- Nokia expands micro-node portfolio to support new deployment models for next generation PON, G.fast- and VDSL2-based services.
- New solutions drive intelligent access and provide greater technology flexibility for operators seeking to meet coverage and investment targets for ultra-broadband services
- Enhanced FTTx (Fiber-to-the-x) portfolio helps operators match specific use cases to deployment requirements, delivering additional options around form factors, speeds and power
- Copper-to-the-x solution reuses existing copper in the uplink to deliver high-speed services in areas where fiber is unavailable

| Espoo, Finland - Nokia is bringing several new products to its extensive FTTx portfolio so operators can accelerate ultra-broadband deployments and deliver more bandwidth to more people sooner. Nokia's enhanced FTTx portfolio includes fiber and high-speed DSL deployment options including a mini outdoor fiber node, a 212Mhz reverse-power G.fast solution and DSL backhaul remote nodes. |
Operators are evolving their access networks to better meet consumer demands for higher speeds and deliver on the promise of ubiquitous coverage. However, with vastly different challenges across their networks, a "one size fits all" approach does not always make sense. Having the flexibility to choose the right technology and deployment practice allows operators to overcome these challenges, fill coverage gaps in the network and deliver on the promise of ultra-broadband for all.
Nokia is introducing a number of new micro-nodes that provide operators with the flexibility, speed and scale required to effectively deliver ultra-broadband access and services to more people sooner. The FTTx solutions introduce several fiber and DSL access nodes, covering a wide range of applications and use cases including:
Roland Montagne, principal analyst at IDATE, said: "The ability to support a wide range of use cases in a cost-effective manner is key for operators seeking to bring ultra-broadband to more people sooner. Nokia already has an extensive portfolio of fixed access technologies and these new FTTx solutions will further enhance the toolkit, providing operators with the additional technology options they need to accelerate ultra-broadband access and meet objectives in a competitive manner."
Federico Guillén, president of Nokia's Fixed Networks Business Group, said: "As customer demand for ultra-broadband access continues to increase, operators need a wide range of technology options to meet evolving requirements and effectively address different use cases. With the industry's most advanced and complete portfolio of solutions across fiber, DSL, cable and wireless, Nokia is uniquely equipped to help operators address any situation they may face today and in the future."
Part of Nokia's Intelligent Access vision, the new FTTx solutions highlight the various ways Nokia is working with operators to deploy faster, better and smarter networks. Nokia will be demonstrating and showcasing these FTTx options in the Nokia Booth E104 at the Broadband World Forum in Berlin, October 24-26.
