Nokia announced an FTTH deal with fiber service provider Wire 3 for rolling out a 10G network along Florida’s Atlantic Coast including the cities of Edgewater and New Smyrna Beach.
Wire 3 is growing its network from Jacksonville to Miami, with planned deployments in Volusia, Brevard, Indian River and St. Lucie counties. The deal includes fiber access nodes for the central office, fiber modems for customer homes, service routers, Wi-Fi gateways and Nokia’s Altiplano broadband network controller.
Jason Schreiber, Chief Technology Officer, Wire 3, said: “We want to get to 15,000 homes passed a month. When it comes to subscriber activation and service provisioning, automation will be key. We are using Nokia’s Altiplano platform which will be our main OSS Platform and all other systems will integrate and work through it.”
