Teleste at Cable Congress: Teleste Launches Intelligent Networks Concept
TURKU, Finland, March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
INTELLIGENT NETWORKS CONCEPT TO SLASH CABLE NETWORK OPERATING EXPENSES BY UP TO 50
At the Cable Congress 2012, Teleste Corporation, a leading provider of broadband video
and service platforms, will introduce its new Intelligent Networks concept. With
Intelligent Networks, Teleste is addressing a major pain point for cable operators:
constantly increasing operating costs. The Intelligent Networks concept consists of
intelligent network equipment that can auto-adjust itself and be remotely monitored and
configured, and management software that controls all the devices in a cable network.
According to Teleste’s research, intelligence can significantly reduce on-site maintenance
and lower operating expenses by up to 50 percent.
With constantly increasing capacity demands, broadband network operators need to
invest heavily both in new network equipment and the maintenance of their networks.
“Manual maintenance has traditionally been the main reason for high operating expenses
in cable networks. We believe that it doesn’t have to be. By adding intelligence to the
network both on the device and management system levels, maintenance and management can be
automated. This translates to savings that are nothing short of remarkable. According to
our research, moving to intelligent network architecture can reduce operating costs by 50
percent. In a medium sized network of 120 000 users, this translates to 10 million euro
savings over 15 years,” said Hanno Narjus, SVP, Video and Broadband Solutions, Teleste.
With up to 50 percent reductions in operating costs, payback times for moving to
intelligent network architecture are typically less than 3-5 years.
In Teleste’s Intelligent Networks concept, network intelligence is built on the
combination of automatically configuring intelligent fibre optic nodes and amplifiers, and
a management system that allows operators to control the whole network and remotely
address problems. Teleste Access -series nodes and amplifiers provide a firm basis for
realising the concept in conjunction with Teleste CATVisor software dedicated for network
By utilizing intelligent network devices and management software, operators can reduce
OPEX and service outages, provide better service to end-users and eventually reduce churn.
