Elisa and Vecima Supercharge Cable Network with DAA to Deliver Gigabit Access to Subscribers in Finland

Share

Vecima Networks Inc. (TSX: VCM) announced today that leading Finnish telecommunications operator Elisa has deployed Vecima’s EntraTM Remote MACPHY solution to evolve its network with a next-generation Distributed Access Architecture (DAA). The solution enables Elisa to deploy gigabit broadband and new service experiences to residential subscribers – detached homes and multi-dwelling units – and businesses. In addition, moving to DAA delivers sustainability through digitalization, enabling substantial energy savings.

In Finland’s highly competitive broadband market, Elisa brings highly innovative solutions to its subscribers. Vecima’s Entra DAA solution boasts flexible access node configurations, a cloud-based access controller, multiple video delivery options, and highly scalable capacity. As Elisa looks to maintain its market-leading position, Entra is well matched to forward-looking, strategic architectural plans.

“We are committed to offering our customers the best possible internet experience,” said Antti Salonen, Head of Technology for Fixed Networks at Elisa. “By deploying the Entra solution, we can move our cable access network to the next generation with higher capacity, new service offerings and automated network operations. Vecima’s unique DAA solution provides a flexible and efficient way to leverage our existing IP network to expand to new areas without the increased costs of additional headend equipment.”

To take advantage of untapped, latent capacity in Hybrid Fiber Coax (HFC) networks, the cable access network must be rearchitected and simplified to eliminate analog/RF transmission, replace, or digitize legacy video, and optimize operational costs. Once deployed, a Distribution Access Architecture increases network capacity and performance, lowers total cost of ownership, and reduces power consumption.

The Vecima SC-1D Entra Access Node offers a Remote MACPHY Device in a compact, European form factor. Elisa will deploy the SC-1D managed by the Vecima Entra Access Controller (EAC), which provides centralized control and leverages software-defined networking principles to pave the way for a platform capable of delivering faster connections to end users.

‟As cable operators contend with changes in the competitive landscape, and ever-growing demands for greater capacity and performance, we see growing momentum in the move to DAA,” said Ryan Nicometo, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Vecima’s Video & Broadband Solutions business. “Elisa is building one of the most innovative DAA deployments in the world, and we’re proud to help enable their strategic vision.”
