Polish operator Vectra has signed a frame agreement to acquire more than 1000 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 telecommunication operator in Poland with a cable network of almost 2,800,000 homes. The company offers its customers with 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 their subscribers.
“With their 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 their E8 node helps us transform our network in a reliable and future-proof manner” stated 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 practical functionalities. For example, the node features a universal control that ensures its optimal performance by automatically aligning gains and levels of amplifier stages.
“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”, stated 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.
