SINET taps Nokia for residential broadband in Cambodia

Cambodian enterprise ISP SINET has chosen Nokia to launch new, high-speed broadband services in the country.

Selected for its quality and technical expertise, Nokia will help SINET roll out a nationwide access network that will start in major residential and gated communities, locally known as borey and housing apartments in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.

SINET will deliver broadband services targeted residents living in newly-built gated borey and housing apartments with the Nokia Gigabit-capable Passive Optical Network (GPON) Mini Optical Line Terminal (OLT). Providing customers with high-speed, high-quality internet access, Nokia's GPON solution will form the foundation for a suite of future smart-home services SINET will provide including video streaming and home-security systems.

Meta Sy, CEO of SINET, said: "The Cambodia market is crowded with low-quality residential broadband services available at low prices using off-the-shelf access equipment with little consideration for long term quality and reliability. When we decided to deploy GPON in borey and housing apartments, we wanted a quality-based and future-proof offering that would set us apart from the competition. That means the service has to be on-par with international broadband standard in terms of speed, reliability, efficiency and ease of troubleshooting."

Sebastien Laurent, head of Thailand and Cambodia at Nokia, said: "Our Mini OLT is very efficient for delivering high-speed broadband services to low-density gated communities and in-building deployments and, at the same time, helps save space and thus OPEX. With Nokia GPON technology, the country's first such deployment will address the growing customer demand for affordable ultra-broadband services at home."
