Italian operator selects Zhone to help with VoIP, high-speed Internet deployment
Zhone Technologies announced a new multiple access line concentrator deployment with Italian regional operator Convergenze.
The deployment will allow Convergenze to increase its network bandwidth and reach lower service delivery cost as it expands its offerings to include VoIP and high speed ADSL2+ Internet access services to its customers in southern Italy,
Convergenze said the deal with Zhone will help it be more competitive in the region, and it will increase the flexability of the services it offers, as well as its system configuration options.
As part of the deal, Convergenze deployed Zhone's multiple access line concentrator as its multi-service access solution for business VoIP and high speed Ethernet-over-copper services for area businesses and residents.
Convergenze said it chose the Zhone solution because Zhone was able to provide multiple services on a single platform, with the option of expanding to Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) down the road.
