Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK) reported that it has reached its 100 customer milestone for the Quillion chipset-based broadband solutions that is utilized in next generation fiber and copper telecommunication networks. Quillion is being deployed in over 40 countries around the globe. The in-house Quillion based solutions began shipping in 2020. Sandra Motley, President, Fixed Networks Division at Nokia, said “Next generation access is accelerating. Consumers and businesses need more broadband, and that trend will continue. Operators need innovative solutions that will enable them to keep up with the demand, keep cost under control and future proof their networks, including using fiber for 5G transport. We have developed Quillion to ensure we can bring state-of-the-art solutions that our customers need.”
Ed Hyde, Chief Customer Officer, Chorus said: “New Zealanders have wholeheartedly embraced fiber broadband and are increasingly opting for full-speed gigabit plans. To stay ahead of the curve, we recently launched our next generation of wholesale fiber plans, the Hyperfibre product family. With Nokia’s Multi-PON solution we can offer a range of high symmetrical speeds – up to 8Gb/s – to businesses, schools, and consumers.
“Infrastructure businesses, like Chorus, play a critical role as New Zealand transitions to a zero-carbon future. Fiber is already by far the most energy efficient broadband technology available, adding Quillion powered access nodes that use 50 percent less power is nothing less than ground-breaking.”
Operators that leverage copper infrastructure to boost consumer speeds in places that do not have fiber available yet rely on Quillion.
