Cable Bahamas taps Nokia for FTTH deployment

Cable Bahamas taps Nokia for FTTH deployment

Nokia will deploy its XGS-PON equipment for Cable Bahamas’s new fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network, as part of the operator’s comprehensive network upgrade.

The upgrade process is set to bridge the next four years and aims to introduce broadband to regions in the Bahamas that presently have no access to fibre connectivity.

Nokia is the only FTTH equipment provider for the project, offering its full range of solutions to Cable Bahamas. The operator says this will decrease its operating costs via an automated design and deployment process which will enable faster service implementation.

Stephen Curran, Chief Technical Officer at the Cable Bahamas Group, said: “At the end of this exercise we will boast the most advanced FTTH network in the entire region with XGS-PON technology.”

Osvaldo Di Campli, Head of Latin America at Nokia, said: “Upgrading fixed networks is vital to maintain a positive user experience and is a step forward for the use cases of the future that will require gigabit connectivity. With this new XGS-PON deployment, Cable Bahamas will have one of the most advanced networks in the region.”

The deployment aims at providing connectivity to 99% of the 80,000 business and residential addresses in the Bahamas’ most populated island, New Providence, by 2026.
