Nokia and TDC NET upgrade Denmark's fibre network

News

The Finnish vendor says it is the sole supplier for the nationwide refresh.

TDC Net, the Danish infrastructure company, has chosen Nokia to connect more than 1 million homes and businesses in Denmark with passive optical network fibre to ultra-broadband.

Cities for starters

Starting in Copenhagen (pictured), Odense, Aarhus and Alborg, XGS-PON is being implemented for some existing customers as well as to deploy fiber addresses.
 
TDC NET provides infrastructure on a wholesale basis to other service providers for resale to retail customers.

In addition to providing a platform for residential broadband, TDC NET is moving towards a converged network that will use both GPON and XGS-PON technology for consumers and to support enterprises with ultra-broadband services.

The single fibre access platform will allow TDC NET to streamline its service delivery and to increase revenues.

Aggregated traffic

Michael Fränkle, Executive Vice President, Head of Technology at TDC NET said: “The demand for higher speeds is exponentially increasing.

"With Nokia’s ISAM FX converged platform we will be able to serve residential customers and enterprises from the same platform and deliver the Gigabit experience they need in their daily life and to run their business. Fiber deployment is a key contribution to our strategy. Nokia’s superior technology will play a key role in realizing this for the benefit of our customers.”
 
Nokia ISAM FX is a high-capacity access node for massive scale fiber roll-outs. Usually located in telecom central office, it connect thousands of users via optical fibre, aggregates their broadband traffic and sends it deeper in the network.

The fiber access node supports multiple fiber technologies including GPON, XGS-PON, 25GS-PON and Point-to-Point Ethernet to deliver a wide range of services with the best fit technology. .
