Delta Telecom picks Nokia to modernise network

26 Oct 2022

Nokia has expanded its long-term strategic relationship with Delta Telecom, owner of the largest internet backbone network in Azerbaijan and the Caucasus region. Nokia will provide a nationwide core IP and Optical DWDM network enhancement with 400G-capable architecture to ensure Delta has the capacity, flexibility, and reduced power consumption to deliver the best possible customer experience for the future.

Delta Telecom will modernise and launch a 400GE-based IP/MPLS backbone in the Baku metropolitan area and will also modernise its nationwide IP/MPLS network with 100GE capacity to accommodate rapid traffic increase in the Caucasus region. This will be the first 400GE IP technology deployed in the region. The joint project with Nokia will allow Delta Telecom to provide its customers with improved SLAs, full end-to-end services resiliency, five times higher bandwidth capacity, and faster services reconvergence. The new 10/100G traffic will allow increased existing capacity and meet new public transport and local traffic demands.

For the modernisation, Delta Telecom selected Nokia’s 7750 Service Router platforms, powered by Nokia’s FP4 chipset, and the 1830 PSS (Photonic Service Switch) optical platform with Nokia’s Photonic Service Engine technology, to significantly expand capacity across its core routing and transport network for future services.
