Nokia has been selected by Andean Telecom Partners Peru (ATP Peru) to support its rollout of digital infrastructure projects for both fixed fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and mobile (small cells) access in Peru.
This digital infrastructure will help SPs accelerate the deployment of telecom services. The first indoor deployment is at the Aventura Mall in the northern city of Chiclayo, while the FTTH deployment is taking place in the Barranco district of the capital city, Lima.
Nokia will install its cost-effective Small Cell AirScale Indoor (ASiR) system in public shopping areas at Aventura Mall. This includes the ASiR PicoRRH solution, which has multi-operator and multi-band support.
Nokia will provide its Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) solutions beginning with the Barranco district of Lima, leveraging its GPON technology to provide seamless fiber connectivity for residential, corporate, and mobile backhaul use. The solution will allow ATP to offer an open access neutral fiber network, capable of hosting several tenants or CSPs.
ATP is a wholesale optical fiber operator and digital infrastructure company with operations in Colombia, Peru and Chile. Among ATP’s ownership group is Digital Colony, one of the world’s largest digital infrastructure investment firms, focusing on data centers, macro cell towers, fiber networks and small cell networks.
“Nokia’s solutions allow us to offer neutral host digital infrastructure aligned with our customers’ needs. These investments will play a fundamental both in helping to narrow Peru’s digital divide and in laying critical groundwork for future 5G network deployments,” Gilles Pons de Vier, general manager, Andrean Telecom Partners Peru, said.
