Nokia mentioned that the take a look at confirmed that 25G PON can co-exist with Telefonica’s present GPON resolution
Nokia introduced that Spanish operator Telefonica has efficiently trialed 25G PON know-how.
The Finnish vendor mentioned in a launch that the trial, the primary in Spain to reveal symmetric speeds of 20 Gbps, confirmed that 25G PON can co-exist with Telefonica’s present GPON resolution.
Telefonica, which at present has fiber deployed to nearly 60 million properties throughout its enterprise items, has validated with this trial that present GPON and XGS-PON broadband applied sciences can co-exist on the identical fiber with the 25G PON. Nokia famous that 25G PON delivers “enormous symmetrical bandwidth capability” that can assist new use circumstances and bandwidth necessities.
Gonzalo Garzón, head of mounted entry at Telefonica, mentioned: “Telefonica was the primary operator in Spain to offer gigabit connectivity, however we aren’t stopping there. Client bandwidth calls for by no means halts and thrilling functions, like VR gaming, will at all times be advanced to take advantage of accessible bandwidth. New FTTH applied sciences give us much more alternatives than dwelling connectivity. With their large uptick in capability we’ll be capable to supply new enterprise companies on the identical community.”
“Due to our Quillion chipset, this 25G PON proof of idea with Telefonica has demonstrated that the large bandwidth-capacity may be simply added to their present networks, co-existing with their present PON applied sciences. This implies prospects on the identical fiber line may be served with GPON, XGS-PON or 25G GPON, making it a lot simpler to handle improve cycles,” mentioned Bjorn Capens, VP for Europe at Nokia Fastened Networks.
Telefónica’s 5G community at present covers 83% of the Spanish inhabitants. The operator mentioned its 5G community supplies protection in 1,719 cities and cities throughout Spain.
The telco additionally famous that just about 1,700 cities and cities in Spain are lined by its 700MHz 5G service, which had been activated in February of this 12 months.
In July 2021, Telefónica formally introduced its resolution to award the contracts to deploy its 5G standalone radio networks throughout Spain to Nordic distributors Ericsson and Nokia.
Telefónica has just lately accomplished its 5G spectrum with the acquisition of 5 blocks of 200 MHz within the 26 GHz band.
“The acquired spectrum that may be deployed from 2023 will serve to supply use circumstances that require excessive speeds and efficiency and decrease latencies, which is able to catalyze the event of modern functions each within the industrial surroundings and geared toward most of the people that can place Spain on the forefront of digitization,” the telco added.
