Nokia introduces intelligent network solutions

Nokia's Intelligent Access solutions allow operators to offer gigabit services even in areas where it's not feasible to bring fibre all the way to the home.

Nokia is introducing its Intelligent Access technologies, including the first wireless PON solution on the market and a Wi-Fi solution, to help operators meet increasing ultra-broadband demand.

The wireless PON solution combines Nokia’s Passive Optical Network (PON) technology with WiGig wireless technology, allowing operators to offer customers gigabit services without the need to bring fibre all the way to the home or building.

The solution is easily mounted on telephone poles, street lights or building facades and uses beamforming to create a meshed network that brings connections of up to 1Gbps to homes from as far as 300 metres away.

Menawhile, the Nokia Wi-Fi solution for carriers provides gigabit coverage to every corner of the home by minimising the risk of dead zones and interference.

Poor in-home-connectivity is a very common problem operators get called up about, and one of the main challenges is intermediate interference caused by other Wi-Fi devices or non-Wi-Fi devices such as microwaves, cordless phones or wireless game controllers.

Nokia’s Wi-Fi solution uses Broadcom’s Air-IQ technology to identify up to 17 such interferences (the market standard is around four), after which Nokia’s wireless gateways steer devices clear of interference.

Nokia is showcasing its Intelligent Access technologies at the Broadband World Forum in Berlin between 24 and 26 October.
