NOKIA Malaysia has announced that it has chosen Malaysian communications technology service provider Allo to deploy a gigabit fibre network in the states of Melaka, Johor, Negeri Sembilan and the East Coast of Malaysia.
The deployment, utilising Nokia’s Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) solution and Access Management System, is expected to complete by end of Q2 2021 covering nearly 150,000 homepasses, Nokia said in a statement
When completed, end-users will be able to access a high-speed broadband network and applications that require high capacity, it said.
The future-ready fibre network will enable Allo to increase its revenue as it will be able to support new use cases like smart cities, smart poles, edge automation, 5G backhaul, and enterprise services, Nokia said.
It will also enable Allo to better manage bandwidth in line with the requirement for different services and support the convergence of more services and users on the same infrastructure, allowing Allo to bring down operational expendoture and enhance revenue, it claimed.
“By utilising Nokia's expertise, we will be able to accelerate the rollout of fibre services over the next two years. This enables us to offer high-speed broadband to a greater number of people in keeping with the vision of Malaysia’s fiberisation initiative,” said Rodzi Ahmad, chief executive officer at Allo.
Stuart Hendry, head of Enterprise for Asia Pacific and Japan at Nokia, said: “We are excited to work with Allo on this crucial initiative for the rollout of the next-generation fibre services.
“Our field-proven solutions will help Allo support the growing demand for bandwidth and provide network flexibility. Nokia's solution will enable Allo to bring down costs and offer new and exciting services to its customers.”
