Belgacom Selects Marconi's MSPP

Belgacom has placed its first orders for Marconi's OMS1664 next--generation multiservice provisioning platform (MSPP). Belgacom, which already operates some 6,000 Marconi SDH platforms in its network, plans to use the OMS1664 to deliver new services. The platform's dual SDH and data bus architecture allows customers to evolve from TDM-based traffic to Ethernet and IP traffic. Marconi will deliver the solution in conjunction with its Belgian partner, Tein Telecom. The two companies have been working together with Belgacom for nearly five years. Financial terms were not disclosed.
