Orange deploys FTTH network in Jordan with Nokia

Orange for mobile phone usersOrange is deploying a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network to offer broadband access and triple-play services to homes and businesses in Jordan.

Orange already has existing broadband network on ADSL technology in Jordan. Orange Jordan will be delivering over 200 Mbps services needed to meet surging demand for high-speed residential and commercial services.

Orange Jordan will use Nokia’s GPON technology, fixed network professional services, as well as Applications and Analytics advanced network and device management software for the FTTH deployment.

Only five percent of the population accesses the internet via a fixed connection, a fraction of the six million total broadband subscribers, according to 2017 report concerning ICT in Jordan.

Orange Jordan utilizes Nokia’s GPON FTTH technology to deliver services to new customers as well as extend the service to subscribers already served by the existing ADSL-based network. Orange will use Nokia Network Analyzer, Home Device Manager, and Home Care solutions, to manage the GPON network and communication devices in customers’ homes.

“We have enabled fiber connectivity for more than 30,000 homes-and are now focused on fiberizing the rest of the network, which is expected to be up and running by the end of 2017,” said Orange Jordan CEO Jerome Henique.
