BATM delivers project extension to Tier 1 network service provider in Southeast Asia

Deployment of 10GE solution to expand customer’s broadband capacity and enable compliance with latest industry standards

BATM Advanced Communications Limited (LSE: BVC), a leading provider of real-time technologies for networking solutions and medical laboratory systems, is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned Telco Systems (“Telco”) subsidiary has supplied a 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) solution to a prominent Tier 1 telecommunications service provider (“the Customer”) in Southeast Asia. This follows the successful deployment, under a previous contract, of Telco products as part of an earlier network modernisation project that enabled the Customer to expand its customer base and offer 4G/LTE services.

Under this latest contract, the Group has provided several hundreds of its T-Marc 3348 devices, an interface solution that incorporates high capacity in a compact size, to enable the Customer to expand its network capacity to 10GE. By expanding its network capacity to 10GE, the Customer is able to support more broadband traffic and offer higher quality services. In addition, the Group has implemented its EdgeGenie Orchestrator CE 2.0 management system, which provides the Customer with a comprehensive framework for defining, monitoring and controlling the service provisioning processes.

A key reason the Customer decided to expand the capacity of its network was as part of a corporate effort to comply with the latest industry standards – the MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) standards. Launched in 2012 by the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF), the CE 2.0 certification programme is the MEF’s second generation of standards for service providers and equipment vendors. CE 2.0 certification is a very rigorous process involving hundreds of test cases. The T-Marc 3348’s built-in compliance with MEF CE 2.0 standards was one of the reasons that the Customer selected Telco.
Zvi Marom, Chief Executive Officer of BATM, said: “We are proud to have been awarded this project extension with an existing Tier 1 customer, which is testament to our successful delivery of a previous contract and furthers our stated strategy of focusing on expanding our Tier 1 client base. 10GE is quickly becoming a requirement for service providers around the world to meet the broadband demands of new services and customer usage, and, with our industry-leading solutions, we are well positioned to help them with this migration.”
