Waystream signs frame agreement with large Danish operator to upgrade existing customer connections


Swedish tech-company Waystream, a provider of switches for fiber and city networks, has signed a frame agreement with a large Danish operator to upgrade existing customer connections.

The first order is expected in early 2020 and means that Waystreams new access switch ASR8048 will be used to replace existing equipment from another vendor. Using the ASR8048 it is possible to offer services up to 10Gbit/s speed on each connection.

The ASR8000 is Waystreams new flagship product that was launched in the summer of 2019. It comes in models with 24 or 48-ports 10Gbit/s for connection of residential and business customers in city networks.

The model series also supports extended temperature range. When combined with superlowpower optics the ASR8000 has among the lowest power consumption figures on the market, which also makes the solution a smart climate choice.

The new network built with Waystream switches will also open up for other service providers through wholesale of connections. The Danish market is dominated by a few larger service providers but by introducing wholesale higher penetration rates are expected for the fiber network.

Waystreams vision is a global network that connects every home, every business and every human because by communicating we bring the world closer, and enable progress that makes society better.

Waystream creates network products fit for FTTH that are reliable, easier to operate and delivers great services. This means that the network can be built faster with better return on investment, more satisfied end-users and a more robust solution.
