Press release

TURKU, FINLAND – 11 February 2019 – Teleste Corporation will continue the deliveries of optical headend products to Türksat A.Ş., the leading satellite and cable operator in Turkey. Extending the headend optics deployments last year, the new deliveries will again be carried out in cooperation with Teleste’s local partner, Telco İletişim Teknolojileri, and they will take place during the course of 2019.

We appreciate that our long-term customer Türksat decided to continue with us and Telco Iletişim Teknolojileri in carrying out their network upgrades. We are pleased to see that excellent support and firm commitment to the customer’s success have helped us achieve business continuity and strengthen our brand in Turkey and nearby areas”, shared Rami Kimari, Vice President of HFC Networks for Teleste.

The deliveries to Türksat A.Ş. continue with high-density products in Teleste’s HDO family of headend optics designed to offer operators a reliable, easy-to-operate and versatile solution for optical data transmission. To drive savings in power consumption and ensure that the requirements of the high-density installations are met in a future-proof manner, the focus of the deployment is set on Teleste’s dual DWDM transmitters released in 2018.

“We look forward to continuing with Teleste to provide the best-of-the-breed products and support for our customer Türksat. The ongoing network upgrades are in a substantial role in ensuring that Turkish consumers will be able to enjoy the latest broadband services and usage trends”, noted Ender Kumustekin, Sales Director at Telco İletişim Teknolojileri.

The HDO platform represents Teleste’s continuous development of technologies and products that offer our customers cost-effective network capacity with high service availability. The compact equipment saves space in headends and hubs, and yet it provides excellent efficiency and functionality. The proven family is a competitive choice for operators to provide broadband, narrowcast and broadcast services in digital and analog formats, and today, the family also fully meets the requirements for DOCSIS 3.1 networks.
