ONE Broadband, a Hinduja Group company, provides telecom data services for home and enterprise segments in India, will use Nokia’s GPON technology along with its Broadband Network Gateway (BNG), Carrier Grade NAT (CGNAT) and Deep Packet Inspection (DPI).

The investment in advanced broadband technology from Nokia will assist ONE Broadband to provide 2Gbps broadband speed to home users and support enterprise customers to upgrade bandwidth to symmetrical 10Gbps.

ONE Broadband’s entire network would be based on MPLS technology and handle hundreds of Gigabits of traffic per second, enabling customers to consume voice, video and data services at better speed.

ONE Broadband’s engineers will use the GPON technology in the metropolitan cities of Mumbai and Delhi, followed by deployment in Bangalore and Nagpur. Subsequently, the technology will be deployed in other parts of the country.

“We want our customers to experience the best possible speed and network experience, and we believe that Nokia’s technical expertise will allow us to offer differentiated services to our customers,” said Yugal Sharma, chief executive officer at ONE Broadband.

“Indian cable operators are in the midst of a digital transformation, and with this deployment ONE Broadband will be able to grow its business by efficiently addressing the customer’s need for more capacity and a speedier broadband network,” Vinish Bawa, head of Emerging Business India at Nokia, said.

Nokia Broadband Network Gateway (BNG) optimizes reach, coverage and capacity by using fixed and wireless technologies in a hybrid access environment. The technology has the capability to provide all next-generation services at low cost and high speed with the ability to monetize the network by offering value added services like Deep Packet Inspection.

The Finland-based company said Nokia GPON solution allows service providers to generate more revenue and deliver more speeds and services. It is especially sturdy and suited for the Indian environment.
