STOCKHOLM -- PacketFront, the world leader in open access fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) technology and next generation broadband aggregation, has announced that Magnet Networks will be the first operator in the world to deploy its new BECS 3 triple-play control and provisioning system.

PacketFront conducted the implementation on behalf of leading broadband solutions provider and systems integrator Industria. It enables Magnet to provide state-of-the-art multi-play services over ADSL2+, the first time this has been done in Ireland.

Already considered one of Europe's most sophisticated broadband networks, Magnet Networks currently provides its subscribers with digital telephony, an initial offering of 65 TV channels and Ireland's fastest broadband connectivity.

Part of a EUR65 million network investment plan announced recently by the company's parent, Columbia Ventures Corporation, the ADSL2+ roll-out and deployment of BECS 3 will now enable Magnet Networks to bring its triple-play services to potential customers in areas hitherto only covered by conventional copper telephone wire.

"There really is nothing available on the market today to beat the provisioning and automation technology of PacketFront's BECS 3 system," said Ingvar Gardarsson, CEO of Magnet Networks. "By combining it with PacketFront's unique IP DSLAM technology, we are now able to roll out ADSL2+ triple play services to a much wider audience of new customers, whilst maintaining the same high performance levels we already achieve over FTTH. Our network is one of the most sophisticated in Europe, so it stands to reason that we should be the first to deploy the most sophisticated broadband control and provisioning technology available."

"PacketFront's BECS 3 control and provisioning system plays a leading role in Industria's overall broadband BackOffice and integration software, for managing the different broadband services and the complex billing management which has been successfully deployed at Magnet Networks," says Industria CEO Gudjon Mar Gudjonsson.
