We believe that ever-present ultra-broadband access creates a world of heightened experiences through deeper connections. In fact, the more we connect with our surroundings - through a multitude of devices - the more access we demand and the more data we consume.
As a result, we aim to provide more bandwidth in more places to give society more and better access to the world through our ultra-broadband solutions. We want connections to be seamless, secure, from any device and any kind of network. We do this by providing lightning-fast, wireless and fixed broadband access, backed by our high-performance IP networking expertise. In doing so, we bring network capacity closer to consumers than ever before: at work, at home and at every point in between.
We have a comprehensive wireless portfolio supporting LTE, 4.5G Pro, 4.9G and are making substantial investments in 5G. These solutions provide high quality mobile broadband today and a path into the future.
This utilizes the established Flexi and new 5G-ready AirScale families and is complemented by small cell, Wi-Fi, front-haul and microwave products and solutions. We have a converged core portfolio with market leading IMS / VoLTE, SDM, MSS, Telco Cloud and virtualized software, plus platforms for the underlying distributed or centralized infrastructure building towards an all IP architecture.
We have a comprehensive fixed broadband portfolio offering connectivity over fiber, copper, and cable – providing every established and emerging technology, including VDSL2 vectoring, Vplus, G.fast, GPON, EPON/DPoE, XGS-PON and TWDM-PON. Even when the final connection is wireless, our fiber-based fixed networks can connect to mobile base stations and small cells. On the road to 5G, with an ever increasing number of small cells, our fiber networks provide a secure and reliable backhaul solution. Our acquisition of Gainspeed in September 2016 accelerates our activities on the cable MSO market with our unified cable access solution.
We have a comprehensive IP and Optical portfolio addressing all UBB transport requirements. From purpose-built optical fronthaul and IP backhaul platforms to massive, high-performance IP/MPLS and optical products for metro aggregation and core networks, our programmable networking solutions interconnect everyone and everything.
In addition, our extensive portfolio of virtualized and physical IP service gateways deliver the highest performance and scale for fixed and mobile, cellular and Wi-Fi, licensed and unlicensed, and business VPN services.
