Frontier enlists Nokia to deploy XGS-PON solution

7 Jun 2018

US fixed line operator Frontier Communications has contracted Nokia to deploy its XGS-PON solution, which it says will allow it to deliver new 10Gbps symmetrical broadband speeds using its existing fibre network. The phased rollout will initially focus on the greater Dallas/Fort Worth areas of Texas before being extended to the rest of the state, along with Florida and California.

Steve Gable, CTO and EVP at Frontier Communications, commented: ‘We are excited to be working with Nokia on solutions that bring multi-Gigabit services to the home and quickly scale to 10Gbps and beyond. Nokia’s platform will enable us to effectively support xDSL, point-to-point (P2P) fibre, GPON and 10Gbps PON requirements and gain the flexibility to seamlessly evolve into future PON technologies.’
