Having completed the network rollout ahead of schedule, Swisscom and Nokia will now jointly manage the migration of services to the upgraded network. The new optical network will carry Swisscom’s fixed and wireless traffic from customer-provided equipment through metropolitan access to the backbone, supporting customer services from 1G to 400G and aggregating and managing traffic while maximizing the use of fiber. The solution will respond to traffic growth by eliminating repetitive tasks, accelerating service delivery and reducing ownership costs.
Network speed and management aren’t the only benefits of the new network. This new network will operate with reduced power consumption – one of the innovations in Nokia’s optical portfolio – and will contribute to Swisscom’s sustainability goals by reducing its carbon footprint.
Swisscom selected Nokia’s portfolio of optical networking hardware, software and professional services for the entire transformation, including the 1830 Nokia Photonic Service Engine (PSE)-V family of digital division multiplexing platforms. wavelength/optical transport network (WDM/OTN) and the WaveSuite portfolio. networking applications.
“The transformation of Swisscom’s optical network is essential for our future digitalization,” says Christoph Aeschlimann, CEO of Swisscom. “Through the partnership with Nokia, we have a network that can quickly adapt to changes and provide superior service to our customers while contributing to our sustainability goals.”
