Teleste continues to supply its intelligent optical nodes to Fluvius, a leading multi-utility operator in Belgium. The now-agreed deliveries consist of 750 of Teleste’s AC8810 intelligent 1.2 GHz nodes to Fluvius’ network upgrade in the Flanders region, extending the cooperation between the companies that started the project in 2019. The value of the agreement is estimated to be approximately €1.1 million.
By upgrading its cable infrastructure, Fluvius seeks to ensure future high-speed data transmission capabilities for the subscribers within its network of more than 500,000 homes passed. To ensure a successful outcome for the project, the company’s public bidding process was based on the product price as well as evaluation of the technical criteria, including features such as remote ingress switching, power consumption and housing as well as user-friendly configuration.
“Teleste’s intelligent optical nodes have been designed to give operators excellent capacity performance enhanced with built-in features that enable their easy management and reliable cost-efficient operation in the field. We are pleased that the technology has met Fluvius’ requirements during the first phase of its network upgrade and we are looking forward to continuing our cooperation in the delivery of future-proof services to its broadband subscribers,” said Rami Kimari, Teleste’s Vice President of HFC Networks.
Teleste’s AC8810 1.2 GHz optical nodes provide operators with fibre-level data transmission capacity, cost-effective operation and high redundancy, and they are also easy and economical to operate in the field. Their intelligent network technology, with features such as remote management and ingress switching, is designed to improve the quality of broadband service for subscribers while, for example, utilising the built-in power saving function enables operators to reduce power consumption and achieve a smaller CO₂ footprint in their networks.
