DALLAS — Frontier Communications, an integrated U.S.-based communications provider delivering voice, data, high-speed internet and video services, will deploy Nokia's XGS-PON1 technology to deliver faster broadband speeds to business and residential customers. The phased roll out of the new enhanced services will initially focus on the greater Dallas/Fort Worth areas of Texas before expanding to the rest of the state along with Florida and California.

Supporting Evolving Mobile Backhawl Requirements
Using Nokia's XGS-PON solution, Frontier can enhance the reliability, flexibility, and scale of its network to quickly expand its addressable markets, support evolving mobile backhaul requirements and increase competitive advantage. Nokia's next-generation fiber technology also enables Frontier to quickly expand its current high-speed service offering to deliver new 10 Gbps symmetrical broadband speeds using its existing, fiber-rich network.

"As demand for gigabit and symmetrical services grows, the use of next-generation fiber will play a critical role in providing the ultra-broadband services customers require today and in the future, said Federico Guillén, president of Nokia's Fixed Networks. "With a proven track record of next-generation fiber technology deployments, we were able to demonstrate how our XGS-PON solution could help provide a cost-effective path to 10 Gbps and the flexibility to evolve with demand."

Did you know?

  • Frontier is extending its Nokia 7360 deployment with next-generation PON line cards, which allow the company to deploy XGS-PON or TWDM-PON on the same card with a pluggable optic swap.

  • Nokia's Next generation PON supports both traditional and SDAN (Software Defined Access Network) approach. This gives flexibility to operators to move to SDN when ready

  • Nokia's temperature-hardened 7360 supports 100G network uplinks/rings in CO and many cabinet based deployment options.
    XGS-PON is the most cost-efficient way to evolve existing GPON networks to 10Gbps and symmetrical bit rates today.

  • By adding XGS/TWDM PON termination cards to existing OLTs, Frontier can easily evolve to 10Gbps symmetrical services and capture new service opportunities with only minor changes in the physical and BSS/OSS applications in the network.

  • Nokia is partnering with 14 service providers globally to deploy XGS/TWDM-PON solutions
