Siemens wins deal to expand transmission network for TDC Switzerland

TDC Switzerland AG (sunrise) has commissioned Siemens to replace and
expand its wide area network, a company statement said.

The installation will enable the telecom provider to offer its customers the latest services with maximum scalability, the company said, adding that the contract will run for three years.

The Swiss telecom provider's existing wide area network dates back to
the early days in 1997.

However, requirements with regard to performance and cost-effectiveness have grown so tremendously in the past years that it has become necessary to switch to a solution provided by the latest generation of networks.

In the future, sunrise will use the multi-service provisioning platform Surpass hiT 70xx from Siemens Communications.

This will result in reduced internal costs for transmission services in the main network as well as enable sunrise to offer its customers innovative new services.
