JT Group Ltd (JT), the incumbent communications enabler based in the Channel Islands, has selected active equipment provider Genexis for the delivery of optical home gateways. They have commenced with the roll-out of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) to all 42,000 premises on Jersey (see “Jersey Telecom connects customers in FTTH trial”).

JT said it chose Genexis’s FiberXport product family for its ability to deliver high-quality services up to a gigabit speed. The flexible character of this product enables JT to operate a superfast FTTH network with a range of service offerings to all homes and businesses on the island of Jersey. The first JT Global customers are already experiencing subscriptions ranging from 2 Mbps through 100 Mbps to a full 1 Gbps.

“The Genexis FiberXport home gateway has enabled JT to deploy a wide range of services to our end-customers, including gigabit internet and high-quality telephony services,” said Simon Vivian, head of the gigabit program, JT. “Genexis’ dedicated knowledge of FTTH technology, intelligent support, and a worldwide proven track record, makes them a reliable active equipment partner for our broadband deployments.”

Currently, JT is activating connections using the FiberXport product family. The gigabit home gateway is equipped with four Ethernet ports and integrated voice-over-IP.

“JT has a hands-on and forward-thinking approach on FTTH rollout, which fits well with Genexis’ vision on next-gen broadband deployment,” said Ron van Os, director of sales and marketing at Genexis. “JT shows a dedicated belief in fiber, by directly removing all installed copper cables during the fiber roll-out. This, combined with a long-term ambition reaching further than just the island of Jersey, makes JT a strong partner for Genexis.”

Genexis is working alongside technology partners Cisco, NetAdmin, and Dimension Data on this project.
