Lunet is new Waystream customer - Waystream infrastructure speeds up Luleås Internet
Lunet supplies broadband fiber to the inhabitants of Luleå. Today, they reach 8 of 10 inhabitants and these will receive even faster Internet connections, something that is necessary as society becomes increasingly digitialized.
”Because we were faced with a major upgrade of our network, we evalutaed a number of vendors in 2016 and 2017. Our choice was Waystream and the MS4000 as we were able to test the product for quality and functionality. Our opinion is that it is a product designed and manufactured for the purpose of delivering robust and fast fiber access that meets today’s high requirements. Even the near proximity to Waystream and their flexible approach to functional content has played a big part in our choice” says Thomas Sundström, CEO Lunet.
Initially, the deal is for 2,000 customer connections worth 700,000 SEK. The access equipment, Waystream’s MS4000 that is a layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet access switch, will be shipped to Lunet in June and will be used to upgrade to Gigabit speed. This first deal is just the start of a larger project that is expected to run during 2017 and 2018.
- It feels great to be able to introduce a new customer. We are very proud that Lunet has chosen our equipment in tough competition with other vendors. Together, we will now speed up the Internet for Luleå inhabitants. Lunet has high ambitions and we are looking forward to grow with Lunet in the future, says Johnny Hedlund, CEO Waystream.
