WorldLink, the largest operator in Nepal, and Nokia will deploy the country’s largest FTTH network connecting more than 1 million homes by 2019.

Nokia’s fiber access solutions including its 7360 ISAM FX platform will provide the technology and network backbone needed to support bandwidth-hungry entertainment and enterprise services across the country.

WorldLink has 160,000 residential broadband subscribers and 5,000 enterprise broadband circuits, and is adding 12,000 residential subscribers to its fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) service every month, requiring the operator to meet surging demand for network capacity. Using Nokia’s leading fiber platform, WorldLink will be able to evolve and scale its network in line with residential demands in a cost-efficient way. 

Once deployed, the new FTTH network will provide existing WorldLink subscribers with the option to upgrade their current bandwidth up to 100Mbps and experience ultra-broadband and HD IPTV services. 

Expanding beyond the metropolitan area of Kathmandu, the new fiber network will also enable WorldLink to more effectively address underserved areas across Nepal and further increase broadband penetration.
