Iskratel tests its new generation Combo PON OLT with Telekom Slovenije

The path for the critical upgrade of fiber optic networks to next-generation PON broadband has been facilitated by the successful trial of the Iskratel Lumia C16 for Telekom Slovenije, the national telecommunications operator in Slovenia.

Iskratel also announced that its compact Combo PON (XGS-PON and GPON) optical line terminal (OLT) has been successfully tested by several operators. Suitable for both urban and rural population densities, the Iskratel Lumia C16 is ideal for meeting different end-user needs, from a typical residential quad play (broadband Internet access, television, telephone and wireless service delivery) to most demanding residential; from SOHO to mobile backhaul.

Iskratel’s OLT portfolio includes a comprehensive fiber access offering of GPON, XGS-PON and Combo PON technology to meet the migration needs of various operators. At the forefront of the portfolio, Iskratel Lumia C16 is a unique Combo PON OLT that offers an exceptional level of versatility and flexibility for GPON and XGS-PON deployments. The Iskratel Lumia C16 is energy efficient and aligns with Iskratel’s overall environmental strategy, actively contributing to the reduction of energy consumption and associated greenhouse gas emissions.

Mitja Štular, PhD, Board Member, Head of Technology at Telekom Slovenije
At Telekom Slovenije, Slovenia’s leading service provider, we are leading the way with the introduction of 10 Gbps Fibre-To-The-Home (FTTH) communications. In addition to improved data rates and capacities, we are also looking to take advantage of the flexibility offered by Combo PON OLTs. We recognize Combo PON technology as a catalyst for merging and unifying FTTH access networks. In addition to providing services to residential and business users, the unified network will also connect base stations for mobile communications – not only 5G, but also future mobile generations.

Mitja Golja, Broadband Business Development Manager of Iskratel
We are pleased to see the benefits of our Combo PON OLT recognized by one of the most comprehensive communication service providers in the region. Iskratel Lumia C16 will allow Telekom Slovenije to continue its path towards next generation access networks.
