Indian ISP Netplus Broadband has tapped Nokia for its Multi-Access Gateway Broadband Network Gateway (BNG) application.
The application, hosted on the FP5-based 7750 SR, and the 7250 IXR, offers access management with high-density aggregation, and will allow Netplus to scale its broadband services throughout Northern India. The ISP operates across over 400 cities and towns in several states across the region.
The 7750 SR is based on Nokia’s industry leading FP5 silicon, which helps enable world-class broadband services with highly scalable subscriber management, granular bandwidth management and per-subscriber policy control, as well as deterministic performance and a 75% reduction in power consumption over FP4 silicon.
In addition, Netplus will also deploy Nokia’s 7750 SR Extended Services Appliance (ESA) to scale support of Carrier Grade Network Address Translation (CGNAT), helping it solve the challenges faced by increasing demand for connected endpoints.
Netplus will partner with Nokia’s IP Networks services team to support the deployment of the Nokia products and applications to deliver the new, quad-play residential broadband services to its subscriber base of one million plus across the state of Punjab.
Arshdeep Singh Mundi, Executive Director at Netplus, said: “Our partnership with Nokia will help us achieve our goals of a world-class broadband experience for our customers and last-mile broadband expansion with the benefit of added capacity. The expanded coverage will leverage Nokia’s state of the art broadband access infrastructure and help Netplus cater to our customers’ increasing demand, helping drive the Digital India vision.”
Vach Kompella, Vice President, IP Networks Division at Nokia, said: “Our Multi-Access Gateway BNG, hosted on our 7750 SR platform, and 7250 IXR offers a scalable and high-capacity infrastructure to enable ISPs like Netplus to build a foundation for rapid broadband access growth across India.”
