NASHUA, N.H. -- PacketFront, the world leader in open access fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) technology and next generation broadband aggregation, has signed a frame agreement with OpenNet, the communications operator to leading Swedish real estate company, Svenska Bostäder. Worth 40 million SEK ($5m USD), the agreement comprises 20,000 Swedish households and will run over the next two years.

Since 2003, OpenNet has been supplying broadband services to Svenska Bostäder, it has a vision of delivering open access broadband networks, which offer competition and freedom of service choice to its 30,000 households. The frame agreement with PacketFront is to supply fibre to the homes, and enable tenants to easily choose the providers they want for triple play services.

At the heart of PacketFront's solution is BECS(tm), the award-winning control and provisioning system, as well as PacketFront's access routers(ASR) and customer premises equipment (CPS). BECS makes it possible for operators to build and run fully automated broadband networks with self-provisioning capabilities. These capabilities give users the option to choose services for themselves without having to wait for a third party to make the changes.

"Now that we are expanding our network, we are very excited about going into partnership with PacketFront," said Calle Norberg of OpenNet. "We hope to extend this co-operation with PacketFront in the future, enabling us to offer more and more Swedish households the ability to choose the best priced and most custom-tailored solutions available."

"The services offered by operators are of increasing complexity and the need for automation and provisioning mirrors this development," said Per-Olof Stark, VP Sales, EMEA City Carriers at PacketFront. "Using PacketFront's technology, our clients can continue to offer more and more complex services, while we help them lower their operational expenditure (OPEX)."
