TeliaSonera selects Cisco solution to boost cable footprint

21 May 2014

TeliaSonera has selected Cisco to increase bandwidth across its entire cable footprint in Finland, Broadband TV News reports. The introduction of the Cisco Remote-PHY solution will enable TeliaSonera to increase broadband service bandwidth for all subscribers, including those in sparsely populated areas, without extensive capital or operational expenditure. ‘In a competitive environment, the ability to offer high speed services to all our subscribers and connect those who previously were unable to access premium broadband services is a key differentiator,’ commented Sakari Kangasvieri, cable network manager at TeliaSonera Finland Oyj, adding: ‘Through our work with Cisco, we are transforming our network to provide better services for our subscribers and address our operational and capital expenditure.’
