The company added that it is the sole supplier of optical networking and broadband access products for FibreConnect’s country-wide FTTP (fiber-to-the-premise) rollout, ranging from DWDM/PTN/OTN for Core to xPON and Ethernet for Access. Based on a unique business model built around partnerships with regional and retail ISPs (Internet Service Providers), FibreConnect targets industrials areas in Italy which currently lack broadband infrastructure to support the Italian government’s ‘Transition 4.0’ plan to promote the digital transformation of its manufacturing sector.

Renzo Ravaglia, Executive Chairman and CEO of FibreConnect said, “FibreConnect is thrilled to partner with Tejas Networks on this transformative network rollout that seeks to bridge the digital divide for small & médium businesses in Italy and extend the benefits of high-speed connectivity to unserved businesses and industries across the country through its ISP partners. Tejas Networks' innovative solutions such as their business-grade Type-C protection switching on ONTs, 2.5G GPON ONTs, converged “swiss-knife” architecture for multiservice access, and novel interplay of PTN and OTN technologies in the backbone are enabling us to deliver the highest level of service to our customers in a cost-effective manner. In spite of challenging macro-economic headwinds, Tejas Networks fully met our expectations of timely deliveries, high quality, and prompt customer support to successfully get this network up and running as per committed deadlines."
Mr. Anand Athreya, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Tejas Networks said, “We are delighted that FibreConnect chose to build the complete network in Italy using our carrier-class optical and broadband access products.

FibreConnect designs and builds very high capacity fiber optic networks in the Industrial and Artisanal Areas (AIA) of Italy that are still poorly covered by network infrastructures and advanced ultra-broadband services, through close cooperation with Internet service providers (ISPs) with a strategic approach that allows us to make the most of the territory and local businesses that operate in a specific area. FibreConnect's mission is to enable the capacity for innovation and sustainable development of SMEs located in the AIA, which make up the Italian entrepreneurial fabric, allowing them to access ultra-broadband connectivity services.
