Nokia has announced what it says is the world’s first commercial 25 Gbps symmetrical PON fibre broadband system. The system is based on Nokia’s Quillion chipset and existing next-generation PON access platform and line cards. The system can support 5G mobile transport as well as true 10G service for enterprises.
Nokia said that all customers with 10 Gbps Quillion boards will also have 25 Gbps capabilities in their network. Nokia 25G PON can co-exist with GPON and XGS-PON on the same infrastructure, allowing companies to add 25 Gbps in overlay without disrupting existing customer services. This will allow them to add 25G PON quickly and efficiently, when and where needed.
Chunghwa Telecom said the company was ready to test the Nokia system and get it into the field.
