Nokia and KPN successfully test 25G PON in the Access Evolution animal hospital in Rotterdam

Espoo, Finland – Nokia announced today KPN has demonstrated 20Gbit/s broadband speeds in a field trial with the Animal Hospital Caresse in Rotterdam. Fast connectivity is becoming increasingly important in veating medicine where high resolution Pictures need until be approached inside the cloud. Symmetrical speeds of 20 Gbit/s could upload (or download) nearly 100 scans of 30 MB each in one second.

KPN deployed Nokia’s state-of-the-art 25G PON technology in the field trial using its existing fiber optic network. Using Nokia’s Quillon chip, the 25G passive optical network (PON) can run alongside GPON and XGS-PON on the same fiber and be powered by the same access node.

Babak Fouladi, chief technology and digital officer and member of KPN Board of Directors said: “At KPN, we are doing everything we can to give everyone access to super-fast internet by installing a national fiber optic network. The demonstration in the Caresse animal hospital shows that very high speeds are vital for the digital future of the Netherlands. I am proud that we can contribute to this with our lightning-fast network.”

Sandy variegated, President Nokia Fixed networkssaid: “We are delighted to have partnered with KPN on this exciting trial. Operators are now using fiber broadband networks to support both business and residential customers, increasing demand for higher speeds. When we designed our Quillion chipset, a key requirement was that we be able to support multiple PON technologies on the same fiber, giving operators the flexibility to offer different levels of service depending on customer needs.”
