Wireless PON Solution

Discipline: Product

Nokia’s Wireless PON (Passive Optical Network) solution is an industry first that allows operators to bring gigabit services to customers using WiGig wireless technology, eliminating the need to bring fiber to a home or building. Mounted to telephone poles, street lights or building facades, beamforming is used to bring connections of up to 1Gbps to WPON home units located up to 300 m away on the outside of a building or home. Operators can bring fiber to a street corner or neighborhood, and then use multiple access points in a row to connect homes and businesses. By combining fiber-to-the-home, operators can connect more people, sooner.
