2016-2022: the construction of a very high-speed network

In 2016, Axione was awarded a contract by the Syndicat Mixte Sarthois d’Aménagement Numérique to design and build a very high-speed fiber optic network with 82,000 outlets and a volume of 202 pooling points. In 2019, Axione will be awarded a 30-year public service delegation contract with Sartel THD for the rollout of the rest of the department (outside the AMII zone) with 274 additional sharing points.

Over a period of six years, our teams have installed 216,000 fiber optic connections. Two months ahead of schedule, we are proud to have contributed to the digital development of the Sarthe region. This project has been awarded the TopSite Innovation label and demonstrates our environmental and social commitments

2019-2049: a 30-year contract to serve the people of Sarthe

The completion of this rollout is a key step in a 30-year project for Axione and Sartel THD. Our teams will be responsible for operating the networks and integrating new digital services.

We are facing new objectives with the construction of a local Datacenter to serve local authorities during 2023 and the deployment of a very low bandwidth LoRa network to support new uses using the Internet of Things.
