Nokia and Open Fiber Bridge the Digital Divide in Italy

  • Nokia Solution
  • Open Fiber
ROME — Open Fiber, a wholesale player in the Italian broadband market, selected Nokia for a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) rollout that will bring ultra-broadband services to the small towns and rural areas of Italy. The Open Fiber network will bring optical fiber from a point of presence to the customer's home and deliver speeds of up to 1 Gbps. In line with the founding principles of the Gigabit Society, the new fiber deployment provides open fiber with a future-proof network that can support next generation fiber technologies.

While drawing up its ultra-broadband strategy in 2015, the Italian government identified four types of clusters (A, B, C and D) in the country: where each municipality was assigned to one cluster based on factors including lower or higher housing density, presence of broadband coverage and market size.

Nokia has been selected as the sole supplier for clusters C and D (white areas) and will deliver products, services and software needed to plan, design, deploy and support the end-to-end active network infrastructure based on GPON technologies.

Nokia will also offer its professional services and customer engineering experience to fulfill solution validation and integration, installation and commissioning, on-site support, solution training and project management.
