Banking on the success of ENGINE concept, Ericsson is extending a comprehensive range of broadband portfolio for small and medium enterprises, offering services like Voice over DSL and IP Virtual Private Networks.

With Voice over DSL, operators will be able to simultaneously offer high quality voice and fast Internet access on an existing copper line without significant investments and with a very short time to market.

“Growth and development in the DSL access market is driven by the need for speed, and multi-service broadband access is quickly becoming crucial to small and medium-sized companies,” said Ove Anebygd, vice president, Ericsson Multi-Service Networks. “Our SME solution enables operators to provide these businesses with higher speeds with symmetric bandwidths as well as multiple telephone and data channels on a single copper line,” he added.

This integrated end-to-end SME solution with one common management system, is based on ENGINE Access Ramp, Ericsson’s multi-service access node for copper networks, and offers fast new revenue streams through ready-made, advanced business access solutions.

ENGINE Access Ramp is a next-generation access solution that integrates narrowband (PSTN/ISDN) and broadband (DSL) services in one single system and enables operators to freely mix between PSTN, ISDN and xDSL services.

The SME portfolio allows operators to offer a multifold of value-added services to business users such as:

  • Fast always-on Internet with ‘speed in both directions’ via SHDSL
  • Virtual Private Networks over IP or ATM
  • Voice over DSL including Voice Centrex (business voice) services
  • Voice over IP
  • Video Services including video conferencing, transmission of high quality graphics and films
