Ogero Trials Nokia Fixed Access Network Slicing Virtualization Solution

  • Nokia

BEIRUT, LEBANON — Ogero, Lebanon's fixed network services provider and engine for the Ministry of Telecommunication, trialed Nokia's Fixed Access Network Slicing (FANS).  The solution helps to solve the challenge of fixed infrastructure sharing and enables Ogero to create several discrete network slices over its existing fiber-to-the-home network in a fully programmable way. Once deployed, Ogero will be able to provide customers with a virtual slice that looks, feels and operates just like a physical network.  The solution leverages Nokia's market leading software-defined access portfolio with its cloud-native software platform Altiplano and SDN programmable Lightspan FX OLTs. 

Ogero provides all the telecom network infrastructure in Lebanon covering more than 12,000 KM of laid fiber optics cables reaching over one million subscribers.   The trial demonstrates how Ogero can use slicing to maximize the usage of its fiber access infrastructure and provide a virtual portion to mobile operators, data service providers (DSPs) and ISPs challenged with building their own networks. The solution ensures fair competition and facilitates equal opportunities in the market. With Nokia's FANS solution, Ogero can give a slice of its fixed access network to a virtual network operator (VNO) along with full control and autonomy of the portion allocated to them. The VNOs will also be able to establish individual performance metrics for the network and services they deliver to customers

Network slicing will change the competitive landscape in Lebanon by unleashing new FTTH business opportunities for the private sector and enabling service providers to compete for subscriber value. No longer locked into a single provider, end users will be able to choose the broadband provider that can deliver the best ultra-broadband service to meet their needs.
