Vocus Upgrades Optical Network With Nokia
Vocus enterprise, government, and wholesale customers will see a lift in their broadband speeds, the company says, with a major upgrade of its optical network now complete.
The telco has partnered with Nokia to set up 200G optical links between Brisbane and Darwin, as well as upgrading the network between Adelaide, Brisbane, and Darwin with Nokia’s 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS).
This will allow Vocus to provide high-quality optical service, said Michael Ackland, General Manager of Federal Government and Strategic Projects at Vocus.
“Over the last decade, we have leveraged Nokia’s field-proven solutions to provide a world-class experience to our customers. The successful modernisation of our optical network on key routes reiterates our confidence in Nokia’s solutions and expertise.
“Nokia’s industry-leading optical solution helps us differentiate our services based on the quality of experience,” he said.
Rob McCabe, Head of Enterprise, Australia and New Zealand at Nokia, says this is another step in a long partnership with Vocus.
“We’re delighted to have helped them build a 200G optical network of this capability over such a significant distance.
“This upgrade improves both the current and future capacity of the Adelaide, Brisbane and Darwin links to ensure Vocus can address growing data consumption demands while also delivering ultra-high speed and reliable experiences for their customers,” he said.
Vocus says the network could provide 300G and 400G services in the near future.
