Citynet deploys MRV optical transport systems in Austria
Citynet, a regional carrier network in Austria and a group within Hall AG, has turned to longtime optical transport systems partner MRV Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRVC) for additional equipment to extend it fiber-optic network capabilities. In particular, Citynet is installing MRV's flagship OptiDriver platform.
Citynet serves large enterprises, residential customers, and several mountain ski resorts and lift infrastructure in the Inn Valley region of Austria. It offers DSL, dedicated fiber, VPN, IPTV, and cloud services. MRV has supplied optical and packet transport technology to Citynet for more than 10 years. These deployments include the company's OptiSwitch as customer premises equipment (CPE), aggregation, and core platforms, as well as MRV's Fiber Driver and OptiDriver systems for business and enterprise services.
The new OptiDriver deployments focus on the ability to deliver more high-capacity services to Citynet's enterprise customers as well as expand its service footprint to more regions via leased fiber-optic network infrastructure.
"Ultimately, we chose MRV because of the reliability we have experienced over the years," states Manuel Kofler, head of IT Department for Hall AG. "The evolving mix of features, and ease of operations, are critical components to ensure ubiquitous access and maximum performance for our customers. DWDM and packet solutions being provided by a single vendor helps streamline our products and simplifies the processes."
