ONI Telecom deploys Nokia to provide 10G for customers in key Portuguese cities

News

The Nokia 1830 Photonic Service Demarcation (PSD) extends the optical network to ONI Telecom's customers’ premises.

Given the mission-critical nature of the wavelength and Ethernet services supported by the Nokia 1830 PSD, ONI needs to provide service level agreements (SLAs) up to the customer premises or demarcation point.

Nokia says the unit will give ONI the end-to-end visibility necessary to meet the SLAs for its retail enterprise and wholesale data centre interconnect and cloud service offerings.

Portuguese enterprise customers are increasing looking to cloud services for dedicated high-speed, low-latency access and data centre interconnect (DCI).

Equinix Global Interconnection Index expects the interconnection bandwidth to grow to more than 8,200 terabits by 2021, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 48%.

This is almost double the expected CAGR of IP traffic globally in the same period, which is 26%

Guaranteed services

Paulo Teixeira, from Engineering and Planning of ONI Telecom, said, “Nokia is helping us to provide cost-effective and guaranteed 10G wavelength services to our enterprise customers in key metro markets.

“With the growing importance of public-private cloud deployments, we are especially pleased to be able to offer our customers dedicated optical links with full service assurance to their premises.

Miguel Araújo, CT Head of Portugal at Nokia, explained, “The 1830 PSD is an exciting addition to our optical networking solution set. Paired with the Nokia NFM-T optical manager, it provides a…solution for dedicated optical links, especially useful for enterprise wavelength services and data centre interconnect."

Nokia claims the 1830 PSD is the industry's first universal Ethernet and Wavelength service demarcation device, based on a new MEF 3.0 standard. In a statement, Nokia said the device “will enable ONI to manage and monitor its entire transport network, end-to-end.

“It effectively extends ONI's optical domain management system, the Nokia NFM-T, across the entire network, up to and including the 1830 PSD at the customer premises.”
