Internet 10 Gigabit πως σας φαίνεται; Το περασμένο καλοκαίρι, η φινλανδική εταιρεία τηλεπικοινωνιακού εξοπλισμού Nokia and Starman, ο μεγαλύτερος φορέας καλωδιακής τηλεόρασης στις χώρες της Βαλτικής, ανακοίνωσε ότι θα αναπτύξει το πρώτο πανεθνικό 10 Gigabit Ethernet passive optical network (EPON) of Europe.
Just a few weeks before the agreement of 10G EPON became public, and Starman, which was bought by Finnish Telco Elisa for 151 million dollars in mid-December, said it was undergoing testing of the 10-gigabit network.
Starman CTO Jaanus Erlemann said that in the current state of the company there is no need to rush, because the goal is to operate as much as possible better to deliver a more reliable solution in the long run.
“Our existing DOCSIS3.0 network is very high quality and we are able to provide 500Mbps services throughout our presence. This gives us plenty of room for thorough testing on the new EPON technology, without having to rush, ”
He hopes that the higher network speeds will be available to customers in the near future that could also encourage content providers to improve production and broadcasting technology to provide full HD experience.
In the USA, the "experiment" has already been done in the city of Chattanooga, Tennessee. The city has the first network of services Internet worldwide at 10-gigabit speeds and has shown that high-speed technology can create new jobs and millions in economic and social benefits.
Erlemann emphasizes that the availability of new fast internet technology is not an end in itself, but what really matters is the ultimate quality of service to customers.
So the company has set the goal of allocating the 10-gigabit network to at least 50.000 customers in Estonia over the next five years. Because the new network is very reliable and its maintenance is relatively inexpensive, the company plans to create a model of cooperation with the public sector so that it can be extended to remote rural areas.
