ZTE, netmedia upgrade PrimaCom network

13 Mar 2014

ZTE Corporation and its partner netmedia have announced the successful upgrade of the bearer network of German cable operator PrimaCom to support the development of new service types and increased bandwidth requirements. PrimaCom uses the Chinese vendor’s infrastructure to offer its customers analogue and digital TV services, as well as video on demand (VoD), internet and voice services. ZTE successfully modernised the network with the introduction of ZTE DWDM and SDH products, as well as switches and other customised solutions. The cableco is using ZTE products to ensure consistent and reliable operations of its infrastructure, which enables the company to offer its services in several German states. The migration of the previous system to future operations that standardise on ZTE solutions started in 2011 and the bearer network will become fully ZTE-based in 2014.
