DECEMBER 9, 2009 -- TransACT has signed an agreement with the ACT Land Development Agency (LDA) to provide GPON-enabled fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) services to medium-density units (MDUs) along the Flemington Road corridor, which includes all MDU constructions on Flemington Road between Franklin and Harrison and up to Gungahlin in the ACT.

“ACT” refers to the Australian Capital Territory.

The agreement is a first for TransACT, which will allow it to provide GPON-based FTTP services to MDUs on a broad scale.

Working closely with the developers and TransACT’s partners, Corning Cable Systems and Alcatel-Lucent, TransACT will provide FTTP to over 1,800 home units.

TransACT Chief Executive Officer Ivan Slavich said, “This agreement adds to TransACT’s extensive FTTP coverage within the ACT, with many residents already connecting to TransACT’s FTTP in the suburbs of Forde, Crace, Bonner, and Franklin to take advantage of our next-generation services.”

Last month, TransACT launched its new FTTP gateway in Forde, which the company described as “a 100 percent fiber-based, copper-free building.” dedicated to delivering voice, broadband of up to 100 Mbps, IPTV and RF overlay products and services over TransACT’s GPONs.
