Espoo, Finland – KPN has demonstrated 20 Gbps broadband speeds in a field trial with the Caresse animal hospital in Rotterdam. High speed connectivity is increasingly important in veterinary medicine where high resolution images need to be accessed in the cloud. 

KPN deployed Nokia’s state-of-the-art 25G PON technology in the field trial using its existing fiber network. Using Nokia’s Quillon chip, 25G PON can work alongside GPON and XGS-PON on the same fiber, and powered by the same access node.

“At KPN, we are doing everything we can to give everyone access to superfast internet by building a national fiber optic network,” said Babak Fouladi, chief technology and digital officer and member of KPN's board of management. “The demonstration in the Caresse animal hospital shows that very high speeds are vital for the digital future of the Netherlands. I am proud that we can contribute to this with our super-fast network.”
