Telefunken Communications has partnered with Pace-owned Aurora Networks to launch fibre-based fast internet services in Germany.
Telefunken said that residential and commercial customers in select communities in Rhineland-Palatinate will be able to take advantage of the new services.
Telefunken started construction work earlier this year and activated its first residential customers early last month – who can now enjoy internet services with speeds of up to up to 150Mbps.
They will soon also be able to sign-up for telephony, digital TV and interactive on-demand services, while business customers will soon be able to sign-up for advanced capabilities, including data rates up to 250 Mbps.
Aurora Networks is supplying its Unified PON (Passive Optical Network) portfolio for the service.
This includes high-density and outdoor-hardened chassis platforms, the industry-leading Node PON technology, a comprehensive range of ONTs for both residential and business applications, and its AurOS software solution for DOCSIS Provisioning of EPON (DPoE).
“We focus on providing fiber-optic based high-speed broadband services in Germany in areas unserved and underserved with other terrestrial networks like ADSL and Coax-cable,” said Hardy Heine, Telefunken Communications’ head of marketing and sales
“Our clear target is to become a leading player and preferred partner for communities in our market. Significant for our expansion strategy in Germany are partnerships with other competent key players in the industry, such as Aurora Networks, so that we can provide our customers with a range of cutting-edge services with the highest quality.”
Aurora Networks is exhibiting at ANGA COM in hall 10.1, booth Q9.
