Nokia announced today the deployment of its XGS-PON fibre technology by Frontier Communications Corporation to deliver faster broadband speeds to business and residential customers in the greater Dallas/Fort Worth areas of Texas, further expanding to the rest of the state along with Florida and California.
Frontier is a leading provider of communication services and offers a variety of services to residential customers over its fibre-optic and copper networks, including video, high-speed internet, advanced voice, and Frontier Secure digital protection solutions.
Frontier will use the XGS-PON solution to enhance the reliability, flexibility, and scale of its network to quickly expand its addressable markets, support evolving mobile backhaul requirements and increase competitive advantage.
Nokia’s next-generation fibre technology also enables Frontier to quickly expand its current high-speed service offering to deliver new 10Gbps symmetrical broadband speeds using its existing, fibre-rich network.
“We are excited to be working with Nokia on solutions that bring multi-Gigabit services to the home and quickly scale to 10 Gigabits and beyond. Nokia’s platform will enable us to effectively support xDSL, P2P fibre, GPON and 10Gbps PON requirements and gain the flexibility to seamlessly evolve into future PON technologies. Nokia’s solutions will enhance the customer experience by offering a Frontier fiber-powered internet that is as fast as it is reliable,” said Steve Gable, CTO and EVP at Frontier Communications.
Nokia’s Next generation PON supports both traditional and SDAN (Software Defined Access Network) approach. XGS-PON is the fastest and most cost-efficient way to evolve existing GPON networks to 10Gbps and symmetrical bit rates today. – Devdiscourse
