Nokia to provide Delta Fiber 5G services
Nokia once again enters Ericsson’s territory. The fiber to the home (FTTH) market in the Netherlands is a fast growing market. DELTA Fiber, part of Swedish investment company EQT, is growing rapidly, with plans to have 1 million homes and businesses connected to its network by the end of this year. Nokia is supporting the expansion with XGS.PON network equipment based on the Quillion chipset, which is also ready for 25G PON. All retail subscribers will receive XGS.PON capable receivers with the latest WiFi 6 standard and supporting Nokia’s WiFi mesh technology for superior network expansion within the home.
DELTA will manage the network with the aid of Nokia’s Altiplano Access Controller which enables network automation, faster innovation and simplified operations using Software Defined Access Network (SDAN) solutions. The deployment will combine Nokia SDAN technology with Microsoft Azure cloud-based services and Nokia’s developer ecosystem to equip DELTA with the tools the operators needs for digital transformation.
