Iskratel, a leading European broadband solutions provider, and Belgian service provider Ulysse Group have partnered to deploy a 10Gbps fibre broadband network in Liege. Iskratel is providing a complete XGS-PON access solution including Optical Line Terminals (OLTs) and CPE, while Iskratel will supply its SI3000 Lumia XG8 compact 1U XGS-PON OLTs, as well as its Innbox X22 ONTs and Innbox E80 home gateways in dual-box setup at customer premises to provide 100% guaranteed Service-Level Agreements (SLAs) to Ulysse’s customers. Users will have the ability to fully exploit Ulysse’s infrastructure of data centres, physical or virtual servers, cloud infrastructure, security, voice services, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and other applications, and will have access to broadband services via the wholesale model, with data rates up to 10Gbps.
‘We are delighted to work together with Iskratel, a responsive and trusted partner that we can rely on in the most demanding of circumstances and our collaboration outlines the growing ambition to offer 10Gbps broadband access to our direct and wholesale customers,’ said Gauthier Delfosse, Managing Director at Ulysse Group. ‘We strive to remain at the forefront of technological developments and continue to build on our past triumphs such as being the first provider to offer SDSL, provide Ethernet fibre technology for the last mile, and integrate services with network security in Belgium.’
