Gigaclear, a UK Broadband Network Operator for rural communities, has delivered one of the most advanced Next Generation Broadband networks to properties in Appleton and Eaton in rural Oxfordshire. This new Ultrafast Internet service has been built using a pure fibre network and is delivering bandwidths of 1 Gigabit per second (1,000Mbps) to each connected home and business.
KEYMILE’s multi-service access platform, MileGate, has been selected to provide the Gigabit Ethernet FTTH connections due to its class leading port density and highly flexible architecture. The MileGate platform is a compact access solution and by utilising the high density active Ethernet Fibre-to-the-Home line card, Gigaclear can support up to 480 customers from a single subrack. The MileGate provides a backhaul capacity of up to 20 Gbit/s, and the use of pluggable cSFP optical modules assists Gigaclear in managing their capital investment as their network and customer base grows.
MileGate’s ruggedised design allows Gigaclear the flexibility of deploying services from either indoor locations or from street cabinets, depending on the specific requirements of the access network being built. Extensive traffic management and quality of service functions enables Gigaclear to provide a range of both residential and business service offerings within the same network, and will allow new services to be implemented in the future.
Matthew Hare, founder and CEO Gigaclear, commented: "We are building all new fibre to the premises networks in rural communities to satisfy the clear demand for better broadband connectivity. We are delivering ultrafast broadband at 1Gbps today, being fibre based and with our KEYMILE partnership we can increase the capacity of our networks on demand, satisfying the needs of communities today and for the foreseeable future.”
"The partnership with Gigaclear has allowed KEYMILE to showcase our class leading fibre solutions capable of transforming the lives of those living and working in rural areas where there is little or no broadband connectivity,” said Trevor Drummond, MD KEYMILE Ltd. "This is an important step in what will be the first community of many to be connected by Gigaclear, benefiting from KEYMILE’s knowledge and experience of delivering high speed broadband services to rural communities.”
