WDM backbone network.

“The combination of Transmode and Overture is an ideal solution to our network expansion requirements,” said John Quinn, Digiweb’s Head of Strategy. “We have been able to select best of breed products from each vendor with the reassurance of prior interworking testing and local support from Next Generation Networks.”

“This project with Digiweb is exciting on two fronts,” said Björn Andersson, Transmode’s VP Sales. “Digiweb are a great addition to our customer base in Ireland and the project also proves the combined strength of the Transmode/Overture joint offering. In choosing the TM-Series platform, Digiweb have selected the WDM platform with the widest range of functionality available in any WDM system.”

“By deploying the leading Optical Transport and Converged Packet Access solutions, Digiweb have ensured their network is best suited to their current requirements whilst also providing the most future-proof solution available,” said Chip Redden, Overture Networks’ vice president of marketing and product management. “The ISG family enables Digiweb to easily and cost effectively interconnect almost any user, site, and application at speeds ranging from 1 Mbps to 1 Gbps.”

“Next Generation Networks provides Digiweb with a broad range of local support and professional services, thus ensuring that the cost of introducing this new network is minimized and the return on investment is maximized,” said Emmanuel Kennedy, Next Generation Networks’ Sales Director. “In addition to local support, Next Generation Networks provides installation and commissioning, product training, network design and testing consultancy and Network Management integration support to Digiweb.”
