Neotel appoints Jasco Carrier to install core to edge national fiber network

Feb 01, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Neotel, a converged communications operator, has appointed Jasco Carrier, a provider of networks, broadcasting and co-location solutions, to install a core to edge national fiber network.

The solution, which consists of ADVA's FSP 3000 scalable Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) core network system, FSP 150 Metro Ethernet Connectivity solutions, and a Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer (ROADM), will light up the ZAR2 billion, 5000km national long distance fiber optic network Neotel is building in partnership with MTN and Vodacom.

Jasco will perform a full implementation of the ADVA FSP 3000 and ADVA FSP 150 system. It will plan, design, implement and maintain the solution, and provide support. Together, these solutions facilitate a next generation national long distance network to enable Neotel to deliver high speed telecommunications and Internet services to the South African market, Jasco said.

Dr Angus Hay, GM: Strategic Business Development at Neotel, said: "Selecting the system that will allow us to light up the network and beginning implementation are important milestones. A motivator for selection of Jasco for this project was the strong relationship between Neotel and what was formerly known as Spescom Telecommunications, along with Jasco Telecom's solid reputation for service excellence and telecoms expertise." Paul McKibbin, Divisional MD of Jasco Carrier, said: "This is a highly strategic contract for Jasco Carrier, positioning the company, with its new brand well. It will certainly drive recognition of our competence, expertise and technology access in this market. We see our relationship with Neotel as a partnership, with significant scope for future growth as a supplier and provider of specialised services and support offerings to the network provider.

"As a value added reseller of ADVA equipment, Jasco Carrier has made extensive use of ADVA's solutions for customer implementations. The ADVA FSP 3000 platform is a proven world class WDM transport solution specifically designed for service providers and large enterprises, and we are confident of its performance. The FSP 150 solution works seamlessly with the ROADM module within this core solution to provide multi-directional routing which is critical for Metro Ethernet services. We also have a highly skilled and qualified resource base that is fully capable of implementing and supporting the product."
