NewWave Communications introduces high-end data services to Kentucky and Tennessee

Selects Nokia Siemens Networks' optical transport platform and services to power rollout of new and advanced data and digital cable services

(PresseBox) (Dallas, Texas, USA, ) NewWave Communications subscribers in the U.S. states of Kentucky and Tennessee will soon be able to enjoy bandwidthintensive services, such as videoondemand (VOD), high definition television (HDTV) and highspeed data access. The cable operator has selected Nokia Siemens Networks' optical transport platform, using dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM), and services to improve its bandwidth availability and implement a flexible, futureproof platform.

"As a service provider, our aim is to offer our customers more, and better quality, services," said Jim Gleason, chief executive officer, NewWave Communications. "As a business, however, we need to ensure that we do so with the right level of investment that draws the highest return in the future. We selected Nokia Siemens Networks for its leadership in optical networking and its superior service capabilities, which we are confident will help us strike the right balance."

"Independent cable operators need to deliver on their promise of highspeed services to cater to a new class of customers," said Ric Herald, head of cable and convergence operators at Nokia Siemens Networks. "We are able to assure NewWave Communications of a reliable and lowcost network platform, complemented by topclass service and support that can help it reduce operating expenses, while offering truly competitive services."

NewWave Communications selected Nokia Siemens Networks' hiT 7300 DWDM platform, an optical platform that increases the amount of bandwidth available on NewWave's network and enables the rollout of new, tripleplay services. The single platform allows NewWave to costeffectively manage its current and future bandwidth needs.

To ensure smooth deployment, Nokia Siemens Networks will provide endtoend services, including system planning, sourcing and installation of the equipment. The project scope also includes care services for monitoring network performance and resolving potential issues.
