Telefónica Trials Nokia's XGS-PON With 5G in Mind

ESPOO -- Telefónica has successfully tested Nokia's XGS-PON (Passive Optical Network) next-generation fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) technology in its labs, delivering symmetrical broadband speeds of up to 10Gbps. Providing a simple upgrade path from the current GPON fiber technology deployed by Telefonica, XGS-PON will deliver faster broadband speeds to customers and facilitate Telefonica's 5G mobile network roll-out.

Telefonica's successful test of Nokia's XGS-PON solution reflects its commitment to continually develop the capabilities and speed of its network, and is an important step towards extending new ultra-broadband services to customers. With 10Gpbs symmetrical (downstream and upstream) capabilities, the use of XGS-PON will allow Telefonica to quickly deliver new gigabit services to customers using existing GPON platforms and technology.

The XGS-PON lab trial showed four times more upstream bandwidth than XG-PON1, demonstrating how the technology is especially suited for 5G, where it can be used for mobile backhaul as well as the aggregation of remote access node traffic.
