Transmode has supplied the Slovenian company Telemach with a high-capacity optical network running from the capital Ljubljana to the country's second city, Maribor, and to Vienna in Austria. The network is intended to significantly reduce operating costs and long-term overheads.

Telemach is Slovenia's leading provider of cable TV, telephony and broadband internet services. The company is part of the United Group, which operates a range of telcos in the Adriatic region and serves more than 1.65 million residential and business users. Transmode is now the primary optical networking provider to the whole of the United Group.

Marko Šter, Telemach's chief executive officer, said: 'We wanted to both increase the capacity of our network and improve the ability to provision and deliver successful and innovative services to our customers. We chose Transmode because its team understood our needs and design requirements and they have provided us with quality and simplicity in this WDM solution.

'The new network provides us with a technological advantage and means we are able to offer our customers the best possible service experience.'
