It's not often one gets to flaunt one's hi-tech sales in Albania, which doesn't exactly get its share of attention when it comes to the internet. But today, Juniper Networks (NASDAQ:JNPR, news, filings) announced a win with one of the country's multi-play providers, Tring Communications. Tring will leverage the routing specialist's new network architecture in order to meet the next generation's bandwidth needs across the small Balkan nation. In its reasons for choosing Juniper, Tring highlighted the subscriber management capabilities that come along with the MX Series edge router.
Now, Tring Communications is a new one for me, but I haven't yet found a fiber map for the company - if I do I'll add it to my European fiber maps page. They do have this interesting coverage map of Tirana (upper left), though I'm not quite sure what the colors and shapes mean just yet. They offer both business services and triple play via a DSL footprint, the equipment for which they are using gear from Alcatel-Lucent. But by adopting Juniper's new architecture across the board, Tring becomes something of a showcase for them - assuming it all works as advertised of course.
