Matav has selected Cisco Systems, Inc.'s (www.cisco.com) optical networking equipment as the foundation of an expansion project and new infrastructure. This will provide transport services to the Hungary Ministry of Education and other customers throughout the country.

Matav chose the ONS 15800 Series Long-Haul DWDM System and the ONS 15200 Metro DWDM line to expand capacity and achieve the lowest transport cost per bit.

"By creating new capacity in our core and metro networks utilizing DWDM technology, we are cost-effectively able to address increased demand for high-bandwidth services as well as expand our connectivity throughout Europe," says Geza Paksy, head of transport Networks Development Department, Matav. "Cisco's DWDM solutions enable us to deliver bandwidth with the flexibility of single wavelength increments as well as the scalability to provide valuable services to our customers and to efficiently add capacity for evolving bandwidth requirements."

The addition of DWDM technologies to Matav's optical fiber infrastructure brings scalability as well as increased capacity and lower cost. Initial links, which began to receive live traffic in October, will support 2.5 Gbps with scalability to support 10 Gbps traffic for future growth. The increased capacity of Matav's new network will also enable the company to provide connectivity to Hungary for large European service providers to increase Matav's revenue opportunities and extend its reach.
