SKM Skyline and Iskratel aim to create a partnership

Munich and Kranj, March 2011 – SKM Skyline, a fully controlled daughter company of the euromicron Group, and Iskratel, the Slovenian manufacturer of active network components, are planning a successful cooperation.
The two companies have decided to develop a strategic partnership, beginning with the German-speaking territory. Both companies have agreed to invest in manpower, training and products. In this territory the joint sales activities will involve additional active and passive FTTH solutions for selected customer groups since a joint architecture will be made available.
"Our customers will benefit from an outstanding, complementary, product and solution portfolio", said Torsten Gross, the SKM Skyline Managing Director.

Focus on city-carrier, public services and power suppliersMr Gross expects public services, city-carriers or local power suppliers to be potential customers, making use of their consulting and support activities with regard to FTTH activities. SKM Skyline’s portfolio already includes their own innovative products in the area of a passive FTTH infrastructure – from the Central Office System eFOS to the wall socket.

"In SKM Skyline, Iskratel has found the right partner in the field of new FTTH project development in the DACH area. We are convinced that this partnership will enable us to successfully present Iskratel’s FTTH competencies", said Boštjan Žerovnik, Iskratel’s Sales Director for Western Europe.

Iskratel boasts a rich product portfolio, starting with the SI3000 Lumia Intelligent Access Platform as an interface between the operator and the FTTH User & Service to the Innbox CPE family with the Fiber Termination Unit for further in-house wiring and communication, a connection between the last mile and the customer’s home. SKM Skyline GmbH is a daughter company of euromicron AG.

As a distributor we are internally and externally independent of the manufacturers. For the benefit of our customers and partners, SKM Skyline is using the product advantages of other manufacturers in the market as well as the products, consultations and other services provided by our associated companies.
