Nepal’s Subisu modernising optical network with Nokia

Nepalese service provider Subisu has selected Nokia to modernise its 1500-kilometer backbone network stretching across East and West Nepal.

In a first-of-its-kind initiative in Nepal, Nokia has deployed its 400G single fibre solution to provide ultra-high-speed broadband to Subisu’s retail and enterprise subscribers. Nokia's solution allows Subisu to address the growing bandwidth requirement and break into new market segments. Subisu's customers will be able to use high-capacity applications and experience an overall improvement in the quality of services. 

Nokia 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) platform offering Photonic Service Engine (PSE) enabled 400G single fibre, bidirectional Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) solution is now deployed across the country. This is the first operation of such a solution anywhere.

Nokia's 400G single fibre solution significantly improves fibre capacity and helps Subisu enhance network resilience and reach while optimising capex and reducing opex. The solution allows Subisu to easily scale the network to provide multi-terabits of capacity over a single fibre.

Binaya Saud, CEO, Subisu, said: "Nokia was the sole vendor for this important project, and its solutions are enabling us to grow our subscriber base and provide a superior experience to our existing customers even as we future-proof our investments."

Vinish Bawa, Head of Emerging Markets, India, Nokia, said: “Our field-proven 1830 PSS solution is enabling service providers like Subisu to meet the growing capacity demand even as they enhance customer experience."
