Nokia launches Gigabit Connect to simplify gigabit broadband installation in apartment blocks

BroadcastNetworkingTop Stories

Nokia has launched Gigabit Connect to make it easier for fibre network providers to deploy gigabit broadband services in MDUs where the final connection leg is, via twisted pair or coaxial cables.

Fibre providers often encounter difficulties in bringing fibre all the way to every apartment in residential buildings. The age of the building can mean there is a lack of space or in-built ducting or legal issues might constrain the deployment. G.fast technologies can help by enabling operators to terminate the fibre in a central location in the building and then bridging to any existing television, data or telephone cables for the last leg. 

Nokia’s Gigabit Connect solution builds on G.fast capabilities, hiding its complexity and enabling the last leg connection to be managed as a fibre endpoint under a single pane of glass management interface. This is especially important for operators who focus on fibre-only deployment and who do not have expertise with technologies over copper twisted pair. Gigabit Connect can be deployed with no impact on existing network management and FTTH (Fibre-to-the-Home) services.

Gigabit Connect solution also delivers the same speed and low-latency experience for the end-user as full FTTH.
