INTRACOM undertakes a broadband wireline access project for DIGITEL of Philippines

INTRACOM was awarded a new project for the supply of broadband wireline access systems (DSLAMs) to Digital Telecommunications Phils Inc. (DIGITEL), the basic alternative operator of voice, data and internet services in the Philippines.

The project, with an initial forecasted value of 4 million USD, is already under execution through the first partial order of 700,000 USD which includes the supply of INTRACOM's small and large capacity DSLAM systems (FASTmux 2000 and IBAS systems respectively), as well as the corresponding network management system (BBMS). Through the above systems, DIGITEL will offer high-speed data services to enterprises and residential users in the greater Metro Manila area, considerably strengthening its position in the highly competitive broadband services market.

It is worth mentioning that the project was awarded after extensive testing of INTRACOM's systems in the network of DIGITEL in Manila. Trials in the demanding climatic conditions of the Philippines were fully successful, proving INTRACOM's considerable experience in designing telecom systems of high quality and reliability.

FASTmux 2000 systems have already been deployed in more than 50 Telecom Operators worldwide, while the IBAS system has been successfully installed in Greece, the Philippines, Russia, Albania, as well as in African countries.

This new project further enhances INTRACOM's presence in the Philippines, having already supplied the above systems to another local alternative provider of voice, internet and data services.


INTRACOM was founded in 1977, listed on the Athens Stock Exchange since 1990 and included in the FTSE/ASE-20 LargeCap index. INTRACOM Group has 5.450 employees and offers its products and services in 60 countries all over the world, focusing on European Union, N. Africa, M. East and the USA.
