Marconi solves : Jordanís bandwidth crunch

Marconi, a global provider of innovative communications solutions, has boosted Jordan Telecomís network capacity significantly with a broadband network services expansion that went live this week. Jordan Telecom, 40 percent owned by France Telecom, also awarded further network upgrades to Marconi this week, including a strategic synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) fiber optic link between Amman and Aqaba, providing greater bandwidth between these two important cities and enhancing a key international telecommunications traffic route.

As the sole supplier of this major turnkey network upgrade in Jordan, Marconi has provided advanced optical SDH multiplexing equipment to Jordan Telecomís Amman Middle and North Transmission Project, greatly increasing backbone capacity, efficiency and ease of management. The project is part of a government effort to build a world-class national communications infrastructure that will attract foreign investment and serve as a key driver of long-term economic growth. Jean-Louis Vareille, chief technical officer at Jordan Telecom, said Marconiís Middle East team secured the contract through a highly proactive, responsive approach: "Marconiís willingness to undertake supply, installation and commissioning of the new SDH equipment within a tight six-month timescale was a key factor in the win, as was the proven performance and reliability of the Marconi systems already installed in the Jordan Telecom network," he said.

"With its stable political environment and well-educated workforce, Jordan represents one of the Middle Eastís most promising regions for growth. An advanced telecommunications infrastructure built around leading edge optical systems like Marconiís SDH portfolio will play a crucial role in driving the business investment needed to capitalize on that potential," said Rod Smith, Executive Vice-President for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) at Marconi.

Jordan is currently rapidly extending its telecommunications infrastructure, with network growth rates now exceeding 20 percent per annum, thanks largely to an active campaign by the countryís leaders to make telecommunications a key development priority.

JTC is the countryís sole supplier of fixed line telephone service. It is owned 60% by the government, and 40% by a consortium led by France Telecom, with which it signed a key strategic partnership in November 1999.

Marconi is a global company with over 48,000 employees. Marconi has research and development facilities in 19 countries, manufacturing operations in 16 countries, and serves customers in over 100 countries. It delivers innovative communications solutions that transform the economics of doing business, for Networks, Wireless and Enterprise customers.
