UAE-based telecommunications service provider du has successfully tested Nokia's Time and Wavelength Division Multiplexing Passive Optical Network (TWDM-PON) fiber technology in its lab, reaching aggregate speeds of 40 Gbps.

Nokia said that its TWDM-PON technology expands the capacity of du's fiber access network by providing additional wavelengths over a fiber which collectively deliver up to 40 Gbs. This enables significantly higher upload and download speeds. 

With the technology, du can efficiently upgrade its existing GPON network to the next-generation with XGS-PON or TWDM-PON on a single fiber.

Currently offering 1 Gbps services in the UAE, du continues to innovate and invest in technologies that will offer its business and residential customers the speed and quality of service they expect. The rise in bandwidth will help du improve the customer experience significantly for residential customers and launch new services for the highly demanding business customers.

du is the strategic partner of Smart Dubai for Smart Dubai Platform. The Smart Dubai Platform will be developed and implemented by du, in an ambitious and unique public-private partnership model that will set new benchmarks for cross-sector partnerships for smart city initiatives globally.

Jasim AlAwadi, Vice President - Network Infrastructure & Services, at du
With the increased use of smart devices and bandwidth-hungry applications by our subscribers, the demand for an ultra-fast network also keeps increasing. Keeping our customers on the top of our mind, we pioneer by introducing market-leading technologies to them. Our successful test of Nokia's TWDM-PON is proof of this.

Rima Manna, head of the du customer team at Nokia
With its current strategy, du is very well positioned to evolve its network now and in the long term, and meet the customer needs of one of the leading broadband countries in the world. With this latest successful test, we reiterate our commitment to du in its endeavor to launch truly innovative services for its subscribers across the country.
