Nokia to build optical transport network for Energie AG, Austria

AustriaEnergyTelecomTop Stories

Nokia has announced that it has been selected by Austrian utility and infrastructure company, Energie AG Oberösterreich, to build an optical transport network across 18 sites in Upper Austria. Energie AG will use the network to backhaul traffic from Fibre to the Home (FTTH) nodes in regional sites to two central sites. Deployment is already underway.

Energie AG Oberösterreich is a regional energy supply and infrastructure company. The group, with its subsidiaries and holdings, is active in the energy sectors, i.e. electricity, natural gas and heat, as well as in the waste disposal and water sectors.

A subsidiary of Energie AG, Energie AG Telekom GmbH is currently operating a fibre optic network which is spanning more than 7,000 kilometres. Currently, Energie AG’s fibre optic access network creates up to 6.4 Terabits per second of aggregated traffic for the optical transport network to carry. The capacity of the new transport network can be scaled to 10s of Tbs, providing Energie AG with plenty of room for growing demand and customer base.

“It has become very clear over the past two years that the scaling of fibre-based connectivity virtually everywhere is a key economic factor for any country,” said Patrick Langelaan, Vice President Nokia Enterprise CBT Europe South.”

Local and regional communications service providers can play an important role in providing this ultra-fast connectivity. We are excited to support Energie AG on its journey to connect Upper Austria with high-speed fibre access.”
