Nokia expands network-in-a-box programme for BEAD
Nokia headquarters in Espoo, Finland
Nokia is extending its “network-in-a-box” programme to help provide essential network infrastructure products in a single bundle that operators and BEAD participants need to quickly build or scale broadband networks.
The pre-packaged solutions are configurable to each individual network build and are available to ship directly through Nokia or its network of channel partners. The programme provides all of the recently announced U.S. manufactured fibre-optic broadband network electronics products and optical modules in a single solution.
The network-in-a-box program includes Nokia’s IP routing, Fiber OLT, Fiber ONT, and Wi-Fi beacon products along with software and services designed to make it easier for operators of all sizes to build their fibre broadband networks. Network-in-a box-makes it easy to build small greenfield fibre networks or cap existing GPON networks and grow to XGS and 25G-PON.
Sandy Motley, President, Fixed Networks at Nokia, says: “We’re excited to help operators and network builders get access to the tools they need to simplify and accelerate broadband rollouts to help make high-speed broadband access a reality for all.”
