VANCOUVER — Lite Access Technologies, a provider of fiber optic products and advanced installation methodologies, announces that it has signed a contract with Carillion telent to help support and deliver Openreach Superfast Cymru fiber rollout in Wales. Openreach is a functional division of telecommunications company BT Group and services, supports and maintains the wiring, fibers, and connections which link millions of homes and businesses throughout the UK to their communication providers' networks.

Carillion telent is one of the United Kingdom's leading network installation businesses and Openreach's main delivery partner for the management, maintenance and upgrading of BT's fiber broadband network. Carillion is dedicated to providing and transforming the way support is delivered to Openreach and has been engaging directly with the sub contractors who provide the service to carry out the civils work. Carillion telent has rationalized Openreach's supply chain, from five regional suppliers to Carillion telent as the single national service provider.

Taking on Additional Projects

Following Lite Access' successful involvement to meet and exceed project requirements on a fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) network installation project for a major UK telecom service provider in Wrexham, the company was asked to ramp up and provide additional teams to carry out similar works for Carillion telent working on behalf of Openreach. The scope of work primarily encompasses Lite Access' FTTP installation as part of Carillion telent's £1.5 billion ($1.76 billion) engineer deal with Openreach (BT) for England and Wales announced in February 2017 and will also allow Lite Access to diversify into all aspects of telecoms work activities.

"We look forward to working with Carillion telent to support Openreach in delivering its objectives for further enhancing the services it provides for its customers," stated Mike Plotnikoff, CEO of Lite Access. "The UK is a critical market for Lite Access and our strategic partnership with Carillion telent is a transformational event for our company."

Mr. Plotnikoff continued, "This is further affirmation of our operational accomplishments with yet another prime contractor in the UK harnessing our world leading fiber installation methodologies. We have just scratched the surface of the opportunity in the UK and I'm confident in our market leading technology to successfully unlock the next chapter of growth for Lite Access."
