CyberNet deploys Ericsson FTTH system

26 Mar 2008

Ericsson and Bangladeshi ISP Grameen CyberNet have signed a contract for delivery of a fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network based on GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) technology. The move will allow Grameen CyberNet to provide advanced broadband services, such as games and video-on-demand services, to its customers. Under the agreement, Ericsson will deliver central office optical equipment and devices for the home based on its EDA 1500 GPON products, plus infrastructure such as cables. Grameen CyberNet is a joint venture of Grameen Fund, the venture capital arm of Grameen Bank, and ITC firm CITech. Another Grameen Bank subsidiary, Grameen Telecom, is a shareholder in Bangladesh’s largest mobile network operator GramenPhone.
