Cisco's technology helps enable the delivery of these bundled services over Ethernet on a single optical fibre. "From the very beginning our mission has been innovation -- not only in terms of the services we supply to our customers, but in the type of technology we use to support them," says Guido Garrone, FastWeb Network Operations Director, "Our decision to select Cisco was a direct consequence of their leadership in the IP arena. Cisco was not only able to offer the key technologies, but also made it easy to set up and tune the solution to handle a mixed bundle of voice, video and data services with proper end-to-end quality of service."
