Telia taps Teleste for DAA upgrade

Telia DAA Teleste

Nordic telco Telia has tapped Teleste to implement a Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) to expand coverage of its ultra-high-speed broadband services.

Telia is targeting providing increasingly higher broadband speeds and greater data transfer capacity to consumers, which is supported by Teleste’s technology. Rollouts of the DOCSIS 3.1 Distributed Access-based broadband are currently under way in Telia’s networks, and Teleste’s Remote PHY Distributed Access devices have already been widely implemented in Finland and Norway.

Teleste, which has been a leading proponent of DAA, says that adopting the technology can enable operators to make a sustainable choice to deliver higher download and upload speeds and improved service quality to their subscribers over their existing coax infrastructure.

Teleste’s devices for Telia include the company’s DAN3 and DAN300 Remote PHY Distributed Access nodes that fully ensure interoperability with different CCAP cores. By converting a 10 gigabit IP connection into 1.2 GHz full spectrum, high-quality coax-based data transmission, these nodes enable operators to meet consumers’ growing demands for faster broadband connectivity, according to Teleste. The Distributed Access architecture can adapt to even higher broadband speeds in the future, making it a crucial step in the evolution path to 10 Gbps subscriber services that are on the horizon, the company says.

“Teleste’s Distributed Access technology provides us a future-proof solution that perfectly meets our evolving technology requirements. We appreciate the wide industry interoperability that their products offer, as well as their easy integration with our existing environment. Together with Teleste’s high level of commitment and 24/7 support, this allows us to efficiently enhance our network capabilities and provide our customers with a better quality of service,” said Per Eirik Furebotten, Manager, Broadband Access, Telia.

“The advantage of the Distributed Access technology lies in its ability to transmit modern, ultra-high-speed broadband connectivity without minimal or no need for rebuilding. The technology is mature and ready to scale for future needs. We are excited to be Telia’s partner to enhance their network capabilities, and committed to providing them with the best support and services for an efficient upgrade,” said Olli Leppänen, Vice President of Distributed Access for Teleste.
