freenet completes traffic migration to NGN

3 Jun 2009

Multi-service operator (MSO) freenet has finished the migration from TDM infrastructure to a full next-generation network (NGN) backbone, German equipment vendor TELES has announced in a press release. The vendor was contracted by freenet for the installation of its carrier-grade Class 4 NGN TELES solution in 2007, a project which the company claimed to be one of the largest of its kind in Europe. CTO of the MSO, Stephan Esch, commented: ‘The TELES solution built a bridge to our existing VoIP services and now we have been able to integrate our DSL-based VoIP subscribers and all legacy services into a single, standard-based NGN architecture.’ He added that the solution will lead to greater cost efficiency and scalability, and a reduced carbon footprint thanks to lower power requirements.
