Mega Vision and CICT transforming Southeast Asian networks with Calix

Southeast Asian cable operators Mega Vision and CICT are leveraging Calix GPON solutions as they transform portions of their networks to fibre.

Indonesian MegaVision (Cemerland Multimedia) and Filipino CICT (Converge ICT) are examples of a growing trend among cable operators globally who are making the leap to fibre to meet rising subscriber demand for ultra-high-speed broadband services and a better subscriber experience.

Manila-based CICT has witnessed some of these effects upon transforming its network with Calix’s GPON technology. The firm is using Calix’s solutions to ready its network for the roll out of new services, including television and high-speed Internet with speeds up to 100 megabits per second (Mbps) in several cities in northern Luzon, the largest and most populous island in the nation.

CICT is also utilizing Calix Open Link Cable software to emulate the OSS interfaces that are used by DOCSIS products to seamlessly integrate GPON into their existing back-office operations.

“Transforming our network to fibre enables us to stay ahead of competition and meet our subscribers’ ever-growing needs for higher broadband speeds and a trouble-free network,” said Dennis Anthony Uy, President and CEO at CICT. “Working with Tel-trade to deploy next generation solutions from Calix has allowed us to transform rapidly and truly differentiate our service offering from our competition.”

MegaVision, based in Bandung (Indonesia’s third largest city), has also transformed its network, moving away from legacy DOCSIS products to GPON. MegaVision is well underway with Phase 1 of this project – a doubling of broadband speeds available in their subscriber service packages.

Vincent Lu, Chairman of MegaVision, said: “With fibre in place, we have the foundation in place to continue to introduce faster speeds and more advanced broadband services as our subscribers’ needs change. We have already seen new efficiencies in our internal operations through the fibre network, which results in an improved experience and more positive feedback from our subscribers.” 

Andy Lockhart, senior vice president of international sales at Calix, said: “Each of these operators knew fibre was the path to get them to delivering an unmatched subscriber experience. We are seeing more and more cable operators make the move to fibre, both in Southeast Asia and around the globe.”
