Netplus, the broadband arm of Fastway Medi and a leading Multi-System Operator (MSO) in India will deploy Nokia's GPON technology to meet growing demand for more capacity, faster speeds and superior quality of broadband services.

Nokia's GPON technology will be rolled out across the country with initial deployments starting in the states of Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. The upgraded network will allow Netplus subscribers to enjoy new ultra-broadband such as IPTV and quad-play services.

Nokia said its solution allows easy integration with the existing network enabling Netplus to expand and grow their network without changing the gear. The solution, based on Nokia's mini-OLT and ISAM DF products, facilitates flexible deployments deep in the network, eliminating the need for a central office while driving cost efficiencies.

Prem Ojha, CEO, Fastway Group
We have been the front-runners in delivering high speed broadband services across 135 cities in 6 states, and we intend to give our users seamless experience who can now enjoy high speed uninterrupted premium video content with high definition video streaming, mobile gaming and much more. 

Vinish Bawa, Head of Emerging Business, Nokia
And with this project we are now engaged with all the top MSOs in the country. This gives us a deep understanding of their unique requirements, which is reflected in the innovative products and insights we provide to help them in this transformation.
