Iskratel, the European provider of broadband access solutions, has announced its partnership with French telecommunications engineering company Telenco Distribution as it continues to expand its activity in the French market.
As part of the new partnership, Telenco Distribution will provide Iskratel’s full range of innovative GPON solutions for future-proof upgrades of Fibre-To-The-Home (FTTH) networks across France. This will enable Telenco Distribution to meet the demands of some of France’s leading telecom players, as well as the rising demand for ultra-fast broadband across the country.
“Our company is extremely proud to have concluded this distribution agreement with a leading European partner such as Iskratel,” said Manuel Panart, CEO of Telenco Distribution. “This new offer allows Telenco distribution to provide its major customers with new products and dedicated technical support and is fully in line with our diversification strategy.”
The collaboration comes as the French Government sets out its ambitious plan – Plan France Très Haut Débit 2013-2022 (PFTHD) – which aims for all households to have access to broadband speeds of 30Mbps or more by 2022, of which 80 per cent should be supplied by fibre to their property.
“Telenco Distribution is the French-leading distributor of telecom equipment for technicians and fibre optic/copper networks,” said Laurent Conrad, Commercial Director at Telenco Distribution. “In the context of the French high-speed broadband plan, Telenco Distribution has built a global offering of passive materials and equipment for technicians and network maintenance dedicated to operators and network installers named ‘Axe Fibre’. The partnership between Telenco Distribution and Iskratel gives a new dimension to Telenco’s ‘Axe Fibre’ offering.
