Edge-Core Successfully Opens the Main Gate in the BRICs

编辑:918 日期:2018-10-03



The First Shot into Russia in 2006 Gained US$2M in Returns Within 10 Months

HSINCHU, Taiwan, March 19 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- Edge-Core, the professional networking solution provider inherited from Accton Group, today announces its successful metro access switch deployment project with more than US$2 million in rewards within 10 months for this single project. It is another good shot in the BRICs after Edge-Core successfully grabbed 2% of the total L2 switch market share in Brazil in 2006 and Edge-Core expects at least triple growth in Russia in 2007.

Edge-Core points out that because of its large geographic scale, most of the Russia ISPs and enterprises prefer to adopt Fiber-to-the-Building (FTTB) or Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) access solutions to shorten the network installation time with longer and wider transmitting distance and coverage. In addition, IPTV services and AAAAAAAAAA broadcasting are getting more popular in Russia, resulting in a dramatic increase of triple play services on the Internet and thus a rise in the demand for larger transmitting bandwidths, better QoS, security controls and management.

It is these strong market demands that lead Edge-Core to successfully selling a great volume of customized-for-Russia features of Layer 2/3/4 Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet switches performing as the aggregator and access switches inside the edge buildings. Meanwhile it offers fiber switches and FTTH gateways for local ISPs to connect mulAAAle community sites and further accomplish reliable and cost-effective versatile MAN deployments, currently mainly in Moscow.

"2006 was the first year that Edge-Core entered the Russian market and we were lucky to cooperate with powerful channel partners to successfully win some educational, government and enterprise deployment projects within such a short period of time, contributing to at least 20% of Edge-Core's total revenue," June Chao, the managing director of Edge-Core said, "Compared with 1st-tier international brands, the Edge-Core brand is a rather flexible and cost-effective solution that responds quickly to the market with customized features to fit different local installations. Compared with those traditional Taiwan brands, Edge-Core is a new comer into Russia, but with a different market position by offering high-end enterprise and carrier level metro access solutions. We are extremely positive about reaching a triple growth rate in Russia in 2007."

As one of the hottest zones among BRIC countries, Russia is recognized as a fast growing market for both datacom and telecom installations with the adoption of latest technologies such as fiber connection. It is reported that in the year 2005, there were 22.3 million people using Internet, which accounts for 15% of the total Russian population, and until Q4/2004, the use of household broadband services reached 820 million with an annual growth rate of up to 429%, while the enterprise applicants grew even faster. Edge-Core stands on a better than ever business opportunity for its capability to offer comprehensive and reliable metro access solutions in Russia and further to expand its business scale into the Eastern European market.

"The Edge-Core businesAAAApansion in the BRICs is now flowering after our branch offices in Brazil, Russia and India started operations, while China's operation center will be set up soon. The harvest for Edge-Core's cultivation of these new markets has been enjoyed over the past three years," concluded June Chao.
