Liberty Global-backed Belgian cable operator Telenet has signed up Finnish technology outfit Teleste to supply optical network products as part of an upgrade project to install 1.2GHz capable equipment in the optical section of the access network.
Under the agreement Teleste will supply optical transmitters from its HDO product range and optical nodes from its AC product range. The equipment will enable the delivery of new broadband services based on the DOCSIS 3.1 standard.
Teleste said that the agreement has a substantial value and investments will be fulfilled over a period of three years. The agreement is an extension to a previous framework agreement with Telenet.
