Onninen and Genexis win Finnish FTTH contract

Finnish network solution provider Onninen, and FTTH home gateways company Genexis , have won a tender for the delivery of gigabit residential gateways in Finland.

The tender for the project was a joint initiative by five local Finnish networks including Utakuitu, Kairan Kuitu, Siikaverkko, Pyhanet and Lupinet. Together, they have commenced with a roll-out of at least 2,600 connections in 2014.

For this rollout, they have selected the Genexis Platinum Gigabit residential gateway with a combo port uplink.  Onninen, prolonged partner of Genexis in Finland, acts as logistics and support partner towards the local networks.

'The public tender process was initiated by the regional networks to bundle volumes and gain a competitive edge. The key elements to win the tender were product performance and price,' said Timo Nikulainen, sales director for telecoms at Onninen Finland.

'Because of our long-term partnership with Genexis, we could quickly offer the right product. Their recently released Platinum gateway bundles a powerful set of residential features for the right price. On top of that, the product is easily accepted by end-users due to its unobtrusive product design.'
