A central European cable and satellite operator has successfully completed the testing of a hybrid last-mile broadband solution combining Iskratel’s GPON technology and Teleste’s DOCSIS-based mini-CMTS.
TURKU, FINLAND – Teleste Corporation will deliver optical headend products to Turkish cable and satellite operator, Türksat. The deliveries will be carried out during 2018 in cooperation with Teleste’s local partner, Telco İletişim Teknolojileri. The deployment will strengthen Teleste’s position as a provider of network products and technologies in the area.
Broadband and video systems specialist Teleste has worked with Iskratel to develop a proof of concept solution for the delivery of triple-play services that combines Iskratel’s GPON hardware with Teleste’s DOCSIS-based mini-CMTS (cable modem termination system), called the DOCSIS Access Hub (DAH).
