Netia, one of the largest regional telecommunication operators in Poland, will deploy Nokia's Unified Cable Access solution to significantly increase the network capacity needed to support surging bandwidth demands.

Initially targeting the cities of Warsaw and Krakow, the deployment will create Europe's first fully virtualized Distributed Access Architecture (vDAA) cable network and enable Netia to deliver enhanced ultra-broadband services to residential and business customers and quickly expand its network into new service areas.

Nokia's Unified Cable Access solution is based on a virtualized Distributed Access Architecture (vDAA) which delivers greater space and power savings, as well as superior architectural flexibility, compared to traditional DAAs. Nokia's Unified Cable Access solution will enable Netia to establish a fully distributed and virtualized access architecture that can support new, competitive Gigabit and IPTV services over great distances. By moving the cable access layer functions in its headend and hub sites to the access nodes that sit closer to customers, Netia can eliminate some of its legacy cable-specific hardware and significantly extend its reach into new communities. It also can increase the performance needed to ensure a better internet experience for subscribers. 

Netia will begin deploying Nokia's Unified Cable Access solution, including the Gainspeed Access Controller and Gainspeed Access Nodes, into its network in Q4 2018. Once fully deployed, Netia will be able to effectively replace analog optical transmission with 10Gbps Ethernet, establishing an all-IP architecture capable of backhauling and transmitting digitized video over long distances. This will help reduce the space and power costs in the hub while significantly increasing the network's capacity, reach and signal quality, thus improving ultra-broadband services for its customers.

Andrzej Abramczuk, Presiden of the Board, General Director, Netia
With Nokia's Unified Cable Access solution, we can more easily deploy and deliver new services that ensure our customers receive the best TV experience and fastest Internet speeds in Poland.

Federico Guillen, President of Nokia Fixed Networks
With Nokia's vDAA solution, Netia will be able to quickly enhance their network to deliver the additional capacity and reach they need to meet rising customer demand for ultra-broadband services.
