Fiber access

TurkNet expands fiber deployments with Zyxel’s FTTH‑GPON Solutions


Main challenge

With a population of over 82 million people, the Turkish market is massive and very competitive. TurkNet was on the lookout for affordable, high-performance fiber access solutions to expand its assortment of services and remain in its industry-leading position.



With a solution-oriented approach and a strong local presence, Zyxel Communications supported TurkNet on their process towards fiber with our flexible and reasonably-priced FTTH-GPON Solutions.

Main story​

TurkNet has made continuous investments and innovations over the years after a principle of unconditional customer satisfaction. TurkNet has been using Zyxel’s VMG8623 Dual-Band Wireless AC VDSL2 Gigabit IAD for several years, and in 2019, they were on the lookout for new GPON solutions with the flexibility to use the existing fixed-line CPE for both DSL and fiber services.




Zyxel’s fiber access solution provides different fiber connectivity options. TurkNet can easily deploy services on GPON, active fiber solutions with OLT, ONU/ONT, and active fiber gateways in their roadmap, and GPON technology is only the first step.



We did not face any problems during the implementation process. Zyxel’s technical teams were very helpful. Zyxel’s FTTH-GPON equipment was easy to implement, and any issues with the operation was quickly resolved with firmware upgrades. We recommend Zyxel Communications to our colleague in worldwide ISP’s without hesitation.​
