Initial Deployment

The XGS-PON solution allows Baktelecom to provide 10 Gbps broadband connections to homes and businesses. Baktelecom will also deploy Nokia's mesh Wi-Fi Beacons to ensure customers receive the best Wi-Fi coverage and performance throughout their homes.

Baktelecom said: "With Nokia's XGS-PON, we not only become a leading provider of these next-generation services in Azerbaijan but also offer ultra-fast fiber connectivity to wholesale broadband providers, and, in turn, to residential and business customers."

Future Upgrade

Nokia's solution allows Baktelecom to seamlessly upgrade the fiber network to 25G PON to increase capacity. The 25G PON solution works alongside GPON and XGS-PON on the same fiber, allowing Baktelecom to use its existing fiber network to offer 10 Gbps services and beyond to its customers.
