Telekom Slovenije has tapped Nokia to supply broadband equipment to allow its FTTH network to offer 10Gb/s, with deployment slated for this year.
The deployment of the Quillion chipset-powered Nokia ISAM FX series will replace some existing access nodes and will also support the newly built FTTH network which covers the entire country.
Nokia’s solution will enable Telekom Slovenije to immediately offer up to 10Gb/s services for residential and business customers, with the option in the future of evolving to 25Gb/s PON network to support advanced services.
Mitja Štular, PhD, CTO, Telekom Slovenije said: “Utilisation of the new XGS-PON technology means high-speed and higher-quality fixed broadband connections. COVID-19 highlighted the need for highly capable and stable remote connections. Also, high capacity fibre networks complement our mobile network and strengthen our position in the upcoming 5G world.”
Sandy Motley, President, Fixed Networks at Nokia said: “The global investment in fibre highlights the competitive advantage that ultra-fast networks bring. Nokia is the leader in 10Gb/s symmetrical PON and the only vendor to enable a smooth evolution to 25G speeds.”
