Cisco has confirmed that TeliaSonera, Sweden’s largest teleco, is deploying a point-to-point fibre network based on Cisco IP Next-Generation Network (IP NGN). The technology makes it possible to deliver symmetrical broadband services of up to 100 megabits per second (Mbps) to homes and businesses.
The Cisco point-to-point fibre-to-the-premises (FTTx) solution makes it possible to deliver new advanced services for consumers and businesses over a single, highly scalable next-generation platform. Such services include multiroom IPTV and video on demand, HD video conferencing and low-latency connectivity for data centres. The new network can scale to deliver symmetrical bandwidths of up to 1 gigabit per second, providing a pathway for future service innovation.
