Nokia delivers DSLAM broadband technology to Telus

A partnership has been forged between two of the world’s telecommunications giants. Nokia, a company at the forefront of mobile technology, has teamed up with Telus, a major Canadian provider of broadband internet, cellular phone, and wireless data services. Telus has announced that it will utilize Nokia’s D500 IP DSLAM (Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer) multiservice platform in their next-generation IP broadband access network.

This powerful, scalable, and flexible technology will be applied in both the fixed and mobile arenas, delivering “greater bandwidth and high quality IP solutions and services to Canadians at home, in the workplace and on the move,” says Ibrahim Gedeon, Chief Technology Officer at Telus. “This new relationship forged with Nokia enables Telus to bring new broadband services to market faster.” The Nokia D500 architecture is effective not only in densely populated areas, but also more remote sites as well, making use of Nokia’s Rapid Deployment Access Cabinet (RDAC) solution.

Mikko Lavanti, Vice President at Nokia Broadband Systems, is enthusiastic about the prospects of this agreement: “With our relationship with Telus, Nokia maintains a strong position at the forefront of delivering broadband solutions, especially as network convergence continues to take shape in the telecommunications industry. Today’s announcement paves the way for Nokia to continue to lead in the IP DSLAM market taking shape on a global scale.”
