Nokia Empowers Infrastructure Providers with Enhanced Altiplano Open Access Solution

Nokia has announced a significant enhancement to its Altiplano Open Access Solution, designed to provide new wholesale functionalities for infrastructure providers, thereby enabling them to maximize the monetization of their fiber networks.
NOKIAThe Network Wholesale Portal expands upon the existing capabilities that support Fixed Access Network Sharing (FANS) and L2/L3 bitstream services, while also delivering enhanced network insights, simplifying service management, and streamlining OSS/BSS integration efforts for Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

The core challenge for infrastructure providers lies in offering a variety of broadband wholesale services that can cater to the unique needs of their customers. Traditional wholesale bitstream offerings often lack visibility and control, while the more comprehensive FANS approach requires significant expertise and resources to effectively manage a dedicated slice of the network. To bridge this gap and provide a solution for ISPs that need network visibility but may lack the resources to define their own service offerings, Nokia has introduced the Network Wholesale Portal.

Nokia’s Network Wholesale Portal provides broadband wholesalers and neutral hosts with the flexibility to create service offerings that meet the requirements of ISPs of all sizes. The Altiplano Open Access solution features a transparent controller interface that allows ISPs’ Operations Support Systems (OSS) and support organizations to swiftly address any issues that may arise.

Simultaneously, the system and administrative controls remain in the hands of the wholesaler, reducing operational costs related to sharing Optical Line Terminals (OLT), Optical Network Units (ONU), and outside plant infrastructure. This simplification streamlines interactions to handle service requests and extend the service catalog.

Geert Heyninck, General Manager of Broadband Networks at Nokia, emphasized the significance of this enhancement, stating, “The business case of wholesale and neutral host providers depends greatly on their ability to onboard a variety of ISPs with different needs and expertise levels. Our enhanced Open Access solution caters to all ISPs. It empowers each with the tools and capabilities they need to efficiently manage and scale their network, and to deliver exceptional broadband services to their customers.”

Nokia’s commitment to providing cutting-edge solutions for the telecommunications industry continues to drive innovation and empower infrastructure providers and ISPs alike. With the introduction of the Network Wholesale Portal, the industry is set to experience greater flexibility, efficiency, and improved service offerings, benefiting both providers and end-users.
