Dubai, UAE -- December 13, 2016

UAE-based telecommunications service provider du
has successfully tested Nokia's
Time and Wavelength Division Multiplexing Passive Optical Network (TWDM-PON)
innovative fiber technology in its lab, reaching aggregate speeds of 40 Gbps.

Nokia's TWDM-PON technology expands the capacity of du's fiber access network
by providing additional wavelengths over a fiber which collectively deliver
up to 40 Gbs. This enables significantly higher upload and download speeds.
Thanks to Nokia's unique next-generation Passive Optical Network solution, du

XGS-PON or TWDM-PON on a single fiber.

Currently offering 1 Gbps services in the UAE, du continues to innovate and
invest in technologies that will offer its business and residential customers
the speed and quality of service they expect. The rise in bandwidth will help
du improve the customer experience significantly for residential customers
and launch new services for the highly demanding business customers.

Jasim AlAwadi, Vice President - Network Infrastructure&Services, at du,
"With the increased use of smart devices and bandwidth-hungry applications by
our subscribers, the demand for an ultra-fast network also keeps increasing.

is proof of this. We are confident that our cooperation will take the
country's journey toward IoT and smart cities to the next level."

Rima Manna, head of the du customer team at Nokia, says:
"With its current strategy, du is very well positioned to evolve its network
now and in the long term, and meet the customer needs of one of the leading
broadband countries in the world. With this latest successful test, we
