Nokia & Ooredoo Qatar Achieve 40Gbps with Speeds Test
Nokia and Ooredoo Qatar announced that they had achieved remarkable download & upload speeds of 40Gbps during a pilot test conducted in Doha.
The test was done with Nokia’s next generation fibre technology over the existing single fibre network to achieve the speed. The new technology used in achieving the overlay is dubbed as TWDM-PON fibre technology (Time and Wavelength Division Multiplexing Passive Optical Network), alternatively known as NG-PON2 (Next Generation PON 2).
40Gbps are miraculous speeds that would definitely improve Internet usage across the world and improve data transfer and communication services.
Nokia & Ooredoo Qatar go a further mile to break a record of 40Gbps download & upload speeds
The technology used in the test delivers four additional wavelengths than conventional fibre cables with each layer giving 10Gbps speeds.
Ooredoo Qatar is a telecommunications company that offers telecommunications services such as data, calls and even pay TV. Their partnership with Nokia has seen them perform to great heights in the technological division.at the same time
What’s good about this new technology?
The existing fibre networks don’t need to be removed or changed. Ooredoo’s new tech only adds more capacity to existing networks without the need to add any new fibre.
The new technology also offers a bright future in the increase of data speeds up to 40Gbps and probably even more with further improvements to it.
The company also plans on expanding its network speeds after they launched their 1Gbps services alongside the 10Gps services as reported by The Peninsula Qatar.
The current system works on GPON which provides 2.5Gbps speeds, and the company is planning to upgrade to XGS-PON. The pilot program ensures that the company can effortlessly upgrade to TWDM-PON in future using the same ISAM FX access node as reported by Advanced Television.
This new feature offers a lot of promise for consumers and companies that rely a lot on data and communication as their main aspect. This test is the part of Qatar National Vision 2030 that aims at boosting knowledge to indirectly boost the economy.
