Broadband for everyone: AltNets
Reduce the risks of network investments while speeding fiber deployment
The broadband stakes in Europe have never been higher. In the UK, the government has set a target to bring gigabit-capable broadband to at least 85% of households by 2025, while other European countries have aggressive targets of their own. This puts incumbent and alternative network providers in a race to connect and retain broadband subscribers throughout Europe.
CommScope is helping AltNets achieve their goals with optimized CapEx and OpEx integrated PON hardware, software, connectivity solutions, planning, expertise, and services that are specifically designed to reduce the risks of broadband deployment in European markets while setting the highest standards for performance and reliability.
Demo Van Brings Broadband to Everyone
The demo van brings our newly launched NOVUX® and Prodigy® eco system to service providers. Making it easier for Altnets to find solutions to their toughest network challenges, like skilled labor shortages.

How CommScope helps AltNets
Reduce FTTH deployment risk
CommScope has been a leader in FTTH for decades. We’ve pioneered fiber connectivity solutions that are fast and easy to deploy while championing open, standards-based PON platforms that give service providers the flexibility they need to evolve their networks their way. It all adds up to faster, easier deployment with less risk.
Boost network reliability
Our solutions are designed for high reliability, simplified maintenance, and outstanding service quality. This helps AltNets keep their networks performing at their best so they can focus on enhancing their services, retaining customers, and increasing market share.
Gain a local manufacturing edge
CommScope has built a robust supply chain that leverages multiple global locations to provide a local manufacturing advantage to our FTTH customers throughout Europe and around the world. And our fiber cable solutions, highlighted in the short video below, are manufactured for Europe in Europe.
Broadband for everyone starts now. Join the journey.
The CommScope broadband for everyone experience is touring the UK. Our mobile van will begin its journey with an appearance at Connected Britain, highlighting our end-to-end FTTH solutions for event attendees. Then it will travel the country to offer visitors an exclusive, hands-on look at the technologies that can help AltNets and service providers of all kinds extend broadband to everyone, everywhere.
Explore solutions for AltNets
The NOVUX™ modular FTTH ecosystem is built to speed and streamline fiber deployment. It’s the industry’s first solution that helps AltNets make broadband for everyone practical by supporting more applications and deployment scenarios with less inventory—and a much lower learning curve for technicians.
CommScope’s Prodigy™ hardened connectivity system provides a universal small form solution that can help AltNets speed and simplify deployment as they roll out broadband for everyone. With it, customers need only one cable assembly that can be adapted for a variety of connector types, making installation and ordering fast and easy while reducing training requirements for technicians and accelerating fiber deployment.
European Fiber Cable
CommScope is making it easier than ever for AltNets to expand their FTTH networks at scale with fiber-optic cables that are designed exclusively for the European market. Made in the heart of Europe using the most advanced manufacturing techniques, these cables are ready to be shipped wherever and whenever they’re needed, while avoiding long transportation delays.
Cloud-to-edge PON Solutions
The CommScope cloud-to-edge PON portfolio is built to give AltNets an edge by making it easy to deploy and scale their next-gen networks for virtually any opportunity. That’s why we created a system that is truly open, with the flexibility to accommodate a wide range of deployment scenarios and a set of dynamic features that streamline management and speed the rollout of exciting new features.
CommScope has more than 1,300 experts in over 30 countries who have helped design, deploy, and evolve broadband networks for service providers of all kinds—in every corner of the world. We view every customer engagement as a partnership, and we measure our success on our ability to help customers execute their network projects successfully.

Streamlining FTTX deployment
JOhan Geens outlines how the NOVUX building blocks can be combined to provide a range of FTTH configuration options that help AltNets simplify and streamline fiber deployment.
CommScope’s Sandra Goosens discusses how NOVUX accelerates fiber deployment and reduces training requirements for AltNets and other service providers with its standardized components and modular design.
Ready for SDN?
The opportunity to leverage virtualization and SDN in service provider networks has been discussed for a decade. Now, David Keane Mirajkar, Head of Service Provider Solutions and Architecture—CommScope EMEA, explains why the time is right for AltNets and service providers of all kinds to deploy next-gen PON networks with advanced software intelligence built-in.
Leveraging two decades of PON experience, CommScope has developed a next generation PON system that delivers cloud-to-edge innovation and unlocks new benefits for AltNets and service providers everywhere. Erik Gronvall, CommScope’s VP of PON PLM, discusses how CommScope’s advanced solution enables flexible deployment, lower total costs, and faster introduction of new features for service providers.
Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
At CommScope, we push ourselves and our thinking today to help create a better and more sustainable tomorrow. In addition to our diversity and community initiatives, we’ve cut greenhouse gas emissions by 15% and decreased water withdrawal by 9.1% since 2019. And in 2021, we diverted 87.8% of non-hazardous waste from landfills, while 8.9% of the electricity we purchased originated from renewable sources. CommScope’s corporate responsibility and sustainability programs, initiatives, and performance are detailed in our latest report.
Solving the unique challenges of rural PON deployment
Rolling out PON in rural environments, where there are often long distances between residential subscribers, requires service providers to plan carefully. They must carefully consider their architectural choices, physical facilities requirements, hardware platforms, and operational needs. Each of these factors can impact the economics and success of rural PON deployment.
Why build a new network the old way?
Legacy, hardware-defined PON networks are too rigid and proprietary for today’s needs. See how AltNets can leverage the benefits of a modern, software-defined PON architecture that’s feature-rich, operationally efficient, and ready for what’s next—without all the complexity.
CommScope helps challenger ISP Telcom bring broadband to everyone
When Telcom Group’s rural internet service provider, WeFibre, sought to roll out fiber to thousands of homes, the company turned to CommScope’s NOVUX ecosystem. Learn how this advanced connectivity system helped WeFibre deploy fiber faster than ever while streamlining planning, simplifying inventory management, and reducing complexity for installation teams.
