Laurel and Telindus Supply VPN Solution for ntl

Laurel Networks and Telindus have delivered a solution that will enable ntl to provide new Ethernet and IP VPN services to its UK business customers. The solution -- a combination of Laurel Networks ST200 and ST50 broadband services routing products and the Laurel Provisioning System -- was delivered and implemented by Telindus, a global network services and solutions provider.

Telindus provided ntl with independent laboratory facilities to test a variety of technology vendor solutions, before selecting Laurel Networks. Telindus then provided a fully-managed service including the installation and commissioning of the Laurel Networks solution as well as providing the on-going support services.

Separately, Laurel Networks announced an expansion of its sales activity in Europe, with offices now in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and the UK. The company has appointed Thomas Schmitt to the position of vice president for Europe, Middle East and Africa operations. Schmitt most recently served as the director of business development for Juniper Networks. While at Juniper, he was instrumental in setting up and managing the sales operations for Central and Eastern Europe. Prior to Juniper, Schmitt held various sales roles at Cisco Systems and StrataCom (acquired by Cisco Systems in 1996). Other additions to Laurel Networks' EMEA sales team include: Marco Berkheij, sales director for Northern Europe; and Uwe Wagner, sales engineer. Mr. Berkheij's 20 years of sales experience includes stints at Alcatel and RedBack Networks. Mr. Wagner has over 16 years of experience with firms like Juniper Networks and Cisco Systems.
