Our ADSL2+ network has given us the necessary bandwidths to transmit television, video, telephony and internet services through a single copper line, thus giving Versatel a leading role in the introduction of new multi play services in the Netherlands. Given the tight time frame and the innovative character of the services, Samsung has proven to be a dedicated and reliable partner in the roll out of ADSL2+ in the Netherlands”.

This turn key end-to-end solution consists of the delivery, integration and installation of next generation network components, including soft switches, media gateways, trunk gateways, DSLAMs, media farms and Ethernet switches. To complete the solution, Samsung has delivered integrated access devices (IADs) and IP set top boxes for triple play services, and broadcast servers.
