SINET expands into residential market with Nokia's high-speed fiber to the home solution

Press Release

  • Cambodia's leading Internet Service Provider (ISP) for enterprise enters residential market with fiber to the home (FTTH) services
  • Nokia solution delivers greater speeds per user, and up to 50% savings in operating costs

19 March, 2019

Phnom Penh, Cambodia  - SINET, Cambodia's leading ISP for enterprise businesses has chosen Nokia to launch new, high-speed broadband services in the country. Selected for its quality and technical expertise, Nokia will help SINET roll out a nationwide access network that will start in major residential and gated communities, locally known as borey and housing apartments in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.

SINET will deliver broadband services targeted residents living in newly-built gated borey and housing apartments with the Nokia Gigabit-capable Passive Optical Network (GPON) Mini Optical Line Terminal (OLT). Providing customers with high-speed, high-quality internet access, Nokia's GPON solution will form the foundation for a suite of  future smart-home services SINET will provide including video streaming and home-security systems.

Meta Sy, CEO of SINET, said: "The Cambodia market is crowded with low-quality residential broadband services available at low prices using many off-the-shelf access equipment with little consideration to long term quality and reliabilty. When we decided to deploy GPON in borey and housing apartments, we wanted a quality-based and future-proof offering that would set us apart from the competitions. That means the service has to be on-par with international broadband standard in terms of speed, reliability, efficiency and ease of troubleshooting which are key criteria why we selected Nokia."

Sebastien Laurent, head of Thailand and Cambodia at Nokia, said: "We offered SINET the best option for their specific deployment needs. Our Mini OLT is very efficient for delivering high-speed broadband services to low-density gated communities and in-building deployments and, at the same time, helps save space and thus OPEX. With Nokia GPON technology, the country's first such deployment will address the growing customer demand for affordable ultra-broadband services at home."

About the solution:

  • Nokia 7362 Intelligent Service Access Manager (ISAM) Dense Fiber (DF) -16GW gives new flexibility in fiber deployments and helps optimize the fiber business case
  • Nokia Mini OLT supports up to 8x 10GigE uplinks and 16-port GPON or 4-port XGS-PON/TWDM-PON downlinks and is capable of boosting the speeds of fiber networks
  • Nokia 7368 ISAM ONT G-010G-Q provides a GPON interface to the subscriber and paves the way to deliver premium triple-play services in a FTTH environment
