Telenor Deploys Nokia's VDSL in the Artic

Telenor is using Nokia's VDSL equipment to bring IP-based TV and other services to Svalbard, one of the world's northernmost settlements. At 78 degrees north, the Svalbard archipelago, also known as Spitzbergen, forms one of the world's most northern settlements. Sixty percent of the area is covered by glacier, and the inhabitants experience the extremes of long polar nights and summer-long midnight sun.
Under the deal, Nokia will supply its latest generation D500 IP DSLAM and a range of support services.
