Russian telco Comstar has announced that the Southern branch of its regional operation has started the upgrade of its data transmission network, by migrating cable access subscribers in Taganrog to fibre-optic. The company plans to upgrade its network in 13 districts of the city, and to replace the network infrastructure and equipment used by over 30,000 subscribers. The upgrade will see users migrate from DOCSIS (Data over Cable Service Interface Specifications) to fibre-to-the-building (FTTB) technology.
Mikhail Monastyrsky, director of the Southern branch of Comstar-Regions commented: ‘Network upgrade and migration to the new data transmission technology will provide our subscribers with access to high quality and high speed internet and cable TV services. Besides, following the migration, subscribers of the DOCSIS network will be able to use additional services that have already become very popular in other cities of our presence, as well as internal network resources’.
