Ericsson will be rolling out one of the first commercially available GPON networks developed under the New Zealand government’s Ultra-Fast Broadband initiative.

Northpower Fibre selected Ericsson New Zealand for the layer 2 or GPON supply contract for a portion of New Zealand’s UFB which will be deployed in Whangarei.

“We chose to work with Ericsson based on its lengthy and successful New Zealand experience and its strong global reputation. We were impressed with the performance of Ericsson staff and technology during the laboratory testing phase of the contract process and this added further weight to our final choice,” said Northpower General Manager Network Graham Dawson.

Under Northpower Fibre’s agreement with the government , the network is slated to be completed by June 2014.

This deployment contributes to the New Zealand Government’s ambition to deliver a Nationwide UFB network to three-quarters of the population by 2019.

The Northpower Fibre network will be deployed to deliver the UFB-defined initial speeds of 100mbps (downstream) and 50Mbps (upstream) to end users and has the scalability to upgrade capacity and data speed as demand grows. ®
