Monaco Telecom picks Huawei D-CCAP platform to better manage broadband access networks

12 Nov 2014

The Principality of Monaco’s incumbent fixed line operator Monaco Telecom has selected Chinese vendor Huawei Technologies to supply it with its proprietary ‘distributed converged cable access platform’, or D-CCAP, to enable the telco to better manage its broadband access networks. The carrier’s existing infrastructure, which combines fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) and hybrid fibre-coaxial (HFC) technologies, will support services from 100Mbps to 1Gbps as part of an upgrade project, it says. To date, Monaco Telecom has employed a dual-platform approach for its high speed broadband deployment to contain CAPEX costs: HFC in older properties and FTTH in new-builds. However, increased complexity within its networks has slowed service delivery requiring the Huawei D-CCAP to better manage the two networks, with an eye toward converging them in the longer term.
