Ericsson, SATEL to Supply Russia's First Ethernet DSL Access Network

11/10/2003 - Ericsson and SATEL Company Group announce the signing of an agreement to supply Russia's first Ethernet DSL Access network. Ericsson's Ethernet DSL Access solution will provide broadband Internet access for SATEL's wireline operator network Infoline, in the Moscow region.

Ethernet DSL Access will provide Infoline's customers with highspeed connections to Internet by upgrading existing phone lines with Ethernet DSL technology.

Ethernet DSL Access is designed with low cost of ownership and scalability in focus to be able to bring DSL to the mass market. Through multiannex ADSL2 and wirespeed throughput, the solution gives operators the possibility to offer their subscribers the entire spectrum of broadband access services.

"Cooperation with Ericsson during implementation of the Ethernet DSL network allows us to keep up with the constant progress and offer our clients full freedom when choosing the solution that corresponds best to their needs," says Roman Romanov, Deputy General Director of Satel. "It provides a low-risk way of meeting customers demands for Internet access".

"We are pleased to continue the relationship with the Satel Company Group which has evolved over 6 years," says Eddie Ahman, President of Ericsson in Russia. "Our cooperation began in the area of small-scale corporate communications systems and PBX distribution, as well as system integration based on Ericsson equipment, today SATEL continues to select the most advanced solution enabling their client - Infoline - to offer high-speed Internet access services, and at the same time decreasing capital costs".

Ericsson is shaping the future of Mobile and Broadband Internet communications through its continuous technology leadership. Providing innovative solutions in more than 140 countries, Ericsson is helping to create the most powerful communication companies in the world.

Uniting a number of enterprises operating in different telecommunications areas , the Russian company SATEL offers its clients entire spectrum of services in the field of development and realization of telecom projects. SATEL carries out installation of technological and communications equipment (PBX, city exchanges, DECT equipment, data transmission equipment, etc).

About Infoline
CJSV "Infoline" telecommunications company was founded in 1998. Its integral telecommunications network allows offering its subscribers the following ,major types of services:

Infoline customers are also offered the possibility to use additional services: conference calls; fax, e-mail; high-speed data exchange via cable TV channels (up to 10 Mb/s and more).

About Ericsson's Ethernet DSL Access Solution
Ericsson's Ethernet DSL Access solution enables fixed network operators to deploy the required second-mile bandwidth at less than half of the cost of equivalent ATM-based bandwidth. By avoiding concentration in the DSLAM and connecting directly to an Ethernet aggregation network, the new solution opens up the possibility to support high bandwidth demanding services without DSLAM bottlenecks. This dramatically alters the economics of rolling out DSL and enables operators to address the 'second wave' of broadband subscribers profitably, following the initial early-adopter wave.

A key advantage of providing DSL services in this way is that existing standardized DSL interfaces are unchanged. The subscriber simply uses a standard DSL modem, which the Ethernet connection from the PC or LAN plugs into in the normal way.
