TURKU, Finland, April 18 2019 — Teleste has been selected as a vendor of optical nodes for Fluvius’ network upgrade project in Belgium.

With the deliveries taking place by the end of 2021, the frame agreement consists of more than 750 of Teleste’s AC8810 intelligent 1.2 GHz nodes, and its value is estimated to be approximately €1.1 million ($1.24 million).

Owned by 14 intermunicipal companies, Fluvius is the largest multiutility operator that offers its services to homes or workplaces through a network of pipes and cables throughout the Flanders region in Belgium. The company took care of a cable network with approximately 500,000 homes passed in 2018, and it is now updating the cable infrastructure to ensure the future capabilities in providing high-speed data transmission for the subscribers within its network.

Teleste’s AC8810 optical nodes provide Fluvius with fiber-level data transmission capacity, cost-effective operation, and high redundancy. Fluvius’ public bidding process was based on the product price and evaluation of the technical criteria, including features such as remote ingress switching, power supply, and housing, as well as user-friendly configuration.

Supporting DOCSIS 3.1 frequencies, the AC8810 is an intelligent optical node platform with advanced technical features delivering real customer benefits in terms of capacity performance and redundancy. In addition to its cutting-edge capacity performance, the node is also easy and economical to operate. For example, its power-save technology helps operators reduce power consumption in response to channel load changes in order to achieve lower network operating costs and a smaller CO2 footprint.
