Globe Telecom taps Nokia for FWA upgrade

Philippines-based operator Globe Telecom chose Nokia equipment to modernise its network infrastructure with Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) capabilities in several key locations nationwide.

In a statement, Nokia stated that Globe tapped it for its Broadband Network Gateway (BNG) solution which will bedeployed in: North Luzon, South Luzon, National Capital Region, Visayas and Mindanao.

The Finnish vendor claimed the BNO solution aids in optimising total cost of ownership of sites and introduces a capability to support FWA services, enabling the operator to offer consumers Fixed Mobile Convergence.

Joel Agustin, SVP of Network Planning and Engineering, Network Technical Group at Globe Telecom, said: “We are committed to continuously improving our network infrastructure to provide the best possible broadband experience to our subscribers. Nokia’s new BNG solution introduces capability to evolve into a flexible multi-access gateway that can combine wireline and wireless access technologies, enabling us to further increase efficiencies. We are looking forward to working with Nokia on this crucial initiative.”

Kent Wong, VP and Head of IP Business at Nokia Asia Pacific, added: “We have a longstanding partnership with Globe Telecom and are now delighted to work on this initiative to modernize the BNG network for an overall improved broadband experience.”
