Sinet deploys Nokia’s XGS passive optical network solution


Cambodian internet service provider Sinet has deployed Nokia’s XGS passive optical network solution to address the demand for ultra-high-speed broadband of enterprises.

Nokia’s solution will be initially deployed in the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh before expanding to other cities and region.

Once deployed, Sinet’s network will be able to address the demand for capacity and support new cases such as smart cities and 5G backhauling.

The deployment includes the upgrade of existing Nokia fibre access nodes. It will be completed in 2022.

Nokia's fibre access solution is powered by its Quillion chipset, which supports three generations of PON technologies: GPON, XGS-PON and 25G PON.

Nokia claims it is 50% more efficient than the previous generation of chipsets.

"We are already using Nokia's GPON solution and are confident that its field-proven XGS-PON solution will allow us to provide a differentiated experience to Cambodia's enterprises,” said Sinet chief technical officer Diep Kong.

“Nokia has received the Type Approval of XGS-PON equipment from the Telecommunication Regulator of Cambodia, which proves us the quality of the solution and the readiness to deploy in the Cambodian market.”

“Our industry-leading XGS-PON solution will allow Sinet to improve the overall speed and quality of broadband for its enterprise users, which will help them grow their revenues and attract new customers,” said Nokia head of Thailand and Cambodia Ajay Sharma.
