Ericsson brings FTTH to Indian homes

Along with property management services provider Radius Synergies, Ericsson is connecting homes in India to a breadth of high-end data, TV and communications services through its fibre technology.

In a 3000-unit complex near New Delhi, residents are enjoying personalised IPTV in high-definition, video-on-demand and other advanced entertainment services. They can download data content at 100Mbps and access Wi-Fi in the complex's common areas and gardens. Automated lighting, electricity bill payment and security services are also being made possible with Ericsson's high-speed fibre access solution, including Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON).

Ericsson's broadband access network is an open network solution enabling residents to select services from an internet service provider of their choice.

Demand for broadband services is quickly growing in India's dynamic market, and Gowton Achaibar, president, Ericsson India and Sri Lanka, predicts that adoption of Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) technology will be dramatic.

"Real estate developers and property management companies realise that high-speed broadband access in the home is a value-added differentiator," Achaibar says. "Gratifying user experience, greater convenience and a large and rapidly growing telecom market are all pointers to the immense potential of GPON in India."

The end-to-end fibre access solution from Ericsson includes EDA 1500 GPON system, which offers the highest capacity on the market, as well as Micronet and Ribbonet air-blown fibre and microcable solutions. The contract also covers implementation, systems integration, consulting, training and support services for Radius synergies.

The GPON network enables converged services for consumers, allowing for a range of operator offerings—including voice, data and video, as well as services such as connected-home activation, security and lighting control—delivered over Ericsson's deep fibre access network.
