OTTAWA, Ontario, April 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- BTI Systems, an innovator in packet optical networking for metropolitan networks, today announced it has increased its market penetration in the high-growth telecom sector of Russia and CIS. Driven by the increased use of IP communications services in the region, the company's solutions have been selected by leading mobile, fixed-line and Internet service providers building next-generation networks to connect customers throughout the Russian Central and Ural Federal regions, Ukraine and Armenia.
The largest operator of cellular, fixed, wireless, international and national carrier services in the Ural region has selected BTI Systems to build a converged backbone to enable the delivery and management of both packet-based broadband and traditional circuit-based services by a single system. This new, converged network will deliver a premium experience for its business, residential and wholesale customers.
"The premium list of customers and partnerships we have established in Russia & CIS represent our commitment to support service providers around the world, regardless of their business models or location," said Steve Waszak, president and CEO, BTI Systems. "Together with our partners, we will offer a broad, deep portfolio of solutions and services that truly make a difference in our customers' everyday businesses."
With a growing base of partners to support service providers throughout Russia & CIS, BTI Systems is well-positioned to meet the growing global market demand in the region. To support this service evolution, BTI Systems continues to build on its successful go-to-market strategy alongside its partners to ensure that service providers can leverage the full capabilities of its network. As part of its distinct solution portfolio, BTI Systems is delivering the BTI 7000 Series packet optical networking platform; the proNX Service Manager to configure, monitor and automate network planning; and the packetVX integrated Ethernet services modules to deliver a premium experience for business, residential and wholesale customers.
The overall telecom industry in Russia & CIS has experienced consistent growth, through both regional expansion and the development of new services, including IPTV, broadband Internet and application delivery. Similar to its North American counterparts, many of Russia & CIS's incumbent network providers have offset their eroding voice telephony revenues by investing in next-generation networks to meet this demand.
