Ericsson bags FTTH deal in Bangladesh

Ericsson has signed a contract with the Bangladesh Internet services provider Grameen CyberNet Limited for a fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network based on Ericsson's Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) solution. Ericsson said that under the agreement, the firm will deliver central office optical equipment and devices for the home based on its EDA 1500 solution, plus infrastructure such as fibre systems and cables.

The move will allow Grameen CyberNet to provide its customers with advanced broadband services, such as games and video-on-demand services, according to Ericsson.
