OAKLAND, CA — Telecom Namibia (TN), headquartered in Windhoek, Namibia, will deploy Zhone's MXK and several additional Zhone services to provide its customers with advanced voice and broadband services. TN, which currently serves more than 145,000 customers, runs the largest digital telecommunications network in Namibia. TN will use Zhone's MXK solution to implement Active Fiber and Copper Access solutions to renovate and update its telecommunications infrastructure.

TN has launched a project to introduce fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and fiber-to-the-building/basement (FTTB) technologies into its network in order to offer innovative and cost effective broadband services to its residential and business customers in Namibia. The company turned to Zhone with hopes of providing fiber and copper-based access solutions to 150,000 lines over the next three years.
In addition to introducing new fiber solutions, TN aims to replace its existing voice and data systems by using Zhone's MXK ubiquitous Access Solution, providing GPON, Active Ethernet in addition to ISDN basic rate interface (BRI), to migrate all existing voice services into a nationwide IMS solution (IP multimedia subsystem). This allows seamless integration of mobile and fixed networks into the existing copper-based network. The operator will also consolidate its mobile backhaul solutions and time-division multiplexing (TDM) leased lines over an MXK access system, delivering advanced broadband performance.

In addition to GPON and active Ethernet, Zhone's MXK will also provide Telecom Namibia with POTS, ISDN BRI, ADSL2+, VDSL2, G.SHDSL.bis with EFM capabilities.

TN is owned by the Republic of Namibia and is considered the national telecommunications operator of the country. Founded in 1992, it functions as a commercialized company and as a subsidiary of its parent company Namibia Post and Telecom Holdings Limited. TN runs the largest digital telecommunication network in Namibia and is a leading supplier of voice, text, data and video solutions.
