iTWire – Nokia trials Google’s GFiber Labs 50G PON broadband speeds

Must read

Nokia today announced that GFiber Labs has successfully tested 50Gb/s broadband speeds over its existing fibre network.

Finnish telco vendor Nokia announced GFiber Labs, tech giant Google’s hub dedicated to transformative internet experience, has tested 50Gb/s broadband speeds over its existing fibre network.

This is the first live network demonstration of 50G PON technology in the US and shows how operators can easily use Nokia’s Lightspan MF fibre access platform to upgrade their fibre networks to meet the growing demand for faster, more reliable connectivity.

The trial builds on the 25G PON deployment GFiber Labs announced with Nokia last year and demonstrates how different PON technologies can be combined on the same fiber to evolve their broadband offerings.

Leveraging Nokia’s fiber solution, Google Fiber simultaneously ran the 10/25G PON along with 25/50G PON broadband service over its fibre network.

This showcased the network flexibility and scalability it can deliver to keep pace with the growing demand for multi-gigabit services in the future.

“This test with Nokia builds on the 25G PON deployment we announced together last year, paving the way for future improvements to our network that enhance customer experience in terms of speed, reliability, innovation, and support for future business cases that have yet to be defined,” said Google Fiber senior director product and billing Liz Hsu.

“Service providers need to be able to select the right technology, based on their needs and business case. It is why we already offer 10G and 25G today, are trialing 50G, and developing 100G – ultimately leading to a full range of PON technologies that can be mixed and matched on the same platform and the same fibre,” said Nokia vice president of broadband networks Geert Heyninck.
