Nokia explains benefits of Quillion chipsets for broadband operators

Nokia today launched Quillion chipsets targeting more revenue from gigabit broadband operators.
Nokia Finland jobQuillion chipset will allow broadband operators to easily introduce 10G PON in their fiber networks and to serve more users from access nodes.

“Quillion chipset is designed to deliver gigabit broadband to every home, using broadband technologies like fiber to complement 5G in massive scale access networks. This allows operators to efficiently connect more people with higher speeds, and positively impacts their business case,” Sandra Motley, president of Fixed Networks at Nokia, said.

Nokia said the Quillion chipset powers Nokia’s 16-port Multi-PON line card, which supports both GPON and NG-PON on each port, for operators planning to roll out next-generation fiber access networks. This allows operators with an existing GPON network to switch on NG-PON services on each port without recabling or disrupting the GPON service.

Nokia said it has optimized Quillion chipsets to allow for low-latency applications that are critical for 5G transport and has built-in programmability to support intents that pave the way toward automated workflows, such as network slicing for 5G transport.

The Quillion chipset helps to reduce rack space by 50 percent and power consumption by 10 percent. Nokia’s enhanced copper solutions with Quillion chipsets enable operators to support more customers without increasing the cabinet size.

“Nokia’s Quillion chipset incorporates time-critical and low-latency capabilities, enabling the use of 5G for both access and transport applications by customers,” Julie Kunstler, principal analyst at Ovum said.
