Teleste has been selected as a vendor of optical nodes for Vectra, a leading telecommunications operator in Poland. The frame agreement between the companies consists of more than 1,000 of Teleste’s E8 1.2 GHz optical nodes, which will be delivered to Vectra by the end of Q1 2020.
Vectra is the second largest telecommunications operator in Poland. The company offers its customers services including cable television, broadband Internet access – fixed and mobile – as well as fixed and mobile telephony. With Teleste’s E8 node, Vectra is upgrading its cable infrastructure to DOCSIS 3.1 data transmission capacity in order to guarantee the future availability of services such as high-speed Internet, VOD and online TV for its subscribers.
“With its high product quality and proven track record as a vendor of DOCSIS 3.1-compliant network products, Teleste was able to meet the requirements of our network upgrade. We trust that the combination of high performance and user-friendly features of its E8 node helps us transform our network in a reliable and future-proof manner,” said Bartłomiej Irzyński, CTO of Vectra.
Supporting DOCSIS 3.1 frequencies, Teleste’s E8 is a compact optical node platform offering advanced technical features, outstanding performance and innovative, yet practical functionalities. The node features, for example, a universal control that ensures its optimal performance by automatically aligning gains and levels of amplifier stages.
“We are pleased to support Vectra in the development of its cable infrastructure. In the highly competitive cable market, excellent product quality is certainly one of the major prerequisites for meeting consumers’ demand for more and more Internet speed and increased service reliability,” said Rami Kimari, Vice President of HFC Networks for Teleste.
Besides optimal performance, the E8 node helps operators cut down operational costs over time by automatically ensuring correct alignment and reducing consumption of power through the innovative power save technology. Another practical feature in the E8 is the lid that can be opened from either side or removed altogether, thus making the node user-friendly and easy to install in various spaces.
