NOKIA: Nokia expands G.fast deployment options, facilitates massive roll-outs for operators

* Nokia extends G.fast micro-node portfolio with solutions that provide
higher densities and longer looplengths from cabinets and distribution
points
* Nokia brings programmability and automation to the copper access network to
accelerate G.fast deployments by 50 percent
* Software-defined networking and network function virtualization (SDN/NFV)
improve accessibility, serviceability and turn-up time

Espoo, Finland - Nokia has expanded its portfolio of G.fast micro-nodes to
help operators accelerate ultra-broad
b
and deployments and
deliver faster data speeds to end-customers using existing copper networks.
The G.fast micro-nodes provide a simple, flexible plug-and-play solution that
can
scale in line with demand, allow for both distribution point and cabinet
deployment models
and cut roll-out times in half.

Service providers are increasingly turning to technologies like G.fast, which
uses existing copper networks to deliver fiber-like speeds to customer over
short distances, to meet growing demand for gigabit services. However, to
achieve these speeds, G.fast technology typically requires the deployment of
micro-nodes to be installed close to end-users. This can be challenging for
operators to deploy, configure and manage at scale.

To help operators scale and accelerate G.fast deployments, Nokia is
strengthening its portfolio of micro-node solutions to help:

* Deploy more G.fast - Nokia's industry-leading transmission and vectoring
technology allows operators to deliver G.fast over longer distances and to
more users from a single node. As a result, G.fast can now be used from
cabinet, pole, manhole or in-building locations, providing a range of
cost-effective deployment models.
* Deploy G.fast quicker - Zero-touch provisioning allows operators to quickly
power up and auto-configure each node and avoid local software loading and
local provisioning. This provides a "connect-and-go" option which reduces
time of deployment by 50 percent.
* Deploy G.fast better - Accessibility and serviceability of G.fast
micro-nodes is improved with SDN/NFV and NETCONF/YANG capabilities. Nodes
are pre-provisioned from the cloud and seamlessly deployed in the network.
This helps operators to efficiently scale and manage the network from any
location.

Federico Guillen, president of
Nokia's Fixed Networks business group, said:
"Nokia's G.fast micro-nodes enable operators to further extend the benefits of
G.fast without the added complexity or time once required to do this.
Flexible deployment options for both larger and smaller systems are key to
optimizing the business case for massive G.fast roll-outs. We also use
SDN/NFV to simplify and automate the management process and deliver tangible
benefits to operators - allowing them to accelerate G.fast deployments and
extend ultra-broadband services to more people, quickly"

Teresa Mastrangelo, senior analyst at Broadbandtrends, said
: "The ability to support a wide range of use cases in a cost-effective manner
is key to wide-scale deployment of G.fast. These additions to the Nokia
G.fast portfolio provide operators with the necessary tools to meet these
objectives in a competitive manner."

Nokia's expanding G.fast solution encompasses a number of products that help
eliminate the complexity associated with massive scale deployments.
Supporting a number of deployment scenarios, the portfolio includes unique
micro-nodes that provide a wide range of capacity options for FTTdp and FTTN
deployments. New in the expandedNokia micro-nodesolution:

* Nokia 7368 ISAM SX-8F - Eight port, sealed G.fast micro-node, designed for
easy operations to enter buildings in FTTB/MDU deployments
* Nokia 7368 ISAM MX-6 - New G.fast line card for Nokia's high density
modular micro-node, allowing operators like BT Openreach to deploy G.fast
from cabinet locations
* Nokia Access Controller - Cloud-based controller automates and simplifies
deployment, maintenance and evolution of the access network in a
traditional, SDN, or hybrid management environment

With several customers deploying Nokia's G.fast solution includingBT
Openreach,Chunghwa Telecom,A1 Telekom AustriaandEnergia Communications, along
with new technology innovations such as XG-FAST, Nokia remains committed to
providing operators with a wide range of copper technologies essential to
meet growing end-customer demand for gigabit services.

Did you know?

* G.fast requires vectoring to perform at its best and Nokia is the global
leader in vectoring technology. Combined with an extension of loop lengths,
this is key to enable cabinet-based deployments.
* Nokia is working with the Broadband Forum to address the evolution to
SDN-enabled access networks and bring standardization based on NETCONF and
YANG.
