Telecom gear maker Nokia said that it has been selected by Nepalese internet service provider Subisu to modernize its 1500 kilometres long backbone network spread across East and West Nepal.
As part of the engagement, Nokia said it has deployed its 400G single fiber solution to provide high-speed broadband to Subisu’s retail and enterprise subscribers.
“Nokia 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) platform offering Photonic Service Engine (PSE) enabled 400G single fiber, bidirectional Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) solution is now deployed across the country. This is the first operation of such a solution anywhere,” said the company.
Vinish Bawa, Head of Emerging Markets, Nokia India, said: “Our field-proven 1830 PSS solution is enabling service providers, like Subisu, to meet the growing capacity demand even as they enhance customer experience. We are pleased with the successful and timely completion of this crucial project to modernize Subisu’s optical network, and we look forward to working with them in the future.”
Nokia claimed that its 400G single fiber solution improves fiber capacity and helps Subisu enhance network resilience and reach while optimizing capex and reducing opex. The solution allows Subisu to easily scale the network to provide multi-terabits of capacity over a single fiber.
Binaya Saud, CEO at Subisu, said: “We have been working with Nokia for a long time now, and their industry-leading products and solutions are helping us provide best-in-class broadband services to our subscribers. Nokia was the sole vendor for this important project, and its solutions are enabling us to grow our subscriber base and provide a superior experience to our existing customers even as we future-proof our investments.”
