TeliaSonera selects Ericsson to enhance fixed broadband network

Ericsson to offer EDA 1200 based on VDSL2 technology and related installation services

By CBR Staff Writer

TeliaSonera has selected Ericsson to upgrade its fixed broadband access network to offer businesses and consumers media services such as high-definition TV, live video streaming and online gaming.

Mikael Backstrom, head of Ericsson Nordic and Baltics, said: Operators’ decision to move from ADSL to VDSL2 is in line with consumers’ need to get more bandwidth at home. Combining the strength of its fiber access with existing copper access is an effective and fast way to deliver nationwide high-speed broadband.

Under the agreement, Ericsson will offer EDA 1200 based on VDSL2 technology and related installation services. The contract includes Sweden, Denmark and Norway. Deployment starts in Sweden and will run over the next 12 months.

The company claims that its VDSL2-based technology opens up new opportunities for operators to provide customers with high-speed broadband services. It enables operators to extend their fibre connections into existing copper, and helps maximise the reuse of the existing. infrastructure.

Ove Alm, senior vice president of TeliaSonera Networks, said: Enhancing our fixed broadband network will meet the booming demand for bandwidth. By boosting the speeds in both our fixed and mobile networks, our customers will be able to reach their personalised services irrespective of where they are and what device they are using.”
