Tilgin (News - Alert), a provider of home gateway solutions for multiplay and next-generation broadband access, announced it has received an initial order for deploying fiber access network for a leading operator in South Eastern Europe.

The company, Tilgin’s systems integrator partner, will deploy a national Fiber access network of remotely managed IP-based services.

Initial order value is approximately 3 MSEK (approx$ 0.45M)

The deployment includes Tilgin's Home Gateway (News - Alert) solutions for fiber connectivity (FTTx) and Tilgin's VCM software for service and device management. The deployment is scheduled for late 2010.

With this network, the operator will be able to deliver a state of the art triple play solution enabled by Tilgin’s Home Gateway platforms that include both field-based software and hardware, company officials said.

Tilgin said the operator is implementing a Fiber-to-the-Building solution with a 100 Mbit/s Ethernet connection to the customers through the Tilgin Home Gateway. It will feature Tilgin’s gateway management software HGA to connect the households’ telephones, computers and TVs.

Tilgin’s HG1300 and HG1500 Home Gateway families will be used both in Ethernet and in point-to-point fiber networks. These home gateways are built on a high performance platform with wire speed routing.

With wire speed routing capability, the operator will be able to deliver an extended portfolio of service-rich broadband services and applications to their end-users’ homes, the company said.

The operator plans to roll out full triple play services including high-speed broadband connectivity, IP-telephony and IPTV (News - Alert) in the initial stages of deployment, according to Tilgin.

Citing a market research from Infonetics, Tilgin officials say the market for deep fiber access solutions (fiber to the home/building or “FTTH/FTTB”) will expand rapidly over the next years as indicated by this operator’s choice of technology and decision to invest in next generation access technologies.

Earlier this year, Tilgin and Ericsson offered a solution to Superonline, a subsidiary of Turkcell (News - Alert), to provide households in Turkey with high-speed Internet connections and IP Multimedia System or “IMS” based IP-telephony, TMCnet reported.
