NEC Corporation has concluded a full-turnkey supply contract with the Greek fixed telephone carrier, Tellas S.A.,, to deliver approximately 120 PASOLINK NEO hops (240 systems), as well as provide installation and after-sales services. This contract represents the first order of PASOLINK for NEC in Greece.
Greece is presently implementing the “Broadband Access Development Project”, which aims to equip the country with a communications network by October 2008. This national project divides Greece into 7 regions and designates a communication carrier to construct infrastructure in each region. Tellas is overseeing one of these carriers (equipping 9 districts in the south of the country). This national project proposes to increase area coverage of domestic broadband to 60% by 2008 (as of 2005 coverage stood at 13%), thereby raising population coverage to 90% (from 65% in 2005).
