Czech's Sloane Park Deploys Cisco for Optical Transport

Sloane Park Property Trust, which provides wholesale telecommunications and data transit services using a fiber network installed along oil pipelines and Czech railways routes across the Czech Republic, has selected Cisco for its optical transport network. The next-generation transport network (NGTN) based on Cisco's routing and optical networking technologies spans some 1,500 km. The network is equipped with Cisco ONS 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform and ONS 15216 products. Cisco 7600 Series Routers provide Gigabit Ethernet aggregation on a metro-network level to support "triple play" service delivery. The backbone upgrade replaces a synchronous digital hierarchy core and supports traffic rates of 10 Gbps. Financial terms were not disclosed.
