ADVA has announced that Quickline has deployed its FSP 150 aggregation solution to offer high-speed residential and enterprise services across the hardest-to-reach areas in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
The innovative new network utilizes 5G wireless and FTTP for the last mile. Combined with ADVA’s MEF 3.0-certified 100Gbit/s technology, this enables Quickline to rapidly expand the delivery of ultra-fast, highly available broadband to more remote locations across the region.
Temperature-hardened and simple to deploy, ADVA’s compact edge solution provides pre-activation testing and features the highly accurate synchronization capabilities vital for 5G services. ADVA’s partner, Nomios, played a key role in the deployment, planning and designing of the new infrastructure as well as providing project management, network management services and ongoing support.
“Our mission is to give customers access to gigabit-capable broadband in the hardest-to-reach rural areas of the UK. To do that, we’ve harnessed the most advanced aggregation device and taken an innovative approach to last-mile connectivity. By leveraging the flexibility and power of ADVA’s FSP 150 to link our 5G-based services to PoPs, we can deliver lightning-fast broadband to more rural communities than ever before,” said Sean Royce, CEO of Quickline. ”Working with trusted and proven partners such as ADVA and Nomios with their strong customer-first ethos was also important to us in our decision making.”
Supported by the Building Digital UK program, Quickline’s expanded network is helping to connect some of Britain’s hardest-to-reach places. Built on the high-density ADVA FSP 150-XG400 Series, the infrastructure enables 100Gbit/s connectivity in the national network as well as the distribution of the highly precise phase and frequency synchronization needed for 5G. For smaller nodes, Quickline has also deployed the FSP 150-XG100Pro Series. Both solutions bring together a rich set of programmability and security features contained within a compact and environmentally hardened case. What’s more, with 24/7 monitoring from Nomios, any faults can be proactively identified and rectified with minimal impact on end users.
“We’re pleased to be supporting Quickline with its goal of offering high-speed internet to those living and working in underserved areas. With more people than ever working from home, it’s vital to close the digital divide and ensure that families and businesses can benefit from the same high-quality services as those in urban areas,” commented Hartmut Müller-Leitloff, SVP of sales, EMEA at ADVA.
“Our FSP 150 family of carrier-class packet devices is the perfect fit for Quickline’s expanding network. Designed to deliver high-density transport, aggregation and demarcation of 5G and MEF 3.0 CE services, our solutions ensure fast and reliable fixed-line or wireless connectivity. We’re looking forward to helping Quickline continue to grow with support from us and our partner Nomios.”
“Homes and businesses now expect and depend on fast, reliable broadband. That’s why Quickline is harnessing our expertise with ADVA’s packet edge technology to build a new high-speed residential and enterprise network. The opportunity for strategic growth is now firmly in place with the ability to scale services at the edge and extend reach to customers in hard-to-reach locations. This has been achieved in a highly reliable, time- and cost-efficient way,” said Richard Butcher, MD of UK&I at Nomios. “With our monitoring service, ongoing management, maintenance and training, Quickline is well prepared for the future. Working together, Nomios and ADVA helped Quickline to combine their 5G technologies and best-of-breed access solutions, creating an extremely innovative and efficient network architecture that will deliver on present day and future customer expectations across Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and beyond.”
