Nokia and Bell Canada trial 25G PON fibre broadband technology

By

Finnish telecommunications vendor Nokia and Bell Canada have conducted a 25G PON fibre broadband technology test in North America at Bell’s Advanced Technical Lab in Montréal, Québec.

The trial validates that the GPON and XGS-PON broadband technology and future 25G PON can work together on the same fibre hardware, which is being deployed throughout the network today. 25G PON delivers symmetrical bandwidth capacity that will support new use cases such as premium enterprise service and 5G transport.

For the past decade, Nokia says Bell Canada has been rolling out fibre internet service to homes and businesses in Canada to urban and rural areas alike with next-generation broadband networks. With this successful trial, Bell can be confident that its network will absorb the increased capacity of future technologies and connect generations to come.

“As part of Bell’s purpose to advance how Canadians connect with each other and the world, we embrace next-generation technologies such as 25G PON to ensure we remain at the forefront of broadband innovation,” comments Bell Canada executive vice president and chief technology officer Stephen Howe.

“Our successful work with Nokia to deliver the first 25G PON trial in North America will help ensure we maximise the Bell fibre advantage for our customers in the years to come.”

“Nokia innovations powered the fibre networks and the connectivity lifeline that carried Canadian homes and businesses through the pandemic,” Nokia president Canada Jeffrey Maddox concludes. “25G PON innovations will drive the next generation of advances in our connected home experience.”

Bell and Nokia have a close working history. Both companies worked on the Canadian trial of 5G mobile technology in 2016. Bell continues to work with Nokia to build and expand its 5G network across Canada.

Nokia also supplies GPON equipment to Australian service provider nbn for FTTP deployment.
