BRIKKS goes to Africa

For a few packed days many of the fiber to all heroes of Africa will meet up at the FTTH Council Africa conference. ViaEuropa & Labs2 will be present by a delegation lead by Jonas Birgersson (speaker and chairman in two slots on thursday, see full program below) but also present on the trade show floor represented by director Patrik G Fransson and colleagues.

There is great movement in the African FTTH scene but their is also a lot of question on how to best tackle the challenges. ViaEuropa that invented the open fiber model in 1999 will be present to share best practices and discuss joint ventures. Labs2 International will be there to explain how BRIKKS contains almost 20 years of FTTH know how that can be put to use with in a few weeks in local projects anywhere in the world.

OpenGiga in Germany (powered by BRIKKS)

ViaEuropa Deutchland Gmbh launches the much awaited Open Giga to finally start the open fiber revolution in Germany. At the Technical museum i Berlin an eager group of journalist learned about the way for Germany to move forward with open fiber. Based on the Open Service Exchange Operator model (the OSEO) invented by ViaEuropa in 1999, VEDE will now support the German cities and regions so that the fiber can be build and owned by the public sector and VEDE adds the active network & operations so that any service providers on equal terms can launch and sell services to the connected households.

The reception the new model have been a strong interest, its a good thing that the most proven BSS / OSS for OSEO is ready to handle any demand. Based on the BRIKKS VEDE will be able to deliver not only high quality and automated operations but also a very high level of fiber rent so that municipals can recover their investments and reinvest until there finally is fiber to all!

BRIKKS in Austria

In Austria one region is blazing ahead to create a role model open fiber build out that could be deployed for the whole nation. BRIKKS is now implemented to support this effort with the usual advantages of low OPEX, high quality operations based on the most advanced BSS / OSS for the OSEO in the world. ViaEuropa have been selected to be one of the OSEO partners for the project and we are convinced that the model invented in Stockholm in 1999 will work as magical in this beautiful part of central Europa.
