BUTZBACH, Germany -- Riedel Networks, provider of a high-performance global communication service platform designed for multinational corporations and broadcasters, today announced a new agreement with Viatel that will enable the upgrade and expansion of Riedel Networks' European MPLS network. Viatel provides high-capacity services to strategic point-of-presence (POP) locations across Europe. Representing a continuation of the two companies' successful partnership, this latest agreement enables Riedel Networks' further expansion into Amsterdam.

"Viatel is an important network partner for Riedel Networks, and we are very happy with the company's reliable performance in the delivery and operation of network services," said Michael Martens, managing director at Riedel Networks. "It is valuable to us that Viatel owns the infrastructure and maintains full end-to-end control, and this fact made the decision to expand further with this partner an easy choice."

Riedel Networks uses Viatel infrastructure as the basis for the services it delivers to its own customer base. The Viatel advanced fiber optic backbone network connects eight countries, 35 cities, and more than 120 European data centers, and it has metro fiber reach into the major carrier houses, data centers, and main Internet exchanges. With data centers in Dublin, London, Amsterdam, Paris, and Brussels, Viatel owns more than 8,500 km of fiber network infrastructure, which it has equipped with high-capacity optical DWDM technology and multi-service platforms.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial and often most challenging is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company Tribold from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
