Tratos and Telefonica España cooperation

Tratos has supplied telecommunication and optical fibre cable, worth more than 20 million euros to Telefonica España to support Spain’s ever-growing fibre-to-the-home technology (FTTH) network.

The Spanish multinational broadband and telecommunications provider, with operations in Europe, Asia, and North, Central and South America, operates globally and is one of the largest telephone operators and mobile network providers in the world.

In a relatively short period, the country’s telecom operators have laid out fibre-optic cables reaching 31 million premises – more than France, Germany, the UK and Italy combined. In the OECD, only Korea and Japan have more.

Telefonica España

Founded in 1924, Telefónica operates in Spain, mainly in the fixed and mobile telephone sector, using broadband as the key tool for developing both businesses, along with IT and services. Telefónica España is the leading telecommunications company in Spain for access, taking in voice, data, television and internet access, offering its clients the most innovative services and cutting edge technology to achieve its aim of becoming the first digital telco. 

In 2019 Telefónica España handled more than 41.5 million connections, while the revenue from operations amounts to 12,706 million euros.

Nowadays Telefónica operate in 12 countries and has a presence in 24, with and an average of 113,819 professionals. An innovative and attentive spirit with an immense technological potential that multiplies the ability to choose of its more than 344 million clients. 

FTTH initiative

Tratos is very pleased to support globally the Fibre to the home (FTTH) initiative, which is a powerful enabler of UN Global Goals : GOAL 3: Good Health and Well-being, GOAL 4: Quality Education, GOAL 5: Gender EqualityGOAL 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth, GOAL 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, GOAL 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities, GOAL 12: Responsible Consumption and Production.

FTTH is the delivery of a communications signal over optical fibre from the operator’s switching equipment all the way to a home or business, thereby replacing existing copper infrastructure such as telephone wires and coaxial cable.

FTTH is one of the most powerful technologies for fixed Internet access:

  • It promotes the performance and the reliability of passive infrastructure,
  • It offers the fastest and most symmetrical connection speeds,
  • It allows the evolution of new Internet uses, multimedia and connected services thanks to speeds much higher than those of ADSL.

Fibre to the home is a relatively new and fast-growing method of providing vastly higher bandwidth to consumers and businesses, and thereby enabling more robust video, internet and voice services.

Connecting homes directly to fibre optic cable enables enormous improvements in the bandwidth that can be provided to consumers. Current fibre optic technology can provide two-way transmission speeds of up to 100 megabits per second. Further, as cable modem and DSL providers are struggling to squeeze increments of higher bandwidth out of their technologies, ongoing improvements in fibre optic equipment are constantly increasing available bandwidth without having to change the fibre. That’s why fibre networks are said to be “future proof.”
