Adtran helped us understand how to best leverage its market-leading technology.
Sure, part of the Batelco Group, operates in the Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Ascension Island, Saint Helena, Falkland Islands and Diego Garcia. Homes in Guernsey are relying more on online services, such as education, health and leisure, creating a rapid increase in the use of gaming systems, smart TVs, security and a variety of IoT-enabled smart home devices. To meet this demand, Sure required a scalable technology to enable its customers to use these applications reliably and seamlessly.
The simplicity of the Adtran end-to-end fiber broadband solution enables Sure to install and offer gigabit services in a very short amount of time and reduce the energy required to deliver those services. The Adtran 10Gbit/s fiber access platform will serve Sure well into the future, providing some of the best fiber technology available.
“Sure is deploying an advanced fiber technology paired with a highly-scalable modern architecture that will support the internet applications needed to remain competitive today and the creation of new, differentiated services as the market evolves,” said Stuart Broome, VP of sales, EMEA, at Adtran. “We look forward to helping Sure achieve its goals in Guernsey, making the island among the best-connected places in the world.”
