CETIN, NEC and Fortinet join forces to modernise large-scale network in four countries


CETIN and NEC Europe, a wholly owned subsidiary of NEC Corporation, announced the signing of a large network security project. Based on solutions of Fortinet and Cellusys, NEC will provide end-to-end services ranging from installation and commissioning to modernising CETIN Group’s network in Serbia, Hungary and Bulgaria as well as Telenor’s network in Montenegro.

CETIN Group’s 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 their major territories in Central and South Eastern Europe.

NEC, a leader in IT and network integration, has a rich history, comprehensive expertise and proven footprint in the network business all around the world. Relying on Fortinet, a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, and Cellusys, a leader in signaling 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.

“With millions of individual users and whole sectors of national economies depending on our communications solutions, security is a key element in designing, building and operating our critical infrastructure. We are happy to choose NEC as a best in class network security solution provider to further improve our existing network. Their unique capability and proven case study of system integration was a decisive factor behind our decision,” said Juraj Sedivy, CEO, CETIN Group.

“NEC is very excited to collaborate with CETIN Group for this large-scale network security project. We believe our strong portfolio and rich history of network business in the global market will be an asset to enhance CETIN’s advanced security network. Together with our innovative technology partners, Fortinet and Cellusys, we are aiming to contribute safe and secure network solutions to improve the current infrastructure,” said Chris Jackson, President and CEO, NEC Europe.
