ONE Broadband, a Hinduja Group company for Telecom Data Services for Home & Enterprise segments, has partnered with Nokia to deploy Gigabit Passive Optical Networking (GPON) technology. ONE Broadband said that with this partnership, it will be able to meet the broadband needs of its customers irrespective of network congestion.
Under this partnership, ONE Broadband will use Nokia's GPON technology along with its Broadband Network Gateway (BNG), Carrier Grade NAT (CGNAT) and Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), to provide 2Gbps broadband connections to home users. The project will also allow ONE Broadband to upgrade bandwidth to symmetrical 10Gbps for enterprise customers, said company.
ONE Broadband will be able to provide differentiated and enhanced services to its customers with the help of Nokia BNG. The entire network would be based on MPLS technology and handle hundreds of Gigabits of traffic per second, enabling ONE Broadband customers to consume voice, video and data services at lightning speed.
According to broadband firm, the technology will be initially deployed in the metropolitan cities of Mumbai and Delhi, followed by deployment in Bangalore and Nagpur. Subsequently, the technology will be deployed in other parts of the country.
“Growing demand for advanced services, like ultra-high speed broadband, OTT and 4K Video transport, has created the necessity for a high-capacity fiber network. We want our customers to experience the best possible speed and network experience, and we believe that Nokia's technical expertise will allow us to offer differentiated services to our customers,” said Yugal Sharma, Chief Executive Officer at ONE Broadband.
According to Nokia, Nokia Broadband Network Gateway (BNG) optimizes reach, coverage and capacity by using fixed and wireless technologies in a hybrid access environment. The technology has the capability to provide all next-generation services at low cost and high speed with the ability to monetize the network by offering value added services like Deep Packet Inspection. Whereas Nokia GPON solution allows service providers to generate more revenue and deliver more speeds and services. It is especially sturdy and suited for the Indian environment.
“We are thrilled to work with ONE Broadband in their quest to provide better quality services to their customers. Indian cable operators are in the midst of a digital transformation, and with this deployment ONE Broadband will be able to grow its business by efficiently addressing the customer's need for more capacity and a speedier broadband network,” said Vinish Bawa, head of Emerging Business India at Nokia.
