TeleCable, Nortel Provide Cajastur Savings Bank with Secure Private Network

    Madrid, Spain (ots/PRNewswire) -

    - Single Network Carries Bank's Data, Voice, Video and Internet Access    Communications Across 100 Locations

MADRID, Spain, May 30 /PRNewswire/ --

    Spanish telecommunications provider TeleCable is supplying Cajastur, a  large regional savings bank in Spain, with Nortel(x) (NYSE: NT , TSX: NT)  technology and services to securely connect its 100 bank offices across  three major cities in the Asturias region.

    The new network will deliver cost-savings on critical communications  such as Internet banking and gives the bank the flexibility to evolve its  communications to meet future demand for the bank's services. The solution  uses a single converged network, based on Nortel's Ethernet Virtual Private  Network (VPN) technology, to support all Cajastur's communications, and  includes installation, commissioning, integration and technical support  services from the Nortel Global Services portfolio.

    "The communications solution provided by Nortel and TeleCable meets  Cajastur's critical requirement of highly secure and reliable communications to support customer transactions," said Roberto Paraja,  president, TeleCable. "Also, the continuing close working relationship  between Nortel and TeleCable meant that we were able to jointly define and  understand the bank's communications needs and create a cost-effective  network solution."

    Building on the successful deployment of the Cajastur network, TeleCable plans to offer Ethernet VPN services to other major business  customers in Spain's Asturias region.

    "This new banking deployment is a good example of how Nortel and TeleCable are collaborating effectively on network communications projects  across Spain," said Michel Clement, president, Southern Europe. "The Nortel  Metro Ethernet solution is a secure and reliable technology for creating  Ethernet VPNs that enable business users to cost-effectively support all  their voice, video and data services on a single converged network  infrastructure.

    Ethernet VPNs are a cost-effective and flexible solution for connecting  customer locations. By simply extending the Ethernet from the local area  network (LAN) standard to the wide area network (WAN), multiple TeleCable  customer locations, such as Cajastur's 100 bank offices, can be connected  through VPNs based on native Ethernet technology.

    The Cajastur Ethernet VPN, supplied by TeleCable, is based on carrier-  grade Ethernet technology. The technology provides high levels of network  security and reliability, critical for business continuity, with features  such as sub 50 milliseconds protection switching, traffic prioritisation  and service demarcation.

    The network is based on Nortel's Metro Ethernet portfolio, including  the Metro Ethernet Routing Switch 8600 and Metro Ethernet Services Unit  1800/1850. The Ethernet-based infrastructure is operated over an optical  network using Nortel's Optical Metro 5000 platform. The optical network is  critical for providing the reach and capacity to connect multiple locations  across the Asturias region of Spain.

    Nortel's Global Services include a full range of integrated services  for design, deployment, management and maintenance of end-to-end multi- vendor network solutions, including seamless migration to next generation  technologies.
