Tiscali Italia Deploys Nortel's Metro Optical

Tiscali Italia has completed an extensive deployment of metro optical networking gear from Nortel across Italy. The first phase deployment, covering more than 300 Italian cities, began in October 2004 and is now complete. The second phase deployment is expected to be complete in 2006. The optical network aggregates the IP-DSLAMs that are being used over unbundled local loops to deliver ADSL2-based services to consumers and businesses. Key components of the new optical network deployed by Tiscali include Nortel's Optical Metro 5000 series and Optical Multiservice Edge (OME) 6500. Financial terms were not disclosed.
