(NASDAQ: ZHNE), a global leader in FTTx network access solutions, today announced that Swedish service provider, GavleNet, has chosen to upgrade its network through installation of Zhone's MXK for VDSL2. Based in Gavle, Sweden, GavleNet provides Internet access to residential and business customers, as well as campuses, in the region. Following the equipment upgrade, approximately 3,500 customers will receive access to advanced high-speed Internet services. When upgrading its platform, GavleNet needed equipment that supported both ADSL and VDSL2. Zhone's MXK met this need while also providing multi-service capabilities and a platform that could easily be upgraded to fiber. This was essential since GavleNet's long-term focus was on eventually deploying full fiber access in the area through Active Ethernet (AE) or GPON. "Zhone's innovative and adaptable solution allowed GavleNet to upgrade its current infrastructure while also providing opportunity for future upgrades through fiber," said Stefan Stexgård, strategist and product manager at GavleNet. "Another major advantage is that the MXK eliminated the need for additional metro network equipment through the 10G uplink options. This represents a big investment savings opportunity for GavleNet and helps us significantly decrease our operational expenditure in parallel." "Zhone's flexible portfolio of products and solutions enabled GavleNet to provide its customers with reliable, state-of-the-art services and increased bandwidth," said Brian Caskey, chief marketing officer at Zhone Technologies. "It's a truly scalable solution that has proven to be adaptable to GavleNet's unique requirements, while also improving overall cost-efficiency for GavleNet." Zhone continues to provide innovative access solutions, delivering voice, video and data services over copper and fiber.
