Swedish Utility Extends FTTH Network Using PacketFront Equipment

  • FTTH
STOCKHOLM - Swedish utility company Dala Energi, which operates municipal FTTH networks that serve more than 2,000 customers in the cities of Leksand, Rättvik, Gagnef and Säter, announced that it plans to extend its network in the municipality of Säter. For the expansion, Dala Energi has ordered PacketFront’s ASR5000 Access Router. The entire network is controlled by BECS, PacketFront’s control and provisioning system. BECS is a shared platform and is managed by a communications operator.

Pär Wikström, head of urban networks for Dala Energi, says, "We have selected the PacketFront solution in order to deliver state-of-the-art technology using fiber to the home in our municipalities to our customers. In addition, we have chosen a direct approach with PacketFront, and we are very pleased with this new partnership and the possibility to benefit from their skills and knowledge of networking solutions - both now and in future projects. We are looking forward starting our gigabit-to-the-home rollout in 2012 in close collaboration with PacketFront."
