MADRID, Spain -- Jazztel, a leading Spanish competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC), is deploying hundreds of intelligent converters from RAD Data Communications to enable it to connect its IP DSLAMs over existing SDH infrastructure throughout the country.

RAD’s RIC-155GE intelligent converters will enable Jazztel to transport IP-based services over an existing SDH backbone while reserving the option to migrate to a packet switchedbackbone in the future. The savings that will accrue will allow Jazztel to invest in marketing the IP services that it will be able to provide its customers over SDH that will, in turn, expedite payback and new revenue generation.

“Jazztel had been offering DSL services over an ATM backbone but is now moving to IP DSLAMs in response to future market trends,” notes Jose Aronson, Regional Sales Manager for Iberia at RAD Data Communications. “The RIC-155GE bridges the gap between technologies, and, therefore, will make Jazztel’s migration to Next Generation PSNs smooth and affordable.” Within one year Jazztel is expected to connect approximately 300 links with the RIC-155GE.
