Iskratel and AVM announce successful interoperability of their flagship GPON products

Kranj, Slovenia and Berlin, Germany, 29 January 2019 – Iskratel, the leading European vendor of broadband solutions, and AVM, the leading manufacturer of broadband devices for DSL, cable, LTE, and fibre optics in Germany and Europe, today announced successful interoperability of Iskratel’s OLT with AVM’s ONT.

Having already proven interoperability back in 2011, two major European vendors again joined forces with their flagship GPON products: Iskratel’s SI3000 Lumia and AVM’s FRITZ!Box 5491. SI3000 Lumia exhibits market-leading density, scalability and interoperability, and is world’s first dual-nature PON OLT, enabling operators a smooth migration to fully virtualised software-defined broadband solution.

Kristijan Melinc, Global Sales Director at Iskratel comments: “Our superior fibre-access platform again proves its versatility and compliance to operate with the leading ONTs in the market. Furthermore, successful interoperability with AVM’s ONT marks an important milestone in creating a complete portfolio to respond to increasing demand for high-speed broadband access in Germany.”

With the FRITZ!Box 5491, AVM offers a powerful all-in-one device for internet, telephony, home networking and smart home at GPON connections. Fast gigabit LAN and dual-band wireless LAN ac/n with mesh technology ensure optimal networking. For convenient HD telephony, the FRITZ!Box for GPON incorporates a telephone system with answering machines, an integrated DECT base station for up to six cordless telephones, and connection options for analogue, ISDN and IP telephones. Smart-home functions based on DECT round out the full range of features.

"Our FRITZ!Box for GPON works excellently with Iskratel's Lumia OLT platform. Together, we can offer users a high-performance offer for high-speed fibre-optic connections," adds Kai Allais, Sales Director International/Provider at AVM.
