Nokia and Türk Telekom successfully test 25G PON technology in Turkey

Yusuf Kıraç , CTO , Türk Telekom , said : “ Our goal is to provide better service quality to our consumer and corporate customers with faster and higher capacity technologies . The 25G PON solution we tested with Nokia achieves approximately 10 times higher bandwidth than is possible with existing GPON networks .
“ Our trials demonstrated 20 Gbps for downstream and 9.1 Gbps for upstream which will enable us to support better quality for upcoming services such as 16K TV , 3D 360-degree videos and Augmented and Virtual Reality experiences .”

Nokia and Türk Telekom have completed the first successful

25G PON trial in Turkey , making it the fastest fibre network in the country . The laboratory trial took place in Türk Telekom Ankara Innovation Centre and achieved downstream speeds of 20Gbps over a single wavelength .
Özgür Erzincan , General Manager , Nokia Turkey , added : “ Global investments in fibre underline the importance of competitive advantage brought by high-speed networks . Nokia is a leader in 10Gb / s symmetrical PON and is a manufacturer to offer a seamless transition to 25G speeds . We are happy to support Türk Telekom in deploying all three generations of PON technology powered by Nokia ’ s Quillion chipset simultaneously , enabling Turkey ’ s first 25G PON network and providing high-speed broadband to customers in Turkey ’ s largest fibre ( FTTH ) network .”
