May 14, 2019
Brutélé, a provider of television, internet and telecommunication services in Belgium, has implemented Teleste’s next-generation network management software to increase the performance of their network infrastructure.
Brutélé provides television, internet and telecommunication services in Belgium. Since 2006, the company has been developing its VOO brand in partnership with Nethys, an industrial group that pursues a dynamic and diversified policy in the energy and telecommunications sectors. VOO has developed an innovative telecom approach combining television, high speed data, fixed telephone and mobile voice and data services.
Brutélé’s network infrastructure consists of more than 5000 km of coaxial cables and 1500 km of fibre optic cables. Currently, the company’s cable network covers 230,000 subscribers in a territory of 30 municipalities in Brussels and Wallonia.
With the aim of increasing the performance of the company’s network infrastructure, Brutélé implemented Teleste’s next-generation network management software, CATVisor Argus, in 2018. CATVisor Argus is the fifth generation of Teleste’s EMS software. It is a client-server-based multi-user network management system for monitoring, controlling and configuring network elements in a cable network environment. The software supports all of Teleste’s headend and HFC products as well as any third-party product supporting HMS and SNMP protocols.
Currently, Brutélé utilises Argus for the management of approximately 2500 headend devices and over 7500 intelligent HFC nodes and amplifiers, distributed over two separate regions. Additionally, the system is used for service assurance activities of both the company’s network operation centre (NOC) and the field force. For more information and details, read our case study.
Brutélé has also selected Teleste’s most advanced fibre optic products to upgrade their access network infrastructure. Products like the intelligent node AC9100, intelligent amplifiers AC3010 and AC3210, and the fibre transmitter HDO908 offer premium performance and best-of-breed functionality that increases the quality and quantity of data and video services provided within the company’s HFC network. In addition, utilising Argus together with Teleste’s intelligent network devices provides Brutélé with a state-of-the-art solution for proactive network maintenance, to increase service uptime and customer satisfaction while cutting down operational costs and manual maintenance work in the field.
