Fibreoptics is here to stay

Over the years to come, BBned will continue the implementation of fibreoptic cables in the Netherlands. Fibreoptics is the perfect technology to meet end users’ ever-increasing demands for bandwidth and will eventually extend beyond the possibilities of traditional infrastructures. Within the Open Networking Provisioning Model, BBned takes responsibility for implementing and managing the active fibreoptic infrastructure. BBned collaborates with partners to construct and finance the passive fibreoptic layer. As soon as the passive layer is available, BBned will install the network equipment and provide its associated services providers with access to the new fibreoptic area, allowing them to offer their services. Since BBned has a robust, smooth-running organisation, the company is able to start implementing active fibreoptic structures straightaway. BBned is currently rolling out fibreoptic infrastructure networks in residential and business areas in Amsterdam (www.glasvezelamsterdam.nl), Rotterdam (Fiberport; www.fiberport.nl) and the Dutch province of Noord-Brabant (www.glasvezeleindhoven.nl).
