Nokia and Mila bring 10G broadband to Iceland with fibre network upgrade

Nokia has announced it has been selected as the sole supplier by Mila to upgrade its fibre network to support new multi-gigabit services it plans to offer its more than 60,000 customers across Iceland. 

Nokia’s multi-PON solution will initially be deployed in the capital city of Reykjavik before being expanded to other cities and regions. 

As Iceland’s leading telecommunications provider, Mila has built an extensive access network that connects nearly every company and household in the country. Currently, more than 90% of the homes have access to 1Gb/s internet services. However, the growth of homeworking, gaming, enterprise applications and the digital economy is pushing the need for new multi-gigabit services. 

Leveraging Nokia’s multi-PON fibre broadband solution, Mila will establish a future-ready network that is capable of addressing growing consumer demand for more capacity and enhanced broadband services. The deployment, which includes the upgrade of existing Nokia fibre access nodes and optical line terminals, will be completed in 2024.

Nokia’s fibre access solution is powered by its Quillion chipset, which currently supports three generations of PON technologies including GPON, XGS-PON and 25G PON. With Nokia’s Quillion chipset at the heart of the solution, Mila will be able to quickly upgrade its network to the next-generation PON technology when it wants to add more capacity. It will also help Mila lower its power consumption by 50% and establish a smaller carbon footprint due to energy efficiency gains that help reduce operational expenses.
