Sweden's IP-Only Selects Alcatel-Lucent for New FTTx Network

  • IP-Only
  • Maintrac
Stockholm/Paris - IP-Only, an independent wholesale broadband provider in the Nordic region, has selected Alcatel-Lucent's Point-to-Point Ethernet technology for a new FTTx network. The network – to be built by Maintrac, Alcatel-Lucent’s channel partner in Sweden - will bring ultra-broadband access connectivity to homes and businesses across Sweden.

IP-Only will use the network to increase its market share in the wholesale market by leasing bandwidth of up to 1 Gbps to regional media and services providers, government organizations and large enterprises throughout the country.

Key Facts

  • IP-Only is investing in a new point-to-point fiber network for homes and businesses across Sweden. A point-to-point network provides a dedicated fiber connection to each customer and is capable of delivering high-speed, high-quality broadband services.

  • IP-Only has selected Alcatel-Lucent’s Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM) solution with the Access Management System. The ISAM has the capacity and flexibility to converge business and residential services on the same network and supports an upgrade path to next-generation fiber technologies to protect the investment.

  • Maintrac, Alcatel-Lucent’s channel partner in Sweden, will provide network integration and project management services for the deployment.

  • Under The Shift Plan, Alcatel-Lucent’s industrial strategy to become a specialist vendor of IP Networking and Ultra-Broadband Access, advanced fiber access technologies such as those being provided to IP-Only form a core part of the company’s development focus, enabling more and more service providers to easily transition to superfast broadband services in response to rising residential and business demand.

“With 22 percent of Swedish households already enjoying broadband over fiber there are high expectations in our marketplace to be met," said Mikael Westerlund, CTO of IP-Only. "It’s important for IP-Only to have a solution that we can rely on not only in terms of performance but also in terms of flexibility and reliability to meet our ambitious growth plans in wholesale business and residential services. Alcatel-Lucent’s FTTP technology enables us to expand our coverage and gives us a platform on which to develop new offers.”
