ZTE Romania and Euroweb Romania have signed an agreement under which the Chinese telecommunication equipments producer will supply a complex SDH architecture designed for equipping Euroweb'™s national fiber optics network.

ZTE will provide optical transmission equipment for each of its 14 sites based in major Romanian cities including Oradea, Arad, Brasov and Buzau. ZTE'™s enhanced STM-16 multiservice equipment '“ the ZXMP S380 '“ allows Euroweb to transport large amounts of voice and data traffic over its optical network.

'By reaching approximately 2500 km, Euroweb'™s national data transmissions network will guarantee the company'™s future development over the next years, by sustaining the increasing data transport/Internet volumes ordered in Romania and also by securing an important transit route on the Hungary-Romania-Bulgaria-Turkey corridor. We are determined to focus on both objectives, by consolidating our position as the leading Internet and data transmission provider for the Romanian business segment and also by extending the operations on data-carrier area', Laurentiu Stan, General Manager, Euroweb Romania.

'We believe that this year'™s investments in the infrastructure, materialized in the development of the fiber optics metropolitan access networks in several cities in Romania, the commercial launch of the new generation communications service '“ Eurovoice, and now the development of our own national data transport network, all this are key elements in Euroweb'™s future development', Claudiu Amortoaie, Technical Manager, Euroweb Romania.

'Today, more than ever before, businesses and individuals have come to rely on increasingly quick and reliable access to information which can only be catered for with fibre-optic technology,' said Mr. Clark Chuanzhong LI, the General Manager.of ZTE Romania SRL 'We are very happy to be working with Euroweb to bring ZTE'™s advanced technology to the people of Romania' continued Mr Clark Chuanzhong LI.

The agreement with ZTE, estimated at about $500.000, stipulates December 2005 as the deadline for finalizing the operation. The equipments and services provided by ZTE will be use for deployment of a network having 14 points of presence in the main cities in Romania.

The ZXMP S380 can provide customers with across-the-board solutions that integrate TDM, Ethernet and ATM access in a unified platform, thus seamlessly evolving the existing voice oriented network to a multi-service network, with maximum return on investment, and cost effectiveness for service scalability and network evolution.

In March, ZTE won the contract to supply Cabletel, Bulgaria'™s leading fixed-line operator, with the country'™s first ever DWDM optical network. In 2002, ZTE'™s SDH equipment was first deployed in Europe in a deal covering Poland'™s nationwide optical network.
