Telecom equipment maker Nokia announced it has been selected by Allo, an Information and Communications Technology service provider in Malaysia, to deploy a gigabit fiber network in the states of Melaka, Johor, Negeri Sembilan and East Coast of Malaysia.
Allo will deploy Nokia’s Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) solution and Access Management System. The deployment on the network covering nearly 150,000 homepasses is expected to be completed by the end of Q2 2021
The future-ready fiber network will enable Allo to increase its revenue as it will be able to support new use cases like smart cities, smart poles, edge automation, 5G backhaul, and enterprise services, the company said.
Nokia’s solution will enable Allo to better manage bandwidth in line with the requirement for different services. Reportedly the fiber network will support the convergence of more services and users on the same infrastructure, allowing Allo to bring down OpEx and enhance revenue.
With the new network, Allo will be able to acquire relevant insights into network utilization as the network grows and new technology enablers are added. Nokia’s solution will also help Allo benefit from network simplification and easier management of the network.
In addition to the GPON roll-out, Allo is also conducting field trials with Nokia’s next-generation XGS-PON products which could be deployed where the network requires even greater bandwidth, up to 10Gbps symmetrical.
