Nokia and mo­bile oper­a­tor Oore­doo Qatar have achieved a sym­met­ri­cal 40 gi­ga­bit per sec­ond speed us­ing Nokia's Time and Wave­length Divi­sion Mul­ti­plex­ing Pas­sive Op­ti­cal Net­work fi­bre tech­nol­ogy in a trial in Jan­uary.


Nokia's TWDM-PON tech­nol­ogy is said to de­liver four ad­di­tional wave­lengths, each pro­vid­ing 10 Gbps sym­met­ri­cal speeds, even­tu­ally pro­vid­ing a to­tal of 40 Gbps. The ven­dor said the en­hanced speed will al­low the oper­a­tor to up­grade its net­works from the ex­ist­ing gi­ga­bit PON at speeds up to 2.5 Gbps to XGS-PON with speeds up to 10 Gbps and in the fu­ture to TWDM-PON at speeds up to 40 Gbps. The TWDM-PON tech­nol­ogy, also re­ferred to as Next Gen­er­a­tion Pas­sive Op­ti­cal Net­work 2 tech­nol­ogy, was de­ployed over Oore­doo's ex­ist­ing sin­gle fi­bre net­work. Nokia said the over­lay tech­nol­ogy is ca­pa­ble of adding more ca­pac­ity to ex­ist­ing net­works.
