Telecom Lead Europe: Calix, a provider of telecom
multiservice access solutions, announced that Swedish cable TV
operator Kopings Kabel-TV AB (Kopings Kabel) has deployed the
Calix Unified Access portfolio to deliver advanced broadband services
to its subscribers.
The deployment will benefit residents and businesses of
the Koping community as it offers a wide range of access technologies,
including gigabit passive optical network (GPON), point-to-point gigabit
Ethernet (GE), and digital subscriber line (DSL), across both fiber and copper.
This advanced access infrastructure is capable of delivering speeds of up to 1
Gigabit per second (Gbps).
As the broadband demands of our subscribers continued to
grow in our community, we wanted to be able to take advantage of our existing
cable ducting infrastructure to provide a wider range of services including
ultra high-speed data, reliable voice, and advanced broadband TV services as
well as our traditional channels,” said Daniel Nordqvist, chief technology
officer of Kopings Kabel.
As the company found the existing platform could not
scale to meet the needs, it turned to Calix. The Calix B6 and the 700GE family of
optical network terminals (ONTs) now provides them with the ability to grow as
their customer grow, and to migrate from GPON and DSL to point-two-point GE as
the market demands.
The B6/700GE solution is well-suited to meet the
emerging demands of the Koping community, providing a flexible mix of
technology options to efficiently and effectively meet ever-changing services
and bandwidth requirements.
Kopings Kabel serves over 10,000 subscribers with its TV
and cable services and provides them with 110 high definition channels.
The new network infrastructure will enable Kopings Kabel to operate a
single network over a unified access platform combining GPON, point-to-point
GE, and DSL technologies to deliver advanced broadband services.
