Ogi teams with Nokia to expand Welsh broadband

Telecoms giant Nokia has announced that it has become a ‘key technology partner’ for Welsh broadband company Ogi.

As part of Ogi’s plan to provide full fibre connectivity to more than 150,000 homes in south Wales, the company will now use the Nokia ISAM 7360 OLT.

The unit will be fitted inside Ogi’s street cabinets to light the fibre optic cables that will feed broadband and telephone services into homes and businesses. The integrated switching and multiplexing units come in two formats with the Nokia G-120G-E ONT being the small box fitted in the home whilst the more powerful Nokia XS-010X-Q ONT will be used for business customers.

The first three “active cabinets” containing the Nokia equipment went live during August in Haverfordwest in Pembrokeshire, Rhoose in the Vale of Glamorgan and Abergavenny in Monmouthshire.

Justin Leese, chief technology and operations officer for Ogi, said: “Their products offer great price/performance and scalability for our network as Ogi grows over the coming years, and customer demand for bandwidth increases. We’ve also had great support from their Services team who have been moving at pace with us as we build and test the network.”
