MARKHAM, Ont. -- Sun Microsystems of Canada Inc. today announced that Telecom Ottawa, a broadband data and Internet services provider to Eastern Ontario businesses and public-sector organizations, is using the Sun Java Enterprise System, running on the Solaris operating system, to assist in rolling out cost-effective, mission-critical services to its business customers.

Telecom Ottawa owns and operates one of the world’s largest Ethernet networks, which serves the needs of education, healthcare, municipal government and corporate enterprises in the Ottawa region. To standardize the software required to run its numerous business applications, Telecom Ottawa has invested in Sun’s Java Enterprise System. The reduced cost, complexity and standardized language afforded by Java Enterprise System allows Telecom Ottawa to more effectively meet customer demand and introduce new telecommunications services to its portfolio. Additionally, Java Enterprise System’s easy installation and predictable release schedule offers Telecom Ottawa more flexibility and planning capabilities.

Telecom Ottawa has previously experienced success with Sun products, and was eager to capitalize on the benefits offered by the Java Enterprise System.

“Telecom Ottawa is taking the lead in Ontario’s telecom sector by using technology solutions that allow us to provide the best tools our customers need to conduct business,” said Dave Dobbin, COO Telecom Ottawa. “Our customers demand diverse broadband services and our decision to implement Java Enterprise System demonstrates our commitment to remain at the forefront of the telecom industry without the risk of having to pass costs on to customers.”
