Nokia has announced that Cambodian ISP SINET has chosen to deploy its XGS Passive Optical Network (XGS-PON) solution to address the growing demand for high speed broadband in the business and enterprise market. Nokia’s XGS-PON solution will be initially deployed in the capital Phnom Penh before being expanded to other cities and regions. Once deployed, SINET’s future-ready network will be able to address the demand for more capacity and support enhanced service offerings and new use cases, such as smart cities and 5G backhauling. The deployment, which includes the upgrade of the existing Nokia fibre access nodes, will be completed by the end of 2022.
‘As the digital ecosystem becomes all-pervasive, enterprises need an exceptional network reliability along with ultra high speed. We are committed to providing a world-class network experience to our business users so they are able to deliver the best possible services to their customers,’ stated Diep Kong, CTO of SINET, adding: ‘We are already using Nokia’s GPON solution and are confident that its field-proven XGS-PON solution will allow us to provide a differentiated experience to Cambodia’s enterprises. Nokia has received the Type Approval of XGS-PON equipment from the Telecommunication Regulator of Cambodia (TRC), which proves us the quality of the solution and the readiness to deploy in the Cambodia market.’
