Integan chooses Teleste for 1.2GHz upgrade

Cable technology outfit Teleste has been chosen as a vendor for cable network operator Integan’s upgrade project in Belgium.

The agreement covers the deployment of 700 of Teleste’s AC8810 intelligent 1.2GHz nodes, which will be delivered during the next two years, starting in September 2018.

Owned by the local municipalities in the area of Antwerp, Integan takes care of a cable network with about 250.000 homes passed.

The deployment of 1.2GHz nodes will further strengthen Integan capabilities as a provider of higher speed data transmission over DOCSIS 3.1 across its cable infrastructure, according to Teleste.

The frame agreement value is estimated to be about €1 million.

“We chose the Teleste AC8810 optical node because it integrates seamlessly with our exiting HFC network resulting in minimal installation cost. Our experience with other Teleste products showed us their superior reliability. We expect the AC8810 optical node to have a positive impact on our operational cost and customer satisfaction,” said Jan Arts, head of HFC Network operations at Integan.

“We are very pleased to cooperate with Integan to harness their network with future-proof capacity capabilities. During our previous collaboration we have learned to appreciate their long-term experience and knowhow of the cable industry, combined with their innovative approach that makes it possible to address future challenges in a practical and agile way,” said Rami Kimari, vice-president of HFC Networks for Teleste.
