Andorra Telecom deploys Trident7 for FTTH network

Andorra Telecom has deployed the Trident7 PON system from Aurora Networks in a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network that supports 52,000 subscribers.

Andorra Telecom has deployed the Trident7 PON system from Aurora Networks in a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network that supports 52,000 subscribers. The network will be based on GE-PON.

The carrier apparently has cranked the dials on the Trident7 to 11; at the time this article was being written subscribers were treated to average download speeds of 37.10 Mbps, according to the Net Index provided online by Ookla. That put Andorra a close second behind Taiwan for fastest average download speeds worldwide.

“Providing our customers with access to high value services is our priority. Being top of this list just reinforces that we are going in the right direction,” said Jaume Salvat, director general, Andorra Telecom. “With its flexibility and scalability, Aurora Networks’ Trident7 platform has provided us with the opportunity to deliver today’s advanced services with the quality of service and experience our subscribers have come to demand.”

“Andorra Telecom’s selection of the Trident7 platform was the perfect solution to meet the requirements needed to accommodate both the projected growth of IP-based services, and the increasingly available high definition content," said John Dahlquist, vice president, marketing, Aurora Networks. “By deploying fiber-to-the-home, Andorra not only found ways to give subscribers what they want, they also found ways to reduce their capital and operational expenditures.”

Aurora Networks acquired the Trident7 product line from Enablence Technologies in August of 2011 (see “Aurora Networks buys Trident7 PON line from Enablence Technologies”).
