Telefónica Hits 10Gbps with Nokia's XGS-PON FTTH

Telefónica has successfully tested Nokia's XGS-PON next-generation fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) technology in its labs, delivering symmetrical broadband speeds of up to 10Gbps. The technology is expected to facilitate Telefonica's 5G mobile network roll-out.

Nokia said its XGS-PON will provide a simple upgrade path from the current GPON fiber technology deployed by Telefonica.

The companies noted that the XGS-PON lab trial showed four times more upstream bandwidth than XG-PON.

Federico Guillen, president of Nokia's Fixed Networks business group, said: "Streaming services, gaming and HD video continue to drive demand for gigabit services, and the use of next-generation fiber technologies like XGS-PON will play a critical role in Telefonica's ability to deliver these enhanced services to customers - by wireless or fixed networks. The enhancements to our next-generation PON portfolio make it easier and more cost-effective for service providers to seamlessly evolve their existing fiber networks in line with demand."
