Israel’s Partner Communications taps Adtran for 10G FTTP build

April 3, 2023
The mobile network operator and broadband services provider is beefing up its fiber to the premises (FTTP) network, which currently passes almost 1 million homes, to enable more multigigabit services.

Adtran says it will supply 10-Gbps optical line terminals (OLTs) to Israel’s Partner Communications. The mobile network operator and broadband services provider is beefing up its fiber to the premises (FTTP) network, which currently passes almost 1 million homes, to enable more multigigabit services.

The Adtran systems feature the company’s Combo PON technology, which is designed to enable a smooth transition from GPON to XGS-PON. Partner Communications will be able to provision a mix of GPON and XGS-PON services simultaneously across the same fiber infrastructure using a single access port, thus improving network efficiency, says Adtran.

“There is competition across our market in Israel. It’s imperative that we can offer higher internet speeds and deliver them quickly. We already see high market demand for our multigigabit service tiers. Adtran’s solution simplifies our network operations, lowering our cost to scale fiber broadband,” commented Yaniv Bar-Gil, head of fiber infrastructure division at Partner Communications. “Adtran also offers a high level of customer support that we cannot find with other solution vendors. The team works hard to understand our unique challenges and helps us address them quickly so we can focus on delivering the best experience to our subscribers.”

“Like many service providers, Partner Communications needed the ability to rapidly deploy efficient FTTH technologies with open architectures to increase their service velocity while lowering operational cost. Our open and disaggregated fiber access solution creates networks with greater simplicity, sustainability, and scalability,” asserted Ronan Kelly, CTO of EMEA and APAC regions at Adtran. “We’re providing a highly differentiated, multi-vendor, multi-technology platform that delivers the high-speed broadband services needed to attract new subscribers, launch new services and enter new markets.”
