Nokia Announces Delivery of 1.5 Millionth Quillion-Powered PON Port for Broadband Fiber Nodes, Access Evolution

Espoo, Finland – Nokia today announced that it has reached the 1.5 million ports milestone for its broadband solutions based on the Quillion chipset, potentially reaching 50 million 10Gbps-ready subscribers and above. 500K ports are 25G PON compatible.

Carriers are increasingly looking to consolidate network services in an effort to reduce both capital and operating expenses. The increased speeds enabled by Quillion provide operators with the ability to offer next-generation enterprise services and mobile transport.

Chorus in New Zealand uses the Nokia Quillion solution to offer Hyperfiber Business packages that allow customers to take advantage of hyper connectivity for cloud computing, 4K/8K video transfers and other applications, promising that “Hyperfibre’s personalized broadband connectivity meets the growing needs of the Internet of objects, smart cities, cloud and big data solutions”.

Julie Kustler, Chief Analyst to Omdia mentioned“The industry is beginning to recognize that the value of their FTTH networks goes far beyond residential broadband. Industry 4.0, smart cities, power generation and business services all require high capacity green bandwidth and low latency at the network edge where FTTH is already in place.

The Quillion chipset now has more than 160 operator customers worldwide. Designed to offer multi-PON capabilities with GPON, XGS-PON and 25G PON all running on the same fiber, Quillion also reduces power consumption, with 50% less power needed in fiber installations than previous generations , which comfortably beats the EU Codes of Conduct for target broadband communications equipment and helps operators meet their emissions targets.

Sandthere Motley, president of Nokia’s fixed networks division, said “I am delighted that we have reached this milestone. Quillion’s multi-PON design and low power requirements have been instrumental in our ability to accelerate XGS-PON, especially with customers looking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and future-proof their networks.
