UG said it will work jointly with Nokia to upgrade existing areas with 10Gbps enabled infrastructure based on XGS-PON.
Based on Nokia’s Lightspan FX series for GPON and XGS-PON services, the rollout will enable UG to deliver enhanced broadband services, offer mobile transport services, create new business opportunities, and support in evolving towards a virtualized access-network or SDN.
Nokia will also provide UG with its portfolio of Wi-Fi mesh-enabled ONTs and Beacons.
