Nokia has announced that Nepalese ISP Subisu Cablenet has deployed its 100G backbone optical network to meet growing subscriber demand for more network capacity. Subisu can now upgrade its network to 1Gbps, while customers in underserved areas will be able to enjoy high speed broadband and high definition IPTV. The company teamed up with Nokia in May 2018 to step up its FTTH rollout and has now deployed the Finnish vendor’s 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology at eleven locations across the country, delivering 100G optical technology to ensure higher capacity and reach, as well as easy scalability.
Subisu CEO Binaya Mohan Saud commented: ‘With this initiative, we will be able to realise our business objective of adding new revenue streams and bringing the latest services to our subscribers. We have a long-standing relationship with Nokia and are excited to leverage their solution and expertise for this crucial initiative. This project will also help us to differentiate our services based on the quality of networks.’
