Our customer

Our customer​

Founded in 1999, wilhelm.tel is a regional telecommunications provider based in Norderstedt. As a full-service provider, it supplies large parts of northern Germany with cable TV, internet, telephony and mobile communications. With more than 90% of the market share, the German provider of fiber connections is the most dominant in the Hamburg metropolitan area.

Main challenge

One of wilhelm.tel’s customers, housing company SAGA Unternehmensgruppe, wanted to provide its 130,000 building tenants in Hamburg with fiber connections to enable high-bandwidth, low-latency connectivity.

 

Solutions

Zyxel Communications provided wilhelm.tel with comprehensive end-to-end solutions, from central port to the customers and successfully helped wilhelm.tel expand its fiber infrastructure by replacing each building’s copper cables with fiber optics for true fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) connections.

Main story​

This FTTB deployment brought fiber connections to over 130,000 households and provided a major service upgrade with the speed of active ethernet for even more powerful internet.

Throughout the engagement, Zyxel has been a proactive and responsive partner. Whenever wilhelm.tel provided a feature request, Zyxel quickly fulfilled it and fully developed individual software within different project-specific requirements. Zyxel’s products fully delivered on the promise of behaving in real situations exactly as simulated in Zyxel’s laboratory.

Quote

We can look back at years of successful cooperation with Zyxel, especially in the chassis product segment and in customer and technical support. Together, our companies built a solid foundation and relationship, which is why we were confident in Zyxel’s ability to upgrade and extend our fiber connections to each subscriber’s household.​
