Japan's EneCom (Energia Communication) in partnership with Nokia is planning for G.fast commercial deployment in Chugoku area in June this year. The community based ICT provider will be deploying Nokia's 7367 Intelligent Service Access Manager (ISAM) SX-16 node along with 7368 ISAM CPE F-010G-P customer premises equipment(CPE) to provide G.fast service over standard copper lines. The service which boast speeds of up to 1Gbps will be an alternative to fiber-to-the-home (FTTH). 

Building off a successful G.fast trial in 2015, the new G.fast deployment will allow EneCom to meet the growing demand for next generation ultra-broadband access and more effectively deliver the high-capacity, high-quality internet and video services customers need for ultra-high bandwidth TVs, streaming HD video and Internet-connected devices. The technology will help EneCom quickly deploy ultra-broadband access into areas that otherwise would be difficult to reach with fiber alone, such as multi-dwelling units. 

Naoki Okura, head of Global Enterprise & Public Sector in Japan for Nokia
With solutions like Nokia’s G.fast residential gateways and distribution point units (DPUs), we are able to help Energia Communications quickly and easily deliver on the promise of fiber network speeds and meet the growing demands of broadband in Japan’s highly competitive market.
