21 Apr 2016

Wind Telecomunicazioni of Italy has contracted Nokia Networks to deploy fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) infrastructure in the cities of Bologna and Turin. Nokia says it will deploy a mix of ultra-broadband access technologies, including GPON and its 7302 Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM FD) access platform to enable Wind to use a mix of fibre and advanced copper technologies to extend coverage and deliver broadband speeds of more than 100Mbps. Stefano Takacs, Network Director at Wind, commented: ‘Wind is already delivering FTTH in Milan. By strengthening its network in Bologna and Turin, in collaboration with Nokia, it confirms its commitment to invest in the growth of ultra-broadband services in major Italian cities, providing its customers and cities with a highly reliable network than can offer the best TV and internet services.’
