Nokia extending fiber solutions to help operators as data demand grows

Updated: Oct 17, 2016 13:33 IST

Espoo (Finland), Oct. 17 (ANI): Nokia is extending its fiber solution for universal next generation passive optical networks (PON) to help operators more effectively scale, deploy and automate their fiber networks as the demand for data grows.

Launched in 2015, Nokia's universal PON solution leverages existing fiber platforms and infrastructure to help operators evolve networks in a gradual way, adding wavelengths in line with demand. Commercially deployed with eight customers around the world, the solution offers various next generation PON technologies including XGS-PON and TWDM-PON on a single platform and line card. Operators can connect subscribers with any type of optical network terminal (ONTs) regardless of whether it's XGPON1, XGS-PON or TWDM-PON, eliminating the risk of technology and platform lock-in.

Now, Nokia is enhancing its universal solution to provide operators with a higher density option that can reduce costs. Increasing deployment flexibility, the enhancements include new SDN/NFV-based capabilities that automate and simplify the deployment, maintenance and evolution of traditional fiber networks. This provides a smooth evolution path to 10G symmetrical or asymmetrical speeds with cost-efficient non-tunable XGS-PON optics and to TWDM-PON with tunable optics.

With eight next generation PON commercial customers that include the world's first XGS-PON deployments with China Mobile and TWDM-PON by EPB in the city of Chattanooga, Tennessee, Nokia remains committed to researching, developing and implementing the latest technologies and innovations service providers need to accelerate their fiber evolution.

"Nokia has lead the innovation charge in the next-generation fiber space, first with TWDM-PON and then with the use of fixed optics, an approach which is the foundation of today's XGS-PON standard. The enhancements to our next-generation PON portfolio make it easier and more cost-effective for service providers to seamlessly evolve their existing fiber networks in line with demand," said President of Nokia's Fixed Networks business group, Federico Guillen.
