Teleste at ANGA COM 2013: Teleste launches DOCSIS Access Hub to ensure capacity in broadband networks

Press release

Teleste’s new solution ensures broadband capacity for customers and secures operators’ services

TURKU, FINLAND – 29 May 2013 – At ANGA COM 2013, Teleste, a leading provider of video and broadband technologies and related services, will introduce its DOCSIS Access Hub, which will extend the IP network over the existing coaxial cabling inside apartment buildings. Based on Data over Coax (DoC) technologies, the DAH is a cost-effective and competitive solution that makes it possible for operators to ensure network capacity and quality of service for all network subscribers. ANGA COM 2013 takes place in Cologne 4-6 June 2013. Teleste welcomes you to learn more and visit us at the stand E19.

With the growing popularity of streaming video services like Internet TV, consumers today demand very high bandwidth and fibre-level connections to their homes. The challenge for operators is to guarantee customer satisfaction by providing sufficient network capacity to all network subscribers without unwanted service outages. Bringing fibre connections to individual homes would solve the problem, but this is far too expensive to be economically viable in the older apartment buildings throughout Europe. With Teleste’s DAH, operators can bring high-speed connections to customers by utilising the existing coaxial cabling inside apartment buildings — at a considerably lower cost compared to using fibre all the way and with the ability to guarantee sufficient connection speeds for all subscribers.

Teleste’s DAH is an access network hub that makes it possible to deliver signals from RF and fibre networks to individual customers via coaxial cabling. As the only European manufacturer of this technology, Teleste utilises Broadcom's C-DOCSIS EoC cable TV architecture solution, which allows Teleste’s DAH to support broadband speeds of close to 1 Gbps downstream and 160 Mbps upstream. Based on the distributed CMTS architecture, the DAH provides operators with a cost-effective and agile way to upgrade network capacity; one hub can serve all customers in an apartment building and provide them with sufficient bandwidths to receive any video streaming services. Being compact, rugged and robust, the hub can be installed either inside or outside the building, and customers can easily be connected to the hub via just one input and one output connector. The DAH also supports a wide variety of low-cost consumer modems.

Reliable high-speed broadband connections ensure consumer satisfaction and create a stepping stone for operators to develop their own over-the-top, Video on Demand, and live TV services. With Teleste’s DAH, the level of services can be extended even one step further; by supporting an allocation of resources for each individual service subscriber, the DAH also allows operators to answer increasingly specific and customised consumer needs.
