PETALUMA, Calif. -- Turin Networks, a global provider of multiservice optical transport products for carrier, wireless and private networks, announced today that Epsilon Telecommunications, a leading UK-based telecommunications company, has deployed Turin's Traverse(TM) Multiservice Transport Switch in its London metro ring network to expand network capacity by a factor of four -- from 2.5Gbps to 10Gbps. In a second phase, Epsilon will turn its attention to a major European backbone expansion, with plans to deploy Traverse switches initially in its Paris, Frankfurt, and Amsterdam metro rings.

With the Traverse platform in operation, Epsilon is in position to introduce Ethernet-based services such as voice-over-IP (VoIP) to its customers.

"Epsilon has one of the best connected voice interconnection networks in Europe, and the Turin platform has given us the means to speed up the provisioning cycle and to broaden support for our growing market," said George Szlosarek, network operations manager for Epsilon. "Turin products will be at the heart of our expanded Ethernet service capability. The advanced features of the Traverse platform's NGE (next-generation Ethernet) cards, coupled with other equipment from the product portfolio, allow for a truly flexible Ethernet service offering."

A core service of Epsilon is supplying E1 connections between cities in Europe and the US. According to Epsilon officials, the Traverse platform's distributed switching architecture is an ideal fit for the company's business, providing true pay-as-you-grow scalability and economics.

"The wide variety of modules available for the Turin chassis gives Epsilon a strong competitive advantage," said Szlosarek. "In one unit we can integrate SDH, Ethernet, and WDM optics, enabling us to optimize the network for whatever application we need to deliver. And our efforts are backed by Turin's European sales and operations team, which has provided outstanding support."
