Beijing Telecom has commissioned Siemens (SI) to install and deliver its Next Generation Networks solution Surpass.
The solution will provide Beijing Telecom, which is a competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) in Beijing, with versatile access methods, such as Ethernet, DSL and WLAN. Beijing Telecom can now offer its customers a number of value-added services such as voice/data convergence and multimedia applications.
The networking equipment from Siemens allows Beijing Telecom to offer differentiated value-added services to gain more momentum in the highly contested Chinese telecommunications market.
Due to the carrier-grade stability and powerful processing capability of the Surpass NGN solution, Beijing Telecom can now fully address data and service stream pass-through between public/private networks and enterprise intranets of its key customer, the China education network (CERNET). The contract involves the Surpass hiE 9200 core softswitch as a media gateway controller, the Surpass hiG media gateways and terminals.
