The focus of the cooperation is the marketing of the open access business model, based upon PacketFront’s solution, via the newly founded HeLi NET consulting company, City2020 Consulting. “Through the City2020 fibre deployments in Hamm, Kamen and Lünen, we have become familiar with PacketFront’s solution and value their products,” says Thomas Wald, HeLi NET’s CEO. “PacketFront is absolutely our first choice for the implementation of future-proof and low investment risk fibre networks.”
Specifically the municipalities and local companies in Germany will benefit from the combined expertise, as Wald explains: “As a municipality-owned company and based upon our successful City2020 projects, we understand the organisations and decision-making processes required to implement fibre projects. The operation of open access fibre networks provides the highest profitability and value. PacketFront’s solution delivers the basis for this.”
“We are very pleased that we can use our long-standing and international experience in support of Heli NET as well as in marketing the open access business model. PacketFront is working on international projects as well as at a local community level and consequently we are very familiar with the demands and requirements of municipalities in order to deliver a customised solution”, explains Hubert Schanne, CEO of PacketFront.
The Swedish company is the world's leading system vendor for FTTH (fibre-to-the-home) broadband networks. PacketFront has developed solutions for the implementation of fully automated fibre networks since 2001.
PacketFront’s broadband solution distinguishes itself due to the award-winning control and provisioning system, BECS. BECS makes it possible for operators to build and run fully automated broadband networks with self-provisioning functionality “on-demand”. This provides end users with the opportunity to increase capacity and choose services themselves, without having to wait for a third party to carry out the changes.
