Dutch Provider KPN Selects PacketFront Gigabit ONTs

  • Ericsson
  • FTTH
  • Reggefiber
STOCKHOLM - KPN, the incumbent telecom provider in the Netherlands, selected PacketFront's gigabit network termination units for its large-scale fiber-to-the-home rollout. The units, which KPN has been deploying since August, are supplied through Ericsson, which manages KPN's access network.

PacketFront's MC901 unit provides fiber-to-copper termination at the customer premises and is designed to fit the Universal Fiber Termination Unit that is standard throughout the Netherlands. The MC901 is simply clicked onto the Universal FTU at the premises for every customer that subscribes to KPN’s fiber-based services. It supports seamless migration from 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps services.

The Universal FTU was introduced in 2010 by Reggefiber, which builds and operates fiber-to-the-home networks throughout the Netherlands. Though KPN owns about a 40 percent share in Reggefiber, KPN is only one of several service providers that use the network. Because vendors such as PacketFront can design customer-premises equipment that attaches easily to the interface, the Universal FTU reduces service providers' costs of provisioning new customers or upgrading their services.
