BT kicks off NGN ‘Etherflow’ rollout in Republic

12 Mar 2010

BT Ireland has launched the latest phase of its 21st Century Network (21CN) rollout with the deployment of NGN Etherflow fibre/radio access equipment at select points across Ireland. SiliconRepublic reports that BT intends to expand its number of Etherflow points across the country as and when Eircom opens up its next generation access infrastructure to rivals in the ‘coming days’. BT Etherflow is a scalable technology that can grow with a business at a lower price per megabit than existing network services. Etherflow enables BT to provide an end-to-end network service, with local access circuits at one end and seamless connectivity to BT’s global networks at the other.
