TURKU, Finland -

- A Significant RFoG Deployment Brings Fibre-to-the-Home for the French Energy and E-communications Group SIEA

Teleste Corporation, an international technology group specialised in broadband video and data communication systems and services, has been chosen to supply optical access network equipment to SIEA (Syndicat Intercommunal d'energie et de e-communication de l'Ain []), a public body of inter-municipal cooperation that manages energy and e-communication for the 419 municipalities included in the French eastern region of Ain.

Teleste has won the first phase in the public tender by SIEA to bring high speed data connections to parts of the department of Ain that have little or no access to high speed internet. The aim is to build a public broadband network that covers more than 90% of homes and businesses in the region by 2014. Learn more about the project Li@in (Liaison Internet de l'Ain []).

During 2013, Teleste will deliver optical access network equipment to serve a customer basis of 45,000 potential network subscribers. The value of the first phase deployment is approximately 2 million euros, and it also includes an option to continue equipment deliveries during the phase 2. The estimated value of the second phase deliveries is 1.5 million euros, and it will possibly be confirmed by the end of 2013.

Teleste's advanced solution is one of first significant implementations in Europe, in which RFoG (Radio Frequency over Glass) technology will be used to provide DOCSIS based data services for customers in classical Fibre-to-the-Home (FttH) networks. Replacing the coax portion of the hybrid fiber coax (HFC) network by a single-fibre passive optical network (PON), the RFoG technology opens up new business opportunities for operators especially in areas where coax network is not available. With the RFoG technology, operators are able to increase network capacity in a cost-efficient way, utilizing their existing provisioning and billing systems, as well as the traditional HFC network equipment.
