Telecom Armenia starts work on fibre NGN

Telecom Armenia has begun construction on a new fibre-optic Next Generation Network (NGN) in the Armenian capital of Yerevan.

A former unit of Veon now trading as Beeline, Telecom Armenia expects the NGN to offer speeds of up to 10Gbps. Deployment has commenced in the Davidashen district of the city, although the operator does not expect to switch the network on for “several months”.

CommsUpdate quoted Telecom Armenia CEO Hayk Yesayan as saying: “We are taking a new leap into the next century by creating a new fibre-optic network that will be one of the best in the world. In existing networks, the main backbone is shared among multiple users, while in our new network, each subscriber will receive a fibre-optic channel using fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) technology.”
