Kontron has announced it has signed a contract with fibre network provider, Speed Connect Austria, to provide its range of Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) products and solutions to a number of households in Austria.
The contract, between Speed Connect Austria and Kontron Transportation for Iskratel optical broadband products delivery and deployment services of their Open-Access Fibre-to-the-Home network in Austria, has been signed in June 2023 at Kontron Transportation’s headquarters in Vienna.
Many households and companies in Austria will have faster Internet access thanks to the Iskratel broadband products developed and manufactured in Europe by Slovenia’s Kontron, a Kontron group company and sister company of Kontron Transportation. The implementation work started at the end of June 2023 and only one month later the first households, companies and municipalities in Lower Austria will be connected to the next-generation optical broadband network.
“We are happy to contribute to a faster Internet access for many households in Austria. With our long year experience as system and service integrator, we make the end-to-end project realisation and we put all puzzles together to integrate to best-of-breed network solutions,” said Richard Neussl, VP CEE-DACH-INDIA Mission Critical Networks at Kontron Transportation.
“Our advanced XGS-PON access solution including Optical Line Terminals (OLTs) and Optical Network Terminals (ONT) from Iskratel broadband product family, combined with networking equipment and services from our IT Infrastructure portfolio, will play a crucial role in providing Speed Connect’s customers with faster and more reliable Internet access across Austria,” said Svjetlana Kalaba, Executive Director Business Unit Broadband at Slovenia’s Kontron.Click below to share this article
