DNA turns to Teleste for high-speed cable upgrade

DNAFinnish cable operator DNA has tapped ANGA COM exhibitor Teleste to help it deliver ultra-fast internet services over its network in the southern part of the country.

Teleste has completed the deployment of DOCSIS 3.1-compatible network products to a cable network upgrade project that was initiated by DNA last year.

The upgrade embraces 1,500 cable network sites in Southern Finland. Recent capacity tests have show the network to be capable of delivering Gigabit-level broadband speeds to customers in the region.

In addition to utilising DOCSIS 3.1 technology for ultra-high broaband speeds, the deployment makes it possible to monitor and control network signal quality remotely throughout the network from headend to homes with Teleste’s CATVisor Argus management software.

The software, working in tandem with Teleste’s intelligent network devices in the field, allows the operator to act on any problems that could disrupt services, according to Teleste. It also also makes it possible to remotely monitor Remote Ingress Switch (RIS) enabled devices via the cloud.

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.

“It has been exciting to work with DNA on this project, which has been the 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. This makes it possible for the operator to ensure that the quality of service meets the requirements for seamless connectivity between people, things, and services,” said Hanno Narjus, SVP of network products for Teleste.
