DNA has completed the upgrade of its cable network in Southern Finland.
The was project was begun in 2016 with Teleste contributing DOCSIS 3.1 compatible products.
The upgrade embraces 1,500 cable network sites in Southern Finland and delivers gigabit level broadband throughout the region.
“We are focused on ensuring that our customers can enjoy smooth internet video services also in live environments, and delivering fast and reliable network connections is an elemental part of meeting the target. We are pleased that, together with Teleste, we have been able to deploy the best solution available to bring our cable network customers within the reach of fixed broadband connections that meet their service expectations today, as well as in future,” said Mikko Nurmi, director, Cable Networks, DNA.
As well as high sped broadband the new deployment also makes it possible to monitor and control network signal quality remotely throughout the network from headend to homes. This is achieved through Teleste’s CATVisor Argus management software. DNA is then able to react proactively to any potential network problems before they’re noticed by the customer.
“It has been exciting to work with DNA on this project, which has been the first comprehensive implementation of DOCSIS 3.1 network technology in Finland. As this project shows, the technology really redeems its promise of bringing Gigabit-level broadband speeds for consumers. And what is more, the increased capacity can be further reinforced by taking intelligence deeper into networks to proactive control network disturbances and reduce service outages”, added Hanno Narjus, SVP of Network Products for Teleste.
Teleste will be presenting a case study on stand G31, Hall 7 during ANGA COM (May 30 to June 1).
