Athens, Greece – 6 July 2021 - Intracom Telecom, a global telecommunication systems and solutions vendor, announced the signing of an agreement with Nova, major service provider of business solutions and wide range of pay-TV, broadband internet, fixed telephony & energy services, for the supply of advanced network wireless equipment comprising, the WiBAS™ Point-to-MultiPoint (PtMP), the OmniBAS™ Point-to-Point (PtP), the UltraLink™ E-Band radio system and the uniMS™ network management platform.
Looking for solutions and technologies that would augment the delivery of enterprise broadband, specially built for the private and public sector, Nova decided to invest in Intracom Telecom’s MW & mmWave product families to better serve its corporate clients. The selection of the aforementioned technology and the market leading products is an essential part of Nova’s investment in network expansion, modernization and capacity upgrade, especially as the Greek provider, following the acquisition by United Group, is preparing for future growth in advanced data services. The selection of Intracom Telecom was made by Nova through an international RFP.
Nova’s wireless network ensures robust and rapid rollout of services to SMEs and business customers. Intracom Telecom supplies Nova with a variety of platforms, depending on topology and speed of connection. The WiBAS™ product family is being deployed where point to multipoint topology is possible, whereas when point to point is needed then the OmniBAS™ and the UltraLink™ radio system will be used. The whole network is efficiently managed by the uniMS™ Network Lifecycle Assurance software. Intracom Telecom has been commissioned by Nova to continue its support & maintenance with strict SLA.
Nikos Xanthopoulos, Head of Business Product & Presales in Nova: "We are happy to continue our successful partnership with Intracom Telecom in order to provide secure, efficient and reliable services to our business customers through the adoption of appropriate and cost effective technologies."
