Nokia has been selected as partner vendor to supply broadband equipment which will bring 10 Gb/s fiber to Telekom Slovenije’s fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network. The deployment of the new network will start this year.

The deployment of the Quillion chipset-powered Nokia ISAM FX series will replace some existing access nodes and will also support the newly built FTTH network which covers the entire country. Nokia’s solution will enable Telekom Slovenije to immediately offer up to 10 Gb/s services for residential and business customers, with the option in the future of evolving to 25 Gb/s PON network to support advanced services.

“Telekom Slovenije is committed to investing in the most advanced technology in order to deliver our users the most innovative products and services and the best customer experience. Utilization of the new XGS-PON technology means high-speed and higher-quality fixed broadband connections. In addition to the needs of remote-workers, faster and better connections are needed for new TV and video services, and increasingly higher quality video technologies such as the 4K technology and virtual reality. Also, high capacity fiber networks complement our mobile network and strengthen our position in the upcoming 5G world,” said Mitja Štular, CTO of Telekom Slovenije.

“The global investment in fiber highlights the competitive advantage that ultra-fast networks bring. Nokia is the leader in 10Gb/s symmetrical PON and the only vendor to enable a smooth evolution to 25G speeds. We are proud to work with Telekom Slovenije to bring high-speed broadband to customers on the largest FTTH network in Slovenia,” said Sandy Motley, President of Fixed Networks at Nokia.
