MILAN, Italy -- Pirelli Broadband Solutions, the broadband access and photonics company within the Pirelli Group, today announced that it has entered into a commercial agreement and technology partnership with OneAccess, a European vendor of business-class routers, to jointly provide multi-service routers to Pirelli’s customer base.

Under the agreement, Pirelli and OneAccess will go to market with a new line of business-class routers for data, voice and multi-service applications. The Pirelli-OneAccess business-class portfolio consists of two product families: data and voice, and data only. The integrated access device (IAD) product line features VoIP functionalities providing best-in-class interface combinations (up to four BRI, eight-FXS ports, four-Ethernet ports, and WLAN 802.11g) to connect phones, faxes, PABX, and LAN workstations and is ideally suited for telecom operators and service providers wanting to deliver bundled voice and data services to small and medium-sized businesses. The IP router product line offers scalable and configurable, secure, high-speed Internet/IP-VPN connections for small and medium businesses. The Pirelli-OneAccess business-class router portfolio will be initially available in Italy and then in other European markets.

“By partnering with OneAccess, Pirelli is able to enhance its product portfolio and provide complete business-class solutions for small, medium and enterprise customers,” said Corrado Rocca, senior vice president, Product Marketing and Development -- Broadband Access Products, for Pirelli Broadband Solutions. “This strategic alliance allows us to build on the solid track record we have established in the residential and SOHO markets by offering high-quality and service-oriented solutions for the higher-end market.”

Bertrand Meis, CEO OneAccess, added: “It is clear that Pirelli, already a leader in Italy and an expert in multi-service solutions for IP convergence, is the right partner to address Telco’s market with our product range. Our innovative technology developed 4 years ago is now widely deployed by European Incumbent and Alternative operators. This alliance with Pirelli represents for us a key strategy for answering market expectations, and today’s rocketing Enterprise VoIP requirements,” said.
