DZS and Orange partner to deliver advanced fibre in Poland

DZS has completed the first phases of a live pilot solution deployment of its flagship Velocity fibre access portfolio within Orange’s production network in Poland.

Orange is the largest Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) service provider in Europe with over 13 million residential, business and campus subscribers. As part of its multi-vendor strategy, Orange continually seeks best in-class partners to meet and exceed the evolving needs of its growing residential, business and mobile customer base.

“DZS was given the opportunity to become part of our ecosystem, and we are working closely with them to meet our expectations from today’s 2.5 Gigabit Passive Optical network (GPON), 10G (XGS-PON) and point-to-point technologies; in a context of heterogenous situations coming from the diversity of countries where we operate”, said Gilles Bourdon, Vice President of Wireline Networks and Infrastructure, Orange.

DZS Velocity Optical Line Terminals (OLTs) are environmentally hardened across the entire portfolio and offer extensive flexibility ranging from 1 rack unit (RU) 2-slot fixed access systems to 16-slot chassis systems. Complemented by system-on-a-card technology that is common for all systems, DZS Velocity empowers service providers with multiple options to address current and emerging deployment and service demands in their network by leveraging next-generation PON and point-to-point solutions via any service port across the range of DZS systems, including stackable options.

Gunter Reiss, Chief Customer Officer, AEMEA, DZS, said: “As operators across Europe and the world continue to invest in FTTH, DZS innovation and alignment with industry standards can help forward-thinking leaders like Orange achieve the benefits of multi-vendor flexibility while minimising operational spend and maximizing service quality, new service delivery and user experience.”

DZS offers a portfolio of access edge, subscriber edge, optical edge, and AI-driven cloud-based solutions that deliver strong subscriber experience coupled with ease of deployment and low operating costs. For both existing network transformations and new deployments, DZS technology empowers operators to provide gigabit and/or multi-gigabit services today, while laying a future-ready foundation for in-place upgrades to low-latency 50/100-gigabit capacity when needed. DZS platforms and software are standards-aligned, with proven interoperability and manageability in multi-vendor environments.
