Belgian service provider Ulysse Group, is to deploy a fibre optic broadband network in Liège, Belgium.

The broadband network will provide services to thousands of residential and enterprise users in Belgium, and the provider has partnered with Iskratel for its XGS-PON access solution including Optical Line Terminals (OLTs) and Customer-Premises Equipment (CPE). The preparation and testing of the greenfield project were performed in a timely manner, despite the challenges presented from the pandemic. 

Iskratel’s SI3000 Lumia XG8 compact 1U XGS-PON OLTs, Innbox X22 ONTs and Innbox E80 home gateways in dual-box setup have been selected for use at customer premises to provide guaranteed service-level agreements (SLAs) to the group’s customers.

Users will have access to broadband services via the wholesale model, with data rates up to 10Gb/s. The group is focused on extending its networks to better meet evolving consumer demands, Gauthier Delfosse, managing director explained: ‘We are delighted to work together with Iskratel, and our collaboration outlines the growing ambition to offer 10Gb/s broadband access to our direct and wholesale customers.’
