Fiber broadband for cable operators
Build a network today that meets your customers’ needs for decades to come
Getting to gigabit and beyond
Cable operators are facing greater challenges than ever before. Residential customers are demanding ever-greater bandwidth. Enterprise customers are demanding higher levels of service. And telcos, fiber overbuilders and wireless service providers are aggressively competing for your customers. Stay ahead of the game by strategically investing in a faster, more scalable network with higher reliability and lower operating expense.
Nokia fiber broadband solutions are leading the way, delivering three generations of PON technology on the same hardware: GPON, XGS-PON and 25G PON. And the same network on which you deploy these technologies today, can scale to 50G, 100G and beyond in the future. All with no active electronics or periodic maintenance in the outside plant. Whether you are evolving your DOCSIS-based Hybrid Fiber Coaxial (HFC) network or expanding into new areas, Nokia can provide you with a future-proof platform that can connect everyone and everything.
Nokia is the Market leader in XGS-PON
XGS-PON is accelerating worldwide and Nokia is leading the market.

Features and benefits
On every network metric, fiber provides superior results when compared to other access network options, including DOCSIS-based HFC networks. Fiber delivers:
All multi-gigabit speeds, from GPON at 2.5 Gb/s to XGS-PON at 10 Gb/s and even 25 Gb/s are available today.
Fiber’s capacity is inherently suited to symmetric downstream and upstream performance.
The physics of fiber, with 10,000 GHz of bandwidth, enables essentially limitless capacity.
Fiber networks have little to no active outside plant components, and regular maintenance is not needed. Fiber is durable, lasting 50-75 years.
Fiber’s lower noise levels and signal attenuation lead to lower latency and less jitter.
Lower power consumption, greater durability, lower maintenance, etc., deliver around a 50% OPEX savings with fiber compared to HFC.
Fiber uses 7-12 times less energy, and the environmental impact of mining copper is over 15,000 times greater.

More than just fiber-to-the-home
Residential. Business. Smart cities. Mobile transport. Industry 4.0. Growing your business successfully means delivering services for many, if not all of these.
With fiber, you can do it all on the same infrastructure. Generating more revenues and introducing services more quickly with lower operating expenses and higher customer satisfaction. Fiber is the fastest, greenest, and most widely deployed broadband technology. And it keeps getting better.
Welcome to the Fiber for Everything era.
Shining the light on next-generation cable network evolution
Cable operators are at a crossroads. For decades, premium service offerings and the DOCSIS® technology have enabled them to stay well ahead of telcos that chose to sweat copper assets. Now the situation is turning on end. Traditional cable TV services are steadily declining, and telcos and overbuilders are rapidly expanding their fiber footprint.
Cablecos need to gain clarity about what they will need to look like by the end of this decade in order to remain relevant and to be competitive. In this Analysys Mason report, Research Director Rupert Wood discusses their options, explains why an XGS-PON upgrade program should be central to any strategy, and how moving to fiber can yield more revenue opportunities than DOCSIS 4.0.
Nokia offers a full line of Optical Line Terminals (OLTs) in many sizes and form factors suited to any type of deployment.
