Unisource Carrier Services (UCS), the wholesale arm of the European telco, has developed its own ATM network, indicating a wish to separate its business from its parent.
Unisource has been hit by a barrage of bad events this year, including news that its key partner, AT&T, will pull out of their joint venture in 2000, plus the loss of Telecom Italia and Telefonica as allies.
UCS claims its $20 million network is one of the first operational pan-European ATM based voice and IP links. It spans Germany, France, Italy and the UK, and will be offered to new operators and service providers.
The early version of the network was finished in three months, and Unisource will invest a further $50 million over the next three years in the project.
