Deliver universal broadband and a superior subscriber experience


The ISAM FD is a high-capacity multiservice access node platform for converged access networks designed to deliver ultra-broadband services to a large number of users in a rapid and cost-effective way.

The ISAM FD platform enables service providers to deploy any service, any deployment model and any technology. The availability of converged services gives flexibility to operators to choose the deployment model that best fits their business case.

For VDSL2 services, the Nokia FD platform offers high-capacity, vectored Vplus/35b that enables broadband speeds of 300 Mb/s and beyond. For fiber services, GPON and point-to-point access technologies are available.

There are two variants of the Nokia FD platform: FD-8 and FD-16. The compact form factor of the ISAM FD-8 shelf makes it ideal for deep fiber VDSL2 access with eight line terminal (LT) slots. The ISAM FD-16 provides industry-leading vectored VDSL2 port capacity with 16 LT slots. The ISAM FD platforms are the most widely deployed access platforms in the world, powering some of the largest FTTH deployments, open networks and advanced VDSL2 deployments worldwide.
