Alepo, a provider of network and IT software solutions for global communications service providers, has delivered a major network upgrade to ETB’s fixed broadband network across Colombia.

As part of a three-year transformation process, Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Bogotá (ETB) has successfully launched new communications services, including a Fiber to the Home (FTTH) network, interactive digital television, and 4G mobile services.

To bring its corporate strategic plan to life, ETB selected Alepo to provide a high-performance AAA infrastructure that increases the established network reliability, capacity, and services innovation.
