CANNES, France -- Italtel, leader in the development and integration of products and services for new-generation IP networks, and Cisco Systems, the worldwide leader in networking for the internet, today announced that they have been selected by TP, Poland’s main telecommunications operator, for the implementation of a PSTN gateway solution within its multi-service IP network. This infrastructure will enable TP to offer their customers VoIP services and high-speed Internet access.

The contract includes equipment from both Italtel and Cisco Systems. Specifically, Italtel will provide its professional services to TP, including system integration and project management. These extensive skills have been developed through the experience of working with major national and international carriers.

The efficiency and robustness of the proposed Italtel platform have been demonstrated by its performance in other network infrastructures which have commercial traffic capacities of up to 500 billion voice minutes per year. This is strengthened by the fact that some of the main providers in the UK, France, Italy, Spain and Belgium have already deployed the Italtel platform.

“We are especially pleased that TP has chosen to introduce our technology into its national network,” said Antonio Cassese, EVP Sales Operations International Markets for Italtel. “We know that the whole east-central European market is not only dynamic but sensitive to new communications technologies. So we are offering ourselves to TP as a technological and systems partner for the development of new communication services using the IP protocol, providing the experience and know-how that comes from our leadership in the European Softswitch sector.”
