Irish Defense Forces use Promina to expand comications

Officials at the Irish Defense Forces in Dublin needed a communications platform to expand their existing network that serves more than 20 sites across Ireland.

So they chose nine Promina 800 Series multiservice access platforms from Network Equipment Technologies Inc. (N.E.T.) in Fremont, Calif. The installation complements the Irish Defense Forces` existing N.E.T. multiservice network to manage voice and data transmission requirements to meet multiservice access needs.

"N.E.T. solutions have proven to be both cost-effective and reliable over the last two years," says Col. Sean Brennan, director of the Communications and Information Services Corps for the Irish Defense Forces. "We have reduced our network costs, and at the same time more effectively managed our system internally. The addition of N.E.T.`s Promina products to our network will further extend these benefits and allow us to take our communications structure into the 21st century."

Irish Defense officials expect the installation costs of the Promina multiservice access platforms to be recovered within a year.

The N.E.T. Promina 800 Series multiservice access platform family adapts and aggregates voice, data, or video traffic for access to ATM and other WAN services. The Promina platform supports intelligent switching of toll-quality compressed voice, frame relay, legacy, IP data traffic, ISDN traffic, and ATM access. - J.M.
