Nokia is deploying its XGS Passive Optical Network (XGS-PON) solution for Cambodian internet service provider SINET as demand for high speed enterprise connectivity escalates in the market.
The initial deployment will take place in the capital Phnom Penh, with CommsUpdate reporting that Nokia will expand the solution to other cities and regions of Cambodia. SINET aims to prepare its network to deal with escalating demand for capacity as well as use cases such as 5G backhauling and smart cities. Nokia will upgrade its existing fibre access nodes as part of the deployment, which it expects to complete before the end of this year.
Diep Kong, CTO of SINET, said: “As the digital ecosystem becomes all-pervasive, enterprises need exceptional network reliability along with ultra high speed. We are already using Nokia’s GPON solution and are confident that its field-proven XGS-PON solution will allow us to provide a differentiated experience to Cambodia’s enterprises.”
