Nokia said that Subisu has chosen its GPON technology to expand the Nepalese Internet service providers’s network and connect with new customers. Subisu will deploy a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network in province 2 of Nepal to provide upgraded, reliable subscriber service, Nokia said. The FTTH network will provide Subisu users with a new class of ultra-broadband applications and services once deployed, including digital television, IPTV and high-speed Internet services up to 1 Gbps.
The Nepal Telecom Authority (NTA) chose Subisu to construct the FTTH network for eight districts in Province 2 to progress the Nepalese government's plans for a digital society linking 90% of the population to broadband services by 2020.
According to Nokia, GPON fiber technology will enable Subisu to support the government's efforts to supply a communication backbone that can deliver ultra-broadband services to households throughout the nation. With Nokia's 7360 Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM) FX GPON, Subisu will be able to address mass-market fiber deployments. The provider will also leverage Nokia's 7368 ONT and professional services to efficiently complete the project.
Subisu's selection of Nokia's GPON technology follows recent announcements that Spectra chose the systems vendor's IP/MPLS routing and GPON technology for a fiber-optic network build out, and ONE Broadband is also deploying its GPON technology in India to meet customers increasing demand for high-speed services and capacity.
