Enablence Technologies Inc., a leading supplier of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) equipment for triple-play residential and business services and optical components and subsystems for access, metro and long-haul markets, announced today that it has been selected by TUTOR, a French network provider, for the continuation of a fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) deployment in 86 SIPPEREC-member municipalities in and around Paris, France. Furthermore, TUTOR has also selected the Enablence TRIDENT7TM platform to support the roll-out of FTTP triple-play services in the City of Bitche, in northeastern France.

TUTOR will purchase Enablence’s TRIDENT7 Universal Access Platform Optical Line Terminals (OLT), Optical Network Terminals (ONT), and Element Management System, to deploy a Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON). This network will enable TUTOR to provide full triple-play services that can deliver up to 100 HDTV channels, ultrafast internet service and low-cost internet-based telephone service in 86 SIPPEREC regions, representing approximately 1.7 million customers, as well as in the City of Bitche, for 8,000-10,000 subscribers.

“Enablence is the superior choice for this project based on its advanced TRIDENT7 FTTH solution and wealth of experience in residential and commercial municipal deployments of FTTH worldwide, and especially successful in European PON deployments,” said Joel Peron, President Directeur General (CEO) of TUTOR.

“TUTOR is an important network provider in France who is deploying the next generation optical network for its customers and we are proud to have been selected by them to provide the equipment for all the GPON deployments,” said Arvind Chhatbar, CEO of Enablence. “Our end-to-end solution and our expertise with network deployments of this type, position us to offer the most flexible and advanced solutions to a leading-edge network provider such as TUTOR, that is planning to offer its customers the best there is in broadband solutions, and we hope to continue serving them as they expand further in France.”
