EXFO's triple-play tester selected by Tier-1 European network operator
JANUARY 7, 2010 -- EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc. has announced that its AXS-200/635 triple-play test set has been selected by a Tier-1 European network operator to support the deployment of its next-generation FTTC/VDSL2 services and applications. EXFO received an initial order of US$2 million, but the deal could reach 10 million over several years.According to EXFO, the network operator recognized the need for a next-generation, automated, and easy-to-use handheld test set for its field technicians and advanced field engineers capable of operating and troubleshooting on bare wire loops, ADSL, and newer VDSL2 circuits up to the wideband frequencies used for triple-play and IP video service deployments.The AXS-200/635 offers an intuitive graphical user interface, fast and fully automated test routines, reliable laptop and workflow integration via Bluetooth, integrated ADSL/VDSL2 wideband testing from application layers all the way down to copper pairs, and support for optical testing to fully validate broadband deployments as well as proven IP analysis over DSL and Ethernet links, according to the company.The multilayer tester is part of the AXS-200 product line used in deployment, troubleshooting, and repair of voice, ADSL2+, VDSL2, Ethernet, TDM, optical, and triple-play services such as IPTV and VoIP. The AXS-200/635 has been designed to be easily integrated into existing outside-plant workflow practices with full support for northbound results transfer and southbound work order downloads directly from the test set."This leading and very demanding customer has confirmed that the AXS-200/635 is the ideal tool to efficiently roll out next-generation circuits, and the wide field acceptance and time saved will provide them with an excellent return on their investment," says Etienne Gagnon, EXFO's vice president of product management and marketing. "The AXS-200/635's ease-of-use, including customized auto-testing with plain-language results, and full integration capabilities with our customer's management systems provide a unique value proposition that supports efficiency when deploying new access technologies."
NTCA: Rural telcos turning to FTTH, FTTN for broadband
NOVEMBER 25, 2009 -- A recent survey by the National Telecommunications Cooperative Association (NTCA) reveals that small rural communications providers are deploying fiber at what it called “an impressive pace” to enable high-speed broadband service to their customers. Fiber to the node (FTTN) is the preferred strategy, but fiber to the home (FTTH) has doubled in popularity.NTCA's “2009 Broadband/Internet Availability Survey” found that nearly three-quarters (73%) of respondents with a fiber deployment strategy intend to offer FTTN to more than 75% of their customer base by 2011. Fifty-five percent plan to offer FTTH to more than half their customers in that same time frame -- more than doubled from just 26% last year. (View the report)The study says that rural areas are seeing significant gains in broadband speeds, primarily due to the increased fiber availability in their communities. Fifty-three percent of respondents indicated their customers can now receive broadband service of between 3 and 6 Mbps (up from 46% last year), and 39% can receive service in excess of 6 Mbps, which is an increase from just 25% a year ago. Survey respondents indicated an increase in take rates for the higher broadband speed tiers as well.Fiber deployment costs remain a significant impediment facing rural carriers, cited as an obstacle by 93% of survey respondents. Rugged terrain, distance, and low customer density exacerbate the problem. Three-quarters (75%) of respondents now offer a video play, up from 68% last year. Of those, 93% offer video under a cable franchise. An additional 11% indicated they plan an offering in the future. Most (89%) respondents indicated they face competition in the provision of advanced services from at least one other service provider, including national ISPs, cable companies, and wireless ISPs.NTCA sent the 2009 survey electronically to all telco members in its e-mail database and 156 companies (31%) responded. Fifty-six percent of respondents' service areas are 500 square miles or larger; 27% are at least 2000 square miles. Sixty-seven percent of those have customer densities of 10 residential customers or less per square mile, with nearly one-third (31%) reporting customer densities of just two or fewer residential customers per square mile.
Teledata Networks wins $17M deal with Central Asian operator
OCTOBER 12, 2009 -- Teledata Networks, a global provider of multiservice access offerings for next-generation networks (NGN), has won a $17 million deal to provide a major Central Asian telecommunications company with the new BroadAccess-1000E systems to advance its existing infrastructure toward NGN.As part of the awarded project, hundreds of BroadAccess-1000E systems will be deployed across the country to deliver a range of voice and broadband services up to 100 Mbps to residential and business customers.The BroadAccess-1000E systems will provide the multifunctionality of an IP-MSAG, IP-DSLAM, and fiber access platform and is expected to transform the current network to IP-based NGN. The systems will be installed in an advanced FTTR and FTTP network architecture suited to the supply of high-speed services over copper and optical fiber. BroadAccess-1000E incorporates a 360-Gbps Ethernet design together with 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) resilient transmission and a range of optical and xDSL services, including ADSL2+ and VDSL2."The outstanding capabilities of the new BroadAccess-1000E platform provide a perfect match for the customer's needs for efficient migration to NGN and triple play," claims Eran Ziv, chief executive officer of Teledata Networks. "This significant deal follows a series of recent wins that highlight the superiority of BroadAccess-1000E over competing solutions and continue to strengthen our business growth and leading market position."
