- Main challenges
A network equipment supplier needed to propose an access aggregation network concept used for multiple different services like Business interconnections, Triple Play Services, IP-TV and Video on Demand. The intention was to use the concept as a blueprint for future network evolutions within 50% of the countries where the customer operates. The proposed network architecture was based on the customer’s DWDM integrated Metro Ethernet switching card. All requested services were transported via Metro Ethernet based (E-Line, E-LAN) services. Requirements included protecting critical services within 50ms. The whole solution included an optimized management platform.
- What did we solve?
Devoteam delivered the network design, including protection, services and dimension concept. The concept included very close collaboration with R&D and product management to implement the whole feature set. The team presented the proposed solution and replied at the Q&A session.
- Main benefits
The result was a footprint optimised solution, including CAPEX savings up to 15%. Through the suggested management platform, further future OPEX savings have been enabled. The network design and related savings for the customer pushed the vendor to the shortlist.
