TeliaSonera selects Cisco for bandwidth expansion

TeliaSonera has selected Cisco’s Remote-PHY solution to increase bandwidth and expand its service across its cable footprint in Finland.

Using the solution, which is part of Cisco’s advanced access architecture, TeliaSonera aims to increase access network capacity, drive more productivity and increase operational efficiency.

TeliaSonera already has an installed base of Cisco Cable Modem Termination Systems (CMTS), but says the addition of Cisco’s Remote-PHY solution will increase broadband service bandwidth for all subscribers, even in sparsely populated areas.

“In a competitive environment, the ability to offer high-speed services to all our subscribers and connect those who previously were unable to access premium broadband services is a key differentiator. Through our work with Cisco, we are transforming our network to provide better services for our subscribers and address our operational and capital expenditure,” said TeliaSonera Finland’s cable network manager, Sakari Kangasvieri.

Cisco Systems Finland’s regional sales manager, operators and outsourcers, Patrick Gordin, added: “Cable Service Providers across Europe are seeking ways to keep ahead of their customers’ bandwidth needs without incurring large capital or operational charges. Our innovative Remote-PHY solution is a key tool to help achieve these goals.
