Orange Jordan and Nokia deploy fibre-to-the-home network

Sep 27,2017 - Last updated at Sep 27,2017

Nokia and Orange Jordan are deploying a fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network that will bring new ultra-broadband access and triple-play services to homes and businesses across Jordan.

Using a combination of Nokia’s GPON (gigabit passive optical network) technology, fixed network professional services, as well as Nokia Applications & Analytics advanced network and device management software, Orange Jordan will deliver over 200 Mbps services needed to meet surging demand for high-speed residential and commercial services.

At present, broadband penetration in Jordan is predominantly wireless-based. Only 5 per cent of the population accesses the internet via a fixed connection, a fraction of the 6 million total broadband subscribers, according to 2017 report concerning ICT in Jordan.

However, as demand for e-services is increasing, the Jordanian government has focused on enhancing its fixed access infrastructure to ensure higher speed Internet access.
