Keymile Wins German Broadband Deal
HANOVER, Germany -- In Halle, Germany, broadband network operator Antennenbau Muth has built an optical fibre network using KEYMILE’s multi-service access platform MileGate. It can now supply around 30,000 subscribers. As a result, these customers will receive ultra-fast broadband access based on cutting-edge technology.
Nowadays, similarly to electricity and water, broadband access is a basic need. Furthermore, fast Internet access is also an important factor when businesses are choosing bases, particularly in a university town like Halle. Local network provider Antennenbau Muth, a Muth Group company, set up its own urban network in various parts of the town in several phases. To do so it's been using KEYMILE's multi-service access platform MileGate for several years. FTTB, or Fiber-to-the-Building, is a key aspect of the project. Existing copper infrastructure is then used in the buildings themselves. By the end of 2013, the broadband-network operator will supply 30,000 subscribers in Halle town centre with a comprehensive portfolio of telephony, Internet and TV.
MileGate combines broadband access, telephony and data interfaces in one single compact Ethernet/IP-based multi-service access platform. Its very high port-density is another of its outstanding characteristics. Due to its compact design and low power consumption, network operators can deploy MileGate in exchanges, plant rooms or outdoor cabinets. MileGate applies active Ethernet technology to connect subscribers and therefore delivers top bandwidths of up to 1,000 Mbps for each connection. The Ethernet Point-to-Point technology creates the foundations for sustainable network infrastructure. Some of MileGate’s key features are the open management interfaces which enable network operators to integrate the provisioning process into their own processes easily and therefore to connect new customers effectively and cost-effectively.
