Technologies and Products

ICT provider Iskratel, has debuted its SI3000 Lumia C16 Optical Network Terminal and Optical Line Terminal (ONT / OLT) products and services at the Gigabit Summit in Hessen, Germany. Compactly designed, the SI3000 Lumia C16 is network processor-based, meaning that the functions and performance parameters can be set in microcode, allowing for a high level of interoperability, allowing network operators to provide XGS-PON and GPON end-users with high-speed Internet services with just one deviceAlso, new debugging tools such as network tracing and the integrated, OMCI-compliant analyser will make network monitoring easier.

Iskratel’s Patrick A. Zuncke, Head of the Munich branch said, “The booming economy in the USA and China as well as the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic on global supply chains are causing bottlenecks in Europe. With the ComboPON OLT SI3000 Lumia C16, network operators are optimally positioned so that no new hardware for fibre optic networks have to be purchased when demand increases.”

In addition to details about the SI3000 Lumia C16, participants of the Gigabit Summit heard about Iskratel’s products and the services for setting up modern fibre optic networks. Both the ComboPON OLT SI3000 Lumia C16 and the Innbox CPE series are expected to be in high demand in Germany, an estimate, says the company, supported by the first testing activities that Iskratel is currently carrying out in collaboration with selected German network operators.

Zuncke added: “This is a promising start shortly after we opened our branch in Munich. I am confident that we will complete the tests successfully and thus significantly increase our market share in Germany.”
