STOCKHOLM -- PacketFront, the world leader in FTTH technology and next generation broadband aggregation, and leading total broadband solutions provider and systems integrator Industria today announced that they are working with Magnet Networks, a wholly owned subsidiary of global private equity investment company Columbia Ventures Corporation, to help build Europe’s most sophisticated broadband network in Dublin, Ireland. The fully automated open-access network is based on PacketFront’s broadband solution and Industria’s self-service portal and billing system.

The solution for the Dublin network is set up jointly by PacketFront and Industria. The network is based on PacketFront’s fully automated broadband solution, and Industria’s OSS operational support system for implementing advanced broadband billing strategies and a portal for advanced self services.

Industria is currently deploying the network, including video head-end for interactive digital television. At the same time, the company is offering local households a comprehensive selection of triple-play and other broadband services, including home security, video-on-demand and on-line gaming.

“Our goal with this project is to build the most sophisticated broadband network in Europe for Magnet Networks in Dublin,” says Industria CEO Gudjon Mar Gudjonsson. “This triple play deployment should be a role model for other broadband operations where the innovation and service level to the end user is high and operational cost is low.”

“We are providing Magnet Networks with a broad range of solutions, both turnkey and tailor-made, for transforming the concept of digital living to a reality, for its domestic and commercial subscribers,” says Industria CEO, Gudjon Mar Gudjonsson.

“This includes the laying of fibre cable to homes and other premises, and the implementation of broadband systems, software solutions and digital media content for the company’s programming and video-on-demand services.

“At the same time, we are also providing Magnet Networks with an on-going range of marketing and support services, including training for local workers in the laying of future fibre optic cabling and the provision of content and solutions for the range of groundbreaking new services the company plans to launch in the coming weeks and months.”
