Swiss village FTTH network controls renewable energy

Energy and FTTH complentary solution

Drahtex and partner Prysmian Group are building a rural FTTH network providing high speed broadband for Huenenberg village to control one of Europe’s largest biogas plants.

Today they are completing the initial phase of a visionary rural community fibre network which combines FTTH with local environmental control Prysmian Group helps to deploy the underground fibre infrastructure running alongside the biogas distribution network over a total network length of 4.5 km. Fibre connectivity automates every component in the biogen heating plant with remote control availability to monitor and control. This exciting project is entirely selffinanced. Renewable energy provides 15% of village energy requirements.
