Denmark: Dansk Bredbaand deploying FTTH
"March 16, 2004 CeBIT, Hannover--Cisco Systems announced that Dansk Bredbaand a/s (DBnet), is building a broadband metro Ethernet network to deliver the triple play of services (voice, video and 10-Mbit/sec data) over an Ethernet to the home network serving an initial 10,000 residents in Copenhagen and across Denmark. DBnet is implementing the Cisco ONS 15454 multiservice transport platform to transport the Gigabit Ethernet core over DWDM. This will link DBnet's Copenhagen headquarters and regional metro Ethernet broadband networks, which will cover 13 towns in the near future."
"DBnet is focusing on providing Metro Ethernet-based services to residential subscribers and is working with housing associations and local governments to extend its regional city networks--initially in Næstved, Odense, Kolding and Esbjerg. As Denmark joins other Nordic governments in pushing for broadband access as a means of enhancing regional competitiveness, the company has decided that the most effective way to deliver these services is to build a network with an optical transport layer and metro Ethernet last-mile access over a fiber-to-the-home network."
