Nokia Oyj (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) has enabled Elisa to successfully deliver high-speed and quality services to both residential and business consumers after allowing the firm to access the complete trial of XGS-PON technology in Finland.
The Nokia’s XGS-PON technology made it possible for Elisa to achieve the greatest and fastest broadband speeds in the whole country. With 10-gigabit network capabilities, the application of the advanced XGS-PON technology will enable Elisa to economically distribute the ultra-broadband access to its customers to meet the high demand of new high-speed and quality network services for both residential and business consumers.
The outcomes from the trials conducted were very encouraging as many reported that the test was the first and best of its kind in the entire Europe and beyond. According to Kalle Lehtinen, the VP Technology and Architecture at Elisa, the company is enthusiastically waiting for the new improved broadband to be fully available as this will speed up their network of commercial 5G services to a wide range of the company consumers.
Elisa had announced last year that it was working hand in hand with Huawei to improve their network speed of a 1.9 Gbps traversing the LTE network. However, the company did not disclose when such speed will be made available to the end users in the market. towards the beginning of this year, Nokia and Elisa had tried to test the cloud radio access network technology which allowed the cellular key stations to be managed within the cloud.
Finland is one of the countries well known for increased adoption of ultra-broadband and the demand for high speed and quality Internet access had continued to rise steadily. For instance, about 50% of the households in the country are connected to a fixed ultra-broadband wireless of 100Mbps. The demands for high-speed Internet services will continue to grow as more end users increasingly seek new Internet services that can support them in a wide range of sensors, plugs, and other items they need in their places of work and residential homes.
