...Optical IP ring provider services emerging metro market...

Dynarc, a leading provider of service-optimised optical IP rings, today announced five new customer wins and two more partners have selected them for the growing Swedish metro market. Danderyd, Oskarshamn, Örnsköldsvik, Ånge and Tierp signed agreements recently with Dynarc to deploy optical IP rings in the metro areas and the Value Added Resellers (VARS) PNB Communications and Swedia Networks selected Dynarc as their strategic partner to target one of the world’s leading optical IP markets.

The Swedish metro market is a pioneer in deploying large-scale optical access rings in the metro areas, both for corporate and residential use. Today, the market has achieved worldwide recognition and is approximately two years ahead of the other European countries.

To make efficient use of these fiber ring installations and allow for large-scale broadband service delivery, the Swedish market has shifted its technology base from legacy technologies like ATM and SONET/SDH to next generation optical IP network technologies.

Dynarc’s leading position has been achieved due to the flexible and scaleable optical IP ring technology that supports advanced IP applications, while reducing overall cost of operations.

”Dynarc’s auto-provisioning routers integrate all necessary features in large-scale IP networks. That allows us to reduce the amount of equipment in the network, and thereby reduce cost of operation, maintenance and support,” declared Monica Elm, manager of Danderyd’s metro network . “The partnership with Dynarc provides us with an IP platform, that allows for quick provisioning of advanced broadband services like video conferencing, telephony, TV and video over IP.”

Additional Partners for the Metro

In addition to new customer wins, Dynarc also announced new partnerships for the growing metro market. Dynarc’s agreement with PNB Communication, allows the system integrator and value added reseller to sell and market a municipality concept based on Dynarc’s auto-provisioning routers. Furthermore, the system integrator Swedia Networks, a subsidiary of Telia, has chosen to design its ”City net”-concept around Dynarc’s new product portfolio. The unique design enables metro carriers to operate provider independent networks, allowing the end-user to freely select his preferred service provider without technology or legal constraints. Swedia Network’s first customer based on this concept is Tierp north of Uppsala.

Dynarc’s optical IP ring technology allows for seamless integration of several metro networks, enable cross-country communications for the customers. One example is RegNet/Norrsken, an alliance of metro carriers in the North of Sweden. The alliance has signed a frame agreement to use Dynarc’s equipment in their network rollouts.

”The Dynarc solution enables the municipalities in the North of Sweden to cost-effectively offer new broadband services to corporate and residential customers,” said Sundsvalls Energi’s CEO Göran Sörell.

For the past year, Dynarc has become a leading provider of IP infrastructure solutions for the Swedish metro market. At the annual Swedish Metro Carrier Alliance meeting, over 300 delegates witnessed how optical IP ring networks can be used to improve the Swedish medical service. A live surgery was conducted at a hospital in Stockholm and presented using a medical high-performance streaming application to the conference center located 300 km from the surgical operation. The delegates had close interaction with the surgeon using a video conference session parallel to the multi-casted picture from the surgery.

According to a survey from the Swedish Metro Carrier Alliance (SSNF), 50 percent of the Swedish metro carriers plan for further deployment of their existing infrastructure within two years.

”The metro networks are continuously deployed and extended to new geographical areas. That is why it is so important for metro carriers to design their network using a scaleable and flexible technology, allowing them to grow their network according to their business plan,” commented Lars Hedberg, president of the alliance.
