Penza, 22 April 2015. PenzaNews. Residents of over 70 private houses in Sosnovka and Mezhdurechye neighborhoods of Penza are now able to use modern communication services thanks to the first city project of “Rostelecom” company that aims to connect stand-alone cottages to its fiber optic network.
The project employs the FTTH (Fiber to the Home) technology with bandwidth up to 1 Gbps, the press service of the Penza “Rostelecom” branch informed PenzaNews agency.
“The network in the aforementioned neighborhoods can service up to 240 ports at once,” the company pointed out.
The press service noted that the telecommunications program encompasses houses on Zhivopisnaya, Tenistaya, Dostoevskovo and Shishkina streets in Sosnovka, and Berseneva, Mutovkina and Borovikskovo streets and Levitsky proyezd in Mezhdurechye.
“Using a fiber optic cable right to the house, a user can get three hi-tech services at once: SIP phone, Internet access at up to 300 Mbps, and ‘Interactive TV’ with over 200 digital channels, including 28 in HD. The ‘Interactive TV’ service also includes several options, including ‘Air Management,’ ‘Parental Control,’ ‘Video Rental’ and ‘Karaoke’,” said the Penza branch.
A fiber optic network, the company noted, can be used for many needs of the private house owners: in particular, a user may set up a WiFi network for the whole landplot or a house or office CCTV system using IP cameras.
The constant modernization of network infrastructure and upgrade to fiber optic provides great potential for the data network and guarantees high quality of provided services, said Lev Dyatlov, director of the Penza “Rostelecom” branch.
“Having gained its niche in the apartment building clientele, ‘Rostelecom’ was the first Penza SPs to develop new niches and connect standalone housing to fiber optic. A well-developed communication infrastructure is a must for a comfortable life in a cottage neighborhood. As of today, the company offers people living in Sosnovka and Mezhdurechye a full spectrum of international level communication services that enjoy high demand in city flats,” he stressed.
