Comtrend sets precedent in France for cost and time effective solution for FTTH Gateway deployment
Comtrend has been selected by B.A.S.E Technologies as the solution provider for FTTH gateway rollout in Amiens, France. Comtrend was selected over the competition because its solution can be deployed for service upgrade with minimal network change, minimum overhead cost and shorter system downtime.
This first order of GPON is especially significant because while standard industry practice dictates the purchasing of GPON be done in pairs (OLT&ONT), Comtrend, as an ONT provider, was able to overcome this ‘restriction.’
By setting this precedent, Comtrend will now be able to better define product positioning, segmentation, and can plan on making similar proposals to other potential clients.
