The fiber network will enable UG to extend new ultra-broadband and 10Gbps services to millions of residential and business customers across the region.

UG will work with Nokia to extend its fiber network into new areas and upgrade existing areas with 10 Gbps enabled infrastructure based on XGS-PON.

UG will use Nokia’s Lightspan FX series to deliver new enhanced broadband services to residential and business customers, offer mobile transport services, create new business opportunities such as off-loading mobile traffic and seamlessly evolve toward a virtualized access-network (SDN – Software Defined Networking).

Nokia will also provide Wi-Fi mesh enabled ONTs and Beacons to support the demand of its broadband customers.

Nokia said its advanced solution solves Wi-Fi issues in real-time to deliver a reliable, whole home broadband service essential for remote working, gaming, online TV, video streaming and downloading content across multiple devices. UG can also monitor in-home networks in real-time and further optimize Wi-Fi settings network-wide.
