Teleste, a technology provider of broadband video and service platforms, announced new products that raise intelligence in cable networks.

All new Teleste products are offering unique advantages to customers. With the new set of products, Teleste addresses a major pain point for cable operators - time consuming network management and maintenance.

Teleste's new AC9000 Intelligent fiber optic node eliminates human errors from network installations through automatic configuration.

The CATVisor EMS 4.0 management software offers flexibility and configurability to HFC infrastructure management.

Teleste introduced DVB-T2 and DVB-C reception modules to the Luminato head-end platform as well as the new HECS Head-End Signal Control System at ANGA Cable.

“Manual network maintenance, human mistakes and the difficulty of locating network problems are often the main culprits behind unnecessary truck-rolls and high operating expenses. Teleste tackles these problems by adding intelligence to the network,” said Pasi Jarvenpaa, business director at Teleste Access Networks business group, in a statement.

“The fire-and forget installation of the new AC9000 coupled with the industry's most advanced management suite help operators to significantly reduce OPEX (News - Alert), avoid service outages, and provide better service to end-users,” Jarvenpaa added.

“TeliaSonera is leveraging Teleste's intelligent network products and management software, which improve the quality of our broadband network. This has resulted in higher uptime of broadband services and increased customer satisfaction,” said Sakari Kangasvieri, production manager at TeliaSonera (News - Alert) Finland.

Recently, Teleste announced it signed an agreement with INEO, GDF Suez Group, to provide a video surveillance system for Paris police organization. The implementation of the urban video protection system will provide a decision tool to facilitate traffic management, maintenance of law and order, fight against crime, rescue operations and fight against terrorism.
