Ericsson builds FTTH technology based communications infrastructure for broadband services

Seeing the surging adoption of Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) technology in telecommunication arenas, Ericsson India, along with property management services provider Radius Synergies, has set up FTTH technology based communications infrastructure to provide bundle of broadband services in a 3000-unit complex near New Delhi. Ericsson India is arm of the Swedish provider of telecommunication and data communication systems, Ericsson.       

It is the first time that the fiber technology is used to connect homes to a breadth of high-end data, TV and communications services in India, and Ericsson India is the first company to apply the technology in the project.
The broadband services available for the residents of the complex, through FTTH technology based communications infrastructure, include personalized IPTV in high-definition, video-on-demand, broadband, and other advanced services, such as security services, automated lighting and electricity bill payment etc. The communications infrastructure also facilitates Wi-Fi and high-speed downloads; the users can download data content at 100Mbps and access Wi-Fi in the common areas and gardens of complex.

The high-speed fiber access solution of Ericsson, Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) has made these services possible. The GPON network allows residents to choose internet service provider as per their choice. The GPON network delivers converged services for consumers, including a range of operator offerings - including voice, data and video. The services, like connected-home activation, security and lighting control are delivered over deep fiber access network of Ericsson.

Ericsson has applied its EDA 1500 GPON system in the project. The EDA 1500 GPON system provides the highest capacity and Micronet and Ribbonet air-blown fiber, and microcable solutions. The project also includes providing systems integration, consulting, training and support services to Radius Synergies.

According to Gowton Achaibar, President, Ericsson India and Sri Lanka, the demand for broadband services is growing more and more in India’s dynamic market, where the adoption of Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) technology is expected to grow dramatically. The real estate developers and property management companies have realized that high-speed broadband access in the home is a value-added differentiator.
