MANSFIELD, Mass. & AMSTERDAM --(Business Wire)--

Telco Systems, a BATM company (LSE: BVC,TASE: BATM) and developer of CE2.0 compliant multi-service Carrier Ethernet access, MPLS and SDN solutions, announced today that WEMACOM Telecommunication GmbH, a German major regional utility and city carrier and subsidiary of WEMAG AG, has chosen Telco Systems' (News - Alert) end-to-end MPLS-based solutions for its multi-service fiber network deployments.

Telco Systems joined forces with ITM, its certified partner and leading integrator of telecommunication networks, to provide WEMACOM Telecommunication GmbH with a complete networking solution. ITM has been providing advanced telecommunications, IP technologies, and system integration solutions in Germany and Austria to major telecom operators & service providers for over 25 years.

WEMACOM GmbH's network initially supported the power grid of its mother company, becoming a regional and city carrier in 1999. WEMACOM offers services in the northeastern part of Germany, where they offer leased line services, DSL, wireless and phone services. Using Telco Systems' solution, the company is planning to offer new innovative services, like cloud-based services, smart grid backhaul services for consumers, enterprise dedicated services and business services, as well as offering 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" said Mr. Horst Richter, CEO from WEMACOM Telecommunication GmbH.

Telco Systems offers Carrier Ethernet and MPLS-based T-Marc demarcation and T-Metro aggregation solutions designed to create end-to-end Carrier Ethernet and MPLS managed, service-enable networks that are more intelligent, self-healing and cost effective than typical Ethernet-only based offerings. By helping carriers differentiate their services through flexible bandwidth management and service assurance via robust integrated OAM tools, the company's solutions enable operators to rapidly deploy new business services with superior user experience and assured SLA. End-to-end Ethernet/MPLS solutions combined with the company's powerful service management system, EdgeGenie lowers overall OPEX (News - Alert) and CAPEX to achieve a superior total cost of ownership by accelerating network planning, deployment, and ongoing management of new services.

"City carriers and utilities, as well as larger service providers, in Europe need end-to-end scalable, resilient and cost effective networks to succeed. Telco Systems' MPLS solutions combined with ITM expertise offers providers in the region tools needed to support the explosive bandwidth and services growth of their customer base" said Mr. Wolfgang Matschke, VP Sales from ITM. "Telco Systems' end-to-end MPLS to the edge solution, that includes demarcation, aggregation and EdgeGenie service management solutions, offers service providers unique solutions while allowing them to rapidly deliver new managed services with guaranteed SLA, while future-proofing their network. "

"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. 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" said Francois Tournesac, VP Sales and Services EMEA for Telco Systems.
