Participating in the urban market means delivering against the insatiable bandwidth demands of modern-day tenants. This can often require delivering services in challenging in-building environments. Consumers want the ability to access multiple 4K video streams, participate in immersive Virtual Reality Multi-Player Games, experience rich media content and access a full-suite of business applications to enable remote working.
ADTRAN’s scalable, flexible 10G solutions and breadth of access technologies including XGS-PON and NG-PON2, make it the ideal partner for carriers such as Community Fibre looking to maximize revenue and service growth potential within the residential and commercial market. By deploying ADTRAN’s XGS-PON solutions via ADTRAN’s fibre broadband platform, Community Fibre will leverage ADTRAN’s market-leading Gigabit experience as it scales services to over 1,000,000 customers in the next four years. With XGS-PON, Community Fibre is able to cost-effectively deliver multi-Gigabit services and avoid premature wear and replacement of network equipment.
Community Fibre has started the process of rolling-out its 10G offering, beginning with the installation of next-generation network technology at the Steel Yard, a leading music venue in central London. As a result, the venue and its patrons will be able to fully benefit from the advantages this market-leading network provides.
“We are seeing tremendous interest for Gigabit and above service offerings, and expect that having the first commercially available 10G service in London will make any building on our network more attractive to bandwidth-hungry tenants looking for a new space to call home,” Community Fibre CEO Jeremy Chelot said. “A 10G service means that our customers have the bandwidth needed to be as connected, entertained and immersed as they could possibly want, and still provide room for emerging automation-based and 5G services that we expect to hit the market in the coming years.”
“Community Fibre is focused on one of the most highly desirable and underserved demographics in the UK and is committed to meet and exceed a level of customer service that is unmatched in the market,” ADTRAN Chief Technology Officer for EMEA and APAC Ronan Kelly said. “Community Fibre has access to our wealth of network, market, planning and technology experience as they plan to aggressively roll out services throughout the UK’s urban markets.”
