Teleste receives recognition in the 2020 Diamond Technology Reviews

TURKU, FINLAND – 2 October 2020 – Teleste, a leading provider of broadband network solutions and related services, announced today that its intelligent 1.2 GHz node, the ACE8, was recognized among the best in the industry by the 2020 Broadband Technology Report’s Diamond Technology Reviews­. The stellar third-party judging panel included executives from operators such as, Buckeye, Comcast, Charter, Cox, Mediacom, Rogers, Spectrum and Suddenlink, plus well-known industry consultants with vast professional experience.

Teleste received the recognization with its ACE8 intelligent fiber deep node supporting mid- and high-splits, as well as frequencies up to 1.2 GHz.

“I like this node for MDU applications. It could be a uniform product for MDUs and Hospitality networks across all markets and various bandwidth capacities. The HMS or DOCSIS transponder is a very valuable feature for monitoring, alignment and troubleshooting,” commented one of the judges.

ACE8 is a cost-efficient solution for providing high-speed broadband services to versatile use cases and networks, such as multi-dwelling units and other access networks. Superior performance and features such as remote management and electrical controls have already made it trusted and widely deployed by major European operators. We are proud about the recognition given to the node by Diamond Technology reviews and are thrilled to bring the ACE8 to the North American cable broadband markets,” stated Rami Kimari, Teleste’s Vice President of HFC Networks.

ACE8 node helps operators mitigate operational expenses because it requires no onsite maintenance visits. All settings in the node, including output level control and slope adjustments, can be managed remotely, as ACE8 does not contain plug-ins that would require truck rolls. Although the same functionality as separate plug-ins enable is included in the ACE8, this functionality is integrated and fully electrical.  The node can also be managed locally through a wireless BT connection, giving operators increased flexibility in field operations.

ACE8 includes an ingress switch in the RF port and assists in locating and isolating ingress sources in the network, and its automatic controls keep the output level constant and downstream/upstream alignment precise. Furthermore, the node features a power-saving functionality; for example, low channel load can be used to balance the node’s power consumption. In power-save mode, this technology lowers power consumption by up to 30% per product. On a larger scale, this means lower operating costs for the network and a smaller CO2 footprint.
