CETIN, a wholesale provider of fixed and mobile telecommunications infrastructure, and NEC Europe Ltd have announced the signing of a large network security project relevant to a number of countries in Eastern Europe.
With the help of security solutions from Fortinet and Cellusys, NEC says it will provide end-to-end services ranging from installation and commissioning to modernizing CETIN Group’s network in Serbia, Hungary and Bulgaria as well as Telenor’s network in Montenegro.
CETIN Group says its extensive, 24/7 supervised networks provide superior voice, data, TV, video, IT, and cybersecurity services to wholesale customers in the region and internationally. This project was initiated to enhance CETIN’s network in its major territories in Central and South Eastern Europe.
NEC is a leading name in IT and network integration. Working with Fortinet, which provides broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, and Cellusys, which offers signalling security solutions, NEC has been selected as the system integrator to provide end-to-end services, including design, installation, commissioning, support and maintenance of diverse network security solutions.
By implementing solutions as part of what is known as the Fortinet Security Fabric, CETIN Group says it is able to secure critical devices, data, applications, and connections ranging from the data centre to the cloud to the home office. The platform, it says, delivers broad, integrated and automated protections across the entire digital attack surface. In addition, what Fortinet calls its security-driven networking approach provides tight integration between its network infrastructure and the security architecture.
