XGS-PON Deployment

This new network is powered by Nokia's Quillion chipset, which allows for XGS-PON deployment and is ready for 25G PON when Valoo wants to add more capacity.

In a statement, Valoo stated, "With Nokia's advanced Lightspan multi-gig fiber broadband solution, we can provide our customers with the best possible technology there is in the fiber world. The solution enables us to deliver network connection to multiple customers using the same fiber and accelerate internet connections up to 20 gigabit and beyond. With Nokia's new Altiplano controller, we can bring advanced open access network solutions to the Finnish market.

"And last but not least, Nokia's multi-gig fiber has a 95% smaller carbon footprint thanks to its energy efficiency gains compared to traditional point-to-point solutions. We are the first fiber company in Finland executing Nokia's multi-gig fiber to customers, starting this spring."
