Vodafone select BKT Elektronik for UK exchange renewal project

Created May 30, 2017

BKT Elektronik recently announced that Vodafone has selected its custom-made ODF and connectivity suite for its nationwide UK exchange renewal project.

The solution is designed from the ground up in direct response to Vodafone’s requirements for a new future-proof deployment with the added benefit of backward compatibility for installation into their legacy network. Andrew Wilson, UK and Ireland BKT Business Development Manager explains, “As a manufacturer we were able to address a very long list of disparate future-proofing requirements that Vodafone knew from experience it was going to need; something other big names were unable to match. Working closely with Vodafone our engineering excellence and ability to quickly prototype and react have been clear winners throughout.” The result is a suite of ODF frames built to house 1U and 2U 19” mini-ODFs plus a brand new splice field. All 19” components have built-in adaptability to legacy racks such as the TEP1E and Ciena 6500. “Vodafone is now very satisfied and, with our commitment to ongoing product development, set up for the foreseeable future. Our solution is also applicable in many other operator environments.”, continued Andrew.
