Jersey Telecom selects Genexis for full-scale FTTH deployment

November 29, 2012

JT Group Ltd (JT), an innovative telecom provider and incumbent communications enabler based in the Channel Islands, has selected active equipment provider Genexis for the delivery of optical home gateways. They have commenced with the roll-out of fibre to the home (FTTH) to all 42,000 premises on Jersey.

JT has chosen Genexis’ FiberXport product family, for its ability to deliver quality services up to a full Gigabit speed. The flexible character of this product enables JT to operate a super-fast FTTH network with flexible service offering to all homes and businesses on the island of Jersey. The first JT Global customers are already experiencing subscriptions ranging from 2 Mbit through to 100 Mbit to a full Gigabit.

“The Genexis FiberXport home gateway has enabled JT to deploy a wide range of services to our end-customers, including Gigabit internet and high-quality telephony services,” says Simon Vivian, Head of the Gigabit Programme, JT. “Genexis’ dedicated knowledge of FTTH technology, intelligent support and a worldwide proven track record, makes them a reliable active equipment partner for our broadband deployments,” Mr. Vivian adds.

Currently, JT is activating connections using the FiberXport product family. This Gigabit home gateway is equipped with 4 Ethernet ports and integrated Voice-over-IP.

“JT has a hands-on and forward-thinking approach on FTTH rollout, which fits well with Genexis’ vision on next-gen broadband deployment,” says Ron van Os, Director of Sales & Marketing at Genexis. “JT shows a dedicated belief in fibre, by directly removing all installed copper cables during the fibre roll-out. This, combined with a long-term ambition reaching further than just the island of Jersey, makes JT a strong partner for Genexis. We are confident we will successfully continue this collaboration in the years to come,” Mr. Van Os adds.

Genexis is working alongside technology partners Cisco, NetAdmin and Dimension Data on this project.
