SAMSUNG Successfully Rolled Out Triple Play Service Network Supporting Internet, Phone and Broadcasting for Versatel

Seoul, Korea, September 14, 2005 : Samsung Electronics
announces its successful launch of the first ADSL2+ full IP triple play
service (TPS) network in the world. In the Netherlands, Samsung realized
this fast next generation network for communications network operator
Versatel that is able to offer the first triple play service through ADSL2+
to the Dutch market, now.
A state of the art ADSL2+ network can provide services with speeds up
to 24 Mbps. In this case, ADSL2+ enables Versatel to offer much faster
and richer multi play services than providers using regular ADSL networks.
Raj Raithatha, Chief Executive Officer of Versatel, stated: “Versatel
is the first Dutch operator that provides multi media services over ADSL2+.
Our ADSL2+ network has given us the necessary bandwidths to transmit television,
video, telephony and internet services through a single copper line, thus
giving Versatel a leading role in the introduction of new multi play services
in the Netherlands. Given the tight time frame and the innovative character
of the services, Samsung has proven to be a dedicated and reliable partner
in the roll out of ADSL2+ in the Netherlands”.
In eight months, Samsung managed to deploy an ADSL2+ full IP TPS network
in the Netherlands. This turn key end-to-end solution consists of the
delivery, integration and installation of next generation network components,
including soft switches, media gateways, trunk gateways, DSLAMs, media
farms and Ethernet switches. To complete the solution, Samsung has delivered
integrated access devices (IADs) and IP set top boxes for triple play
services, and broadcast servers.
Patrick Bosschart, European Business Director of Samsung Telecommunication
Network System Division, said: “Through a successful launch of this first
ADSL2+ full IP network in the world, Samsung demonstrated its capability
as an end-to-end solution provider, establishing and designing a comprehensive
network for business partners. Thanks to our leadership in consumer electronics,
IP technology and our large experience in the design and integration of
large-scale networks for service operators, we have created a competitive
advantage in the development of next generation networks.”
