Iskratel, the leading European provider of broadband access solutions, and Spanish broadband specialist Cabelec have teamed up to develop a new solution for ITM Global.

Cabelec will utilise Iskratel’s GPON Optical Line Terminals (OLTs), alongside its passive infrastructure, to deliver a GPON-based optical LAN solution. As an expert in the design, configuration, monitoring and maintenance of solutions for a range of industries, ITM Global will install the solution for one of its customers in the hospitality sector, Hotel Los Castros, and plans to replicate the deployment for other customers in the hospitality sector in the future.

Designed to simplify the traditional multi-tier switching architecture, Iskratel’s GPON solution will be deployed to replace the active Ethernet switches with passive optical devices in the network of Hotel Los Castros, enabling the hotel’s network to support ultrafast downstream and upstream speeds. Acting as an alternative to traditional active networks, the solution will enable cost-effective and efficient upgrades of the network to meet the demand for gigabit broadband, enabling the hotel to deliver bandwidth-consuming Ultra-High Definition (UHD) content, Voice-over-IP (VoIP) and internet data services.

Luis Miguel Gonsalez Martin, Technical Director, ITM Global
Cabelec, in partnership with Iskratel, developed an alternative solution which simplified this process significantly, enabling us to achieve our goals and upgrade our customer’s networks to meet future service demands.

Miguel Rodriguez Baron, Technical Director, Cabelec
By combining our proven experience in building and deploying high-performance networks, with Iskratel’s innovative products and solutions, we have provided ITM Global with an end-to-end solution which will enable their customers to upgrade their infrastructure to next-generation networks.
