PŸUR’s German cable broadband network is being improved by CommScope and braun teleCom, through the continuing deployment of CommScope’s end-to-end distributed access architecture (DAA) delivering multi-gigabit broadband speeds.

Tele Columbus AG, a parent company of PŸUR, engaged CommScope and braun TeleCom for its next generation network upgrade. The collaboration between the three companies encompasses a full access network technology migration across Germany.

CommScope is delivering a DOCSIS and DAA end-to-end solution – using its DOCSIS 3.1 technology and Remote PHY DAA to increase network capacity, achieve operational efficiencies, and deliver faster speeds, providing a better user-experience for subscribers.

The solution utilises CommScope’s E6000 converged edge router and the CommScope E6000r Remote PHY Shelf to support DOCSIS 3.1 and to prepare PŸUR’s network for the evolution towards 10G.

“CommScope, in close partnership with braun teleCom, are best positioned to prepare PŸUR’s network for multi-gigabit service delivery leveraging DOCSIS 3.1 technology over widely adopted and field proven E6000 based I-CCAP and R-PHY based Distributed Access Architectures,” states Guy Sucharczuk, senior vice president and segment president, access networks solutions, CommScope. “braun teleCom, who are providing value engineering, system integration and network implementation services to PŸUR, is a valued collaborator of ours.”

“Tele Columbus’ ambition is to deliver best-in-class broadband services with multi-gigabit speeds to its customers, powered by DOCSIS 3.1 and FTTH networks,” adds Michael Fränkle, chief technology officer of Tele Columbus. “We are proud to work with strong, industry-leading partners to ensure excellent network quality, performance and customer experience.”

“In PŸUR’s technology upgrade project, we see the opportunity to demonstrate braun teleCom’s many years of experience and know-how as a system integrator and solution provider. The long-standing, trust-based partnerships with both Tele Columbus and CommScope, combined with CommScope’s high-end DOCSIS system solutions, enable us once again to play a significant role in shaping the German broadband infrastructure and actively contribute to an increase in the standard of living,” says Damian Koch, managing director of braun teleCom.
