OTE Begins Nationwide WiMAX Network Buildout for Greece

OTE Hellenic Telecommunications Organization S.A., Greece's leading telecommunications provider, is testing a wide range of value-added, high bandwidth data communications services over WiMAX to be offered to consumers and enterprises nationwide.

OTE has already begun deployment on a nationwide network with initial projects that target pilot markets in Attica and Mount Athos. These pilot markets, used to evaluate the technology for the nationwide rollout, include approximately 20 access sectors and 200 subscriber units. Designs that include the consideration of 3D vector building databases will be part of the detailed studies used for the evaluation. EDX SignalPro with the Network Design Module was used for these initial network designs and will continue to be used throughout the rest of the deployment and optimization phases.
