BTI Systems Builds Country Backbone for International Connections at Railway Telecom Ltd.
New CWDM approach to network buildout differentiates service provider based in Tbilisi Georgia
Ottawa - April 30, 2008
BTI Systems, a global supplier of Packet Optical Edge solutions for the delivery of Gigabit services, today announced that Railway Telecom Ltd. has installed BTI’s Netstender 2060 to expand its delivery capacity of wholesale services and international connectivity. BTI’s simple-to-install solution enables Railway Telecom, a provider of next-generation telecommunications services founded by Georgian Railway Ltd., to increase network capacity for mobile operators, Internet Service Providers, and telecom carriers.
“BTI has proven time and again that our needs to meet existing service demands quickly and affordably can be achieved with a CWDM platform delivering up to 160 gigabits per second over ten wavelengths,” said George Gotoshia, Executive Director, Railway Telecom. “We’re no longer tied to investing in large systems that are not realistic for our current needs. BTI offers the same capabilities on a compact system with the ability to scale out our network as our customers’ demands change.”
BTI’s Netstender 2060 provided Railway Telecom with the capability to deliver multiple 2.5G services over dedicated wavelengths with the ability to scale up to 10G capacity with a 16 channel CWDM system. Delivered at a much lower price point than traditional DWDM systems, BTI’s CWDM solutions enabled Railway Telecom to quickly generate revenue from the new network infrastructure. The system serves sites across the Eurasian country of Georgia including Batumi, Tbilsi and Azerbeijan.
“Railway Telecom differentiates itself by being the most responsive service provider in a rapidly changing market,” said James Worrall, Vice President Sales EMEA, BTI Systems. “Expanding capacity quickly and affordably now, while maintaining the flexibility they need to grow in the future is critical to their success. BTI is honored to be a close partner with Railway Telecom in delivering innovative services to the market.”
