Nokia to provide Telenor with optical backbone in Norway and Sweden

Telenor has chosen Nokia as its sole supplier for the replacement of its legacy optical backbone network

The new optical core network will provide much-needed bandwidth capacity in Norway and Sweden. Driving the need for the new multi-terabit capacity are the coming evolution to 5G mobile, growing consumer demand for online video and internet usage, and the increasing use of cloud applications and the associated need for data centre interconnections. The next-generation optical network will feature Nokia's state-of-the-art coherent optical transmission technology. Built on Nokia's industry leading solutions with advanced wavelength routing (CDC-F), it allows for greater flexibility and dynamic network management and automation.
