STOCKHOLM -- Transmode Systems AB, a leading supplier of transmission equipment for fibre optic networks, and ARCHE, the leading French System Integrator, announced today that they have been selected by Tiscali France to support the rollout of unbundled DSL services in several major urban areas across the country.

The contract was won through Transmode's System Integrator partner in France, ARCHE. ARCHE, part of the Omnetica group, is France's leading System Integrator for telecommunications solutions and has been Transmode's partner since November 2003.

Tiscali is France's second largest ISP and its third largest provider of residential DSL Services. Transmode's System 1100 WDM platform will be used to backhaul residential broadband traffic over Gigabit Ethernet from Tiscali DSLAM locations to central hubs. In the first phase of the contract, due for completion by the end of August 2004, Transmode equipment will be installed in more than hundred locations across 20 fibre rings. Further rings will be added during 2005 as part of Tiscali's continuing rollout of DSL services across France.

"We chose Transmode's solution because it offered the best balance between functionality, price and modularity", commented M. Rostagni, Backbone Manager of Tiscali France. "Transmode's leading-edge technology and competitive pricing, together with the organisational strength of ARCHE as its System Integrator partner, proved to the winning combination we were looking for to support our DSL rollout plans".
