Nokia’s Wireless PON: lightening the burden of legacy

Rupert Wood Research Director

"Full fibre FTTP seems like an impossible capex challenge for some operators; the flexibility of combining mmWave and PON should actually help accelerate the process of dense fibre roll-out."

Nokia's new wireless PON solution integrates GPON with WiGig, allowing a more-flexible approach to deployment of gigabit home access. It will be of particular interest to fixed operators, many in Europe, with a heavy burden of historical baggage.
