- Six Key Technology Partners from UK, Finland as well as Israel, comprises of Ethos Networks -
Israel, 28 May 2008: The ETNA European consortium (Ethernet Transport Networks Architectures connected with Networking), which can be comprised connected with leading European know-how providers in addition to universities includes introduced that it includes gotten acceptance from the European Commission to execute this offered ETNA venture which could analyse, design plus confirm future metro and also main networks based upon Ethernet technology.
The goal associated with ETNA will be to suggest a type architecture for the low priced pan-European Ethernet community able to providing millions of subscribers, providing common, trustworthy along with safe travel infrastructure regarding numerous existing and future network services. The ETNA undertaking is definitely component to your Seventh EU Framework Program (FP7) and began upon 01/01/2008. The a pair of season challenge can be likely to end simply by 31/12/2009.
The ETNA range includes Nokia Siemens Networks Technologies (IL, project coordinator), BT (UK), Ethos Networks (IL), Ben Gurion University involving that Negev (IL), Helsinki University of Technology (FI) and also Ernst & Young Israel (IL). The ETNA Consortium could put in a total regarding 3.4 million over the next two years, that the European Commission will contribute 2.2 million. The successful progress on the Ethernet network possesses this prospective to help contour upcoming improvements connected with info and also communication technologies all of which give essential benefits regarding European seniors along with businesses. Low cost, scalable and helpful Ethernet transportation networks will probably make it possible for the development of a number of associated with impressive applications and will create new opportunities for large cost merchandise plus services.
The ETNA range will explain this prerequisites with regard to different and also ground breaking nation-wide Ethernet networks, study and also grow architectures essential operate these companies in the cost-effective manner, layout this community capabilities to offer products that will residential, enterprise along with cell members as well as take a look at techno-economic versions involving like architectures.
"We tend to be pretty pleased in order to advance each of our research in the discipline associated with ICT using globe primary study as well as alternative organizations," said Ilya Vershkov, ETNA task coordinator. "This task acts like a additional case in point in the dedication the particular ETNA partners to create new along with impressive options in order to prove your prototype with the network nodes. The circle will be according to Ethernet technology along with competent at supplying scalable stage to be able to point in addition to multipoint services and also help ability to move within Ethernet networks".
