Nokia and Allo to deploy gigabit fibre network in Malaysia

Malaysian ICT provider Allo has selected Nokia to deploy a gigabit fibre network in the states of Melaka, Johor, Negeri Sembilan and East Coast of Malaysia.

The deployment, which includes Nokia’s Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) solution and Access Management System, will be completed by end of Q2 2021. When completed, end-users will be able to access a high-speed broadband network and applications that require high capacity.

The future-ready fibre network will enable Allo to support new use cases like smart cities, smart poles, edge automation, 5G backhaul, and enterprise services. Nokia's solution will enable Allo to better manage bandwidth in line with the requirement for different services. The fibre network will support the convergence of more services and users on the same infrastructure, allowing Allo to bring down OpEx and enhance revenue. 

Rodzi Ahmad, Chief Executive Officer at Allo, said: “By utilizing Nokia's expertise, we will be able to accelerate the rollout of fibre services over the next two years. This enables us to offer high-speed broadband to a greater number of people in keeping with the vision of Malaysia’s fiberization initiative.”

Stuart Hendry, Head of Enterprise for Asia Pacific and Japan at Nokia, said: “Our field-proven solutions will help Allo support the growing demand for bandwidth and provide network flexibility. Nokia's solution will enable Allo to bring down costs and offer new and exciting services to its customers. The initiative will help build a future-ready network capable of meeting the ever-growing data demand.”
