Ericsson and Radius Infratel sign FTTH agreement

27 Jul 2010

Indian fixed broadband infrastructure provider Radius Infratel has inked a deal with Swedish vendor Ericsson for what the latter claims is its largest fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) contract in the country to date. Under the terms of the agreement Radius says that some 600,000 households will gain access to the highest capacity speeds available in the Indian market, with Ericsson providing its EDA 1500 GPON (Gigabit-capable Passive Optical Network) system and passive fibre portfolio. Radius will use the technology to provide an open access, single integrated infrastructure, with customers able to access downlink speeds of up to 100Mbps, IPTV and other bandwidth-intensive services from multiple operators over a single fibre connection. Commenting on the deal HS Singh, managing director of Radius, noted: ‘Ericsson’s GPON solution has enabled our Neutral Access Network Operation (NANO) concept that facilitates various operators in delivering their bandwidth rich applications like IPTV, multimedia contents etc and accommodates various building management and home automation services. With this path breaking alliance, we are committed to redefine the broadband experience in India.’ The agreement between the two companies will also see Ericsson provide systems integration, consulting, training and support services.
