Nokia announced that ONI Telecom of Portugal will deploy the Nokia 1830 Photonic Service Demarcation (PSD) to provide cost-effective 10G dedicated links to customers in key Portuguese cities.
The Nokia solution extends the optical network through to the customer premises, giving ONI the end-to-end visibility required to meet service level agreements (SLAs) for its retail enterprise and wholesale datacenter interconnect and cloud service offerings.
With the increasing demand for cloud services by Portuguese enterprise customers, the need for dedicated high-speed, low-latency access and datacenter interconnect (DCI) is growing. Given the mission-critical nature of these wavelength and Ethernet services, it is all-important for ONI to provide SLAs up to the customer premises (also called the demarcation point).
Based on a new MEF 3.0 standard, the Nokia 1830 PSD provides both Wavelength and Ethernet services in a low-power, small-footprint device. It will enable ONI to manage and monitor its entire transport network, end-to-end.
