Liberty Global Selects Teleste’s Distributed Access Solution

Teleste announced that Liberty Global, a converged video, broadband and communications companies, will test Teleste’s Distributed Access Architecture to support its GIGAbit network, meaning customers will benefit from increased reliability and capacity thanks to the new DOCSIS technology.

Already used successfully in Coventry and Warrington in the United Kingdom, distributed-access architecture (DAA) is being rolled out in Baguley, U.K. DAA is a way of building DOCSIS networks and is being trialed to allow the data core and edge devices to bring data and video services to Liberty Global customers in a real operational environment at speeds of over 1Gbps.

Teleste has worked closely with the engineering teams of Liberty and Virgin Media during the last year to integrate the technology, which is designed to improve the performance of Liberty Global’s Access network – the network used in the last mile between technical facilities and customers’ homes. This – will provide customers with a more reliable service and better experience. It also delivers more capacity efficiency, allowing Liberty Global to deliver wide-scale Gigabit speeds quickly and more cost effectively.

It is powered by converged interconnect network technology which digitizes the access network, and will replace traditional analogue transmission in this space.

DAA is at the foundation of building Liberty Global’s GIGAbit network and by working with Teleste, Liberty Global can increase the capacity and quality of their DOCSIS network, bringing faster connections to its customers.
