Teleste has announced it is to supply Belgian operator Integan with 700 AC8810 intelligent 1.2 GHz optical nodes, to be delivered over the next two years, starting in September 2018 as part of Integan’s network upgrade. The frame agreement is estimated to be worth around €1 million. The deployment of  the1.2 GHz nodes further strengthens Integan capabilities as a provider of higher speed data transmission over DOCSIS 3.1 across its cable infrastructure.

Integan’s says its public bidding process was based on price and product performance as well as delivery and support capability. The company has a long tradition within the cable industry and today it is focused on managing and developing a high-quality cable network, meeting the consumers’ constantly growing demands for faster and more reliable connectivity.

Jan Arts, Head of HFC Network operations at Integan says,“We chose the Teleste AC8810 optical node because it integrates seamlessly with our exiting HFC network resulting in minimal installation cost.” He added, “We expect the AC8810 optical node to have a positive impact on our operational cost and customer satisfaction.”

Teleste’s AC8810 is an intelligent, dual active output node with upstream segmentation. Supporting DOCSIS 3.1 frequencies, the node offers greater capacity performance and redundancy. As it is possible to adjust performance and power consumption according to the RF load and output level, the AC8810 is also economical to operate.

Owned by local municipalities in the Antwerp area, Integan manages a cable network with around 250.000 homes passed.
