BACKNANG, Russia -- Marconi Corporation plc (London: MONI and NASDAQ: MRCIY) announced today that OAO Bashinformsvyaz, the largest communications services provider in the Russian Republic of Bashkortostan (Bashkirian Republic), has used Marconi's next-generation optical technology to launch new data-over-Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) services to its customers. The new service has been enabled by Marconi's next-generation OMS1664 multiservice metro platform, supported by its MS1/4 SDH equipment and ServiceOn network management system.

OAO Bashinformsvyaz has used its new Marconi equipment to create a multiservice network while at the same time increasing its transport capacity to Synchronous Transfer Mode 16 (STM-16) — about 2.5 Gbps. Its new Marconi 16-port 10/100M Ethernet card with Generic Frame Procedure (GFP) and Link capacity Adjustment Scheme (LCAS) enables the operator to provider data-over-SDH services to its customers. Integration, monitoring and control of the network will be handled by Marconi's management system, ServiceOn Access. OAO Bashinformsvyaz intends to develop further the multiservice functionality of its new network in the future.

”This win builds on the growing success of Marconi's flagship OMS1664 multiservice provisioning platform as well as representing another strategic business win for our central European business in Russia,” said Dr Stefan Kindt, managing director and CEO of Marconi Communications GmbH. ”The OMS1664 will allow OAO Bashinformsvyaz to launch new services for its customers while improving the overall economic performance of its optical network."

Marconi's OMS1664 multiservice metro platform will enable OAO Bashinformsvyaz to meet the evolving transport needs of its network by allowing the operator to respond to growing demand for emerging optical broadband services. The OMS1664 enables significant network simplification and delivery of multiple services rapidly and efficiently. Designed specifically for an environment of growing demand for new data services, the new, compact, multiservice transport and switching platform can deliver traditional and new services cost-effectively and incrementally, in line with emerging demand.
