Hrvatski Telekom and Nokia completed a successful 25Gb/second fiber broadband trial of advanced 25G PON fiber technology in HT's Rijeka lab. Hrvatski Telekom is one of the first companies from the Deutsche Telekom Group to test Nokia's broadband 25G PON fiber.

25G PON technology is the latest generation of fiber network, which increases the speed of download and upload. It is ten times faster than GPON technology, first enabling gigabit broadband access in 2007. It is also two and a half times faster than XGS-PON technology applied from 2021. The equipment currently used by Hrvatski Telekom is 25G PON ready. The biggest advantages of 25G PON fiber are its large capacity, cost optimization, straightforward use, and easy installation.

"Ten years ago, technology was launched that enabled the transition to HDTV, without which many of us would not be able to imagine everyday life. Today, the 25G PON fiber network makes history with speeds 200 times faster than then. By being among the first in the world to test 25G PON fiber, Hrvatski Telekom shows its commitment to establishing and maintaining the best customer experience, following trends, and introducing cutting-edge global technology trends," said Ivan Uremović, Director of Access Network Strategy and Planning Department of HT.

“This demo shows that our FTTH network is fully compliant with the cutting-edge PON technology that will radically increase the capacity, bandwidth, and quality of our broadband service in the future. By already deploying Nokia’s single multipurpose G/XGS-/25G PON platform, we are showing exciting capabilities of the largest fiber network in Croatia capable of the fastest possible speeds,” added Boris Drilo, CTO of HT.

“25G PON can work seamlessly together on the same fiber hardware as existing GPON and XGS-PON broadband technologies We’re very proud to have completed this important trial which demonstrates the ease with which Communications Service Providers can add scale and capacity,” said Manfred Egger, Head of Business Development for Deutsche Telekom and Central Europe at Nokia.
