Ericsson connects India's homes with high-speed fibre

In a 3000-unit complex near New Delhi, residents are enjoying personalised IPTV in high-definition, video-on-demand and other advanced entertainment services

Telecom company Ericsson has said that its fibre technology is connecting homes in India for the first time to a breadth of high-end data, TV and communications services.

"In a 3000-unit complex near New Delhi, residents are enjoying personalised IPTV in high-definition, video-on-demand and other advanced entertainment services," the company said. "They can download data content at 100Mbps and access wi-fi in the complex's common areas and gardens. Automated lighting, electricity bill payment and security services are also being made possible with Ericsson's high-speed fibre access solution, including gigabit passive optical network (GPON)."

According to Ericsson, the GPON network enables converged services for consumers, allowing for a range of operator offerings--including voice, data and video, as well as services such as connected-home activation, security and lighting control--delivered over Ericsson's deep fibre access network.

The end-to-end fibre access solution from Ericsson includes EDA 1500 GPON system as well as Micronet and Ribbonet air-blown fibre and microcable solutions.

Demand for broadband services

The company is doing this through an agreement with Radius Synergies, one of India's leading in-building management solution companies, it said. The contract also covers implementation, systems integration, consulting, training and support services for Radius synergies.

Commenting on this development, Gowton Achaibar, president, Ericsson India and Sri Lanka, said demand for broadband services is quickly growing in India's dynamic market.

He predicts that adoption of fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) technology will be dramatic. "Real estate developers and property management companies realise that high-speed broadband access in the home is a value-added differentiator," Achaibar said. "Gratifying user experience, greater convenience and a large and rapidly growing telecom market are all pointers to the immense potential of GPON in India."

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
