Siemens Communications and Juniper Networks will set up a multiservice backbone network based on Next Generation IP technology with MPLS (Multi Protocol Label Switching) for AlgÃ©rie TÃ©lÃ©com (AT).
AT is deploying the Surpass Perfect Voice solution and the NetManager network management system from Siemens and Juniper Networks M- and T-series routing platforms to expand its network capacity. In this way, AT can converge its fixed and mobile network assets and support the rollout of a countrywide broadband access network. The new network infrastructure will enable AT to offer advanced broadband services such as voice over IP (VoIP) as well as telemedicine applications and narrowband voice services on a countrywide basis.
AlgÃ©rie TÃ©lÃ©com will be able to interconnect its new high-performance IP/MPLS backbone with its existing network, protecting previous investments. With the additional network capacity, AT also intends to function as a “carriers’ carrier”, reselling excess capacity. Siemens will implement the new infrastructure as a turnkey solution in Algeria. The contract covers network maintenance and training of specialist staff at AT.
Siemens provides Surpass Perfect Voice solution in ATâ€™s new backbone network, a Next Generation network platform. Surpass Perfect Voice includes the IP Trunking application designed to reduce the total cost of ownership through network simplification. IP trunking consolidates the network from a large number of trunk exchanges to a small number of Surpass hiE 9200 softswitches controlling Surpass hiG Trunk Gateways.
The Juniper Networks T-series provides ATâ€™s network core with a flexible and highly scalable routing platform. The Juniper Networks M-series multiservice edge routing platform combines IP/MPLS capabilities with security and service richness.
Both routing platforms operate within the principles of RESIP (RESilient IP), a joint solutions program driven by Siemens and Juniper Networks for the delivery of reliable, secure, quality-assured Next Generation networks.
