TeliaSonera has selected the Cisco Remote-PHY solution, part of the Cisco advanced access architecture, to expand its service and increase bandwidth across its entire cable footprint in Finland.

With an existing installed base of Cisco Cable Modem Termination Systems (CMTS) based on the Cisco UBR 10k, TeliaSonera subscribers already benefit from high-speed broadband access in certain locations. Now, with the introduction of the Cisco Remote-PHY solution, TeliaSonera is transforming its network increasing access network capacity, driving more productivity from its existing CMTS investment and increasing operational efficiency. With its new solution, TeliaSonera will be able to increase broadband service bandwidth for all subscribers, even those in sparsely populated areas, without extensive capital or operational expenditure.

Sakari Kangasvieri, Cable Network Manager, TeliaSonera Finland Oyj, said: “In a competitive environment, the ability to offer high-speed services to all our subscribers and connect those who previously were unable to access premium broadband services is a key differentiator.” He added, “Through our work with Cisco, we are transforming our network to provide better services for our subscribers and address our operational and capital expenditure.”
