CrossNetworks, an independent infrastructure provider, recently selected Centec Networks' Carrier Ethernet routing switch solutions, for its nationwide backbone network in the Netherlands.

These solutions help CrossNetworks build the network, which serves as an open nationwide fiber optic backbone and provides reliable and scalable services via superb protection scheme and service SLA.
In a statement, Tao Gu, VP of business development of Centec Networks, said. "The robustness of our system solutions and chipsets on which the system is built on is again being verified by successful service deployment and long-time stable network operations. Centec already has design wins in the US, Europe, South America, East Asia, and China, and we will continue to expand our business worldwide with the cutting-edge silicon and system solutions with superb services."
Additionally, some of the customers of the network are hospitals, local government institutes like mental health care organizations and schools.
"CrossNetworks is glad to have chosen Centec as the solution provider for the advanced carrier Ethernet features, such as Flexible QinQ, ring protection, MPLS VPN, and its outstanding customer support. The cooperation started years ago when we used its early solution based on the first generation chip and now we're glad to upgrade to the latest one. The devices are quite a fit and are running stably," said Robert Roomer, founder and director of CrossNetworks.
