PacketFront adds VoIP to fibre offering with acquisition

Antony Savvas

PacketFront, the fibre-to-the-home broadband company, has acquired voice over IP provider 42Networks of Sweden.

The acquisition reinforces PacketFront's position as a leader in end-to-end solutions for fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks by extending its product services set.

42Networks develops and distributes products and systems for VoIP, incorporated in products such as its Digital Residential Gateway (DRG) system.

The DRG series allows operators and service providers to deliver multiple broadband services with enhanced security and high quality IP-telephony to residential and enterprise customers.

DRG was first developed within the Ericsson Business Innovation business, and 42Networks was subsequently established after a management buy-out from Ericsson.

Martin Thunman, CEO of PacketFront, said, “Operators keen to offer a telephony service equal to the traditional analogue PTT network are very quality focused, and 42Networks' technology is among the best on the market.”
