A Slovenian telecommunications company has joined forces with a leading US information technology solutions company in providing comprehensive telecommunications solutions, better known as triple play, which will integrate voice, data and multimedia services in one network.

The Kranj-based Iskratel and Cisco Systems signed a letter of intent on cooperation in constructing IP networks and Metro Ethernet networks for operators of public telecommunications networks.

Iskratel said on Tuesday, 16 November that cooperation with Cisco in the field of comprehensive broadband solutions "makes sense". The fast development of Internet technology has made telecommunication companies look for new services that can be provided via IP networks, Iskratel added.

Offering telecommunication services companies reliable, safe, powerful and cost-efficient networks is a big challenge for the suppliers of solutions, Iskratel pointed out. In line with the letter of intent, Iskratel will integrate Cisco System's solutions into its broadband triple play networks.
