7 May 2015 | 0
Telcom has announced a €1 million infrastructure upgrade including a 10 Gig Core Network upgrade through Agile Networks and TelecityGroup. The investment will enable the company to enter the business-to-business data services market, delivering connection speeds up to 1Gb/s.
As part of its expansion programme, Telcom teamed up with Agile Networks to design and install the new network which will be hosted in TelecityGroup’s data centre.
Founder and managing director of Telcom Liam Tully said: “Early in the selection process, it became clear that the Agile Networks and TelecityGroup partnership was the right fit for our business. The project plan, scalability and redundancy that Agile Networks, in conjunction with Juniper Networks, proposed for our 10 Gig Core Network upgrade provided Telcom with a solution that ensured consistent reliability of our Voice and Data services. The core network upgrade and overall investment now allows us to provide the latest data and voice technology to businesses here in Ireland, with speeds of up to 1Gb/s.”
Agile Networks managing director Darragh Richardson added: “The new customised core network that Agile Networks designed and installed for Telcom with Juniper Networks, enables them to sell an extended portfolio of services to Ireland’s business community. Through our niche services, we’re helping to build the ‘alternative’ service provider community in Ireland, where companies like Telcom are offering businesses of all sizes, greater supplier choice and better coverage regionally.”
