LOUVAIN-LA-NEUVE, Belgium -- GO plc in Malta has launched a converged fixed and mobile solution using Tessares's Multipath.
TCP technology. Available to all GO plc customers, this solution combines the operator's fixed
network with its 4.5G mobile network to deliver a range of converged services.
Commenting on the launch, Joseph Attard, GO CTO, said: "Our primary focus is to utilise the
leading edge capabilities of GO's fixed and mobile networks to offer innovative services such as
immediate provisioning, backup services, wireless internet and faster internet access over the
converged hybrid network."
"We are very proud to add GO to our list of commercially deployed customers. This project has
been delivered quickly and smoothly, with excellent collaboration between all the teams
involved." said Denis Périquet, CEO of Tessares.

provides services to the Maltese business community, including cloud services, roaming hub
services, data networking solutions, business IP services and managed services.
Deploying DOCSIS 3.1 across its entire footprint gave Rogers Communications the ability to offer speeds of up to 1 Gbit/s,
contributing to a broadband segement that generated about 60% of the Canadian operator's $3.05 billion (US) in Q4 cable earnings.
On Jan. 23, Broadband World News hosts a Calix-sponsored webinar that explores several ways CSPs can enhance customer experience and find new business opportunities to avoid devolving into a speed race where nobody wins, not even the customer.
It wasn't long ago that TV was ranked by subscribers as the most important service in the bundle provided by their communications service provider (CSP). Recent research indicates that for nearly three quarters of subscribers, broadband is now the most important service. Broadcast TV is the most important service to only 15% of North American consumers, replaced by OTT video streaming platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Disney+. In addition, many different competitors are moving aggressively to stake a claim in consumers' homes.
In 2020, CSPs need to fight back by transforming their business models, which are becoming more reliant on a single source of revenue: fixed broadband services.
This webinar will focus on helping CSPs transform their business models by placing a firm focus on delivering a sensational subscriber experience and by offering compelling new services that generate value for subscribers. These actions will reinforce the CSP's strategic position in the home network and position themselves for growth in the next decade.
