Nokia and Allo to deploy gigabit fibre network in Malaysia

Nokia’s GPON solution will enable Allo to deliver 1Gb/s service to its enterprises and residential subscribers

Nokia has been chosen by Allo, an Information and Communications Technology service provider in Malaysia, to deploy a gigabit fibre network in the states of Melaka, Johor, Negeri Sembilan and East Coast of Malaysia.

The deployment, which includes Nokia’s Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) solution and Access Management System, will be completed by end of Q2 2021 covering nearly 150,000 homepasses.

When completed, the end-users will be able to enjoy a high-speed broadband network and applications that require high capacity. The future-ready fibre network will enable Allo to increase its revenue as it will be able to support new use cases like smart cities, smart poles, edge automation, 5G backhaul, and enterprise services.

Nokia’s solution will enable Allo to better manage bandwidth in line with the requirement for different services. The fibre network will support the convergence of more services and users on the same infrastructure, allowing Allo to bring down OpEx and enhance revenue. 

With the new network, Allo will be able to acquire relevant insights into network utilization as the network grows and new technology enablers are added. Nokia’s solution will also help Allo benefit from network simplification and easier management of the network. 

Rodzi Ahmad, Chief Executive Officer at Allo, said:

“We are pleased to partner with Nokia to bring the next generation fiber services to our enterprise and residential users. By utilizing Nokia’s expertise, we will be able to accelerate the rollout of fibre services over the next two years.

This enables us to offer high-speed broadband to a greater number of people in keeping with the vision of Malaysia’s fibreisation initiative. Together Allo and Nokia will continue working towards the ultimate goal of improving broadband connectivity in Malaysia.”

Stuart Hendry, Head of Enterprise for Asia Pacific and Japan at Nokia, added:

“We are excited to work with Allo on this crucial initiative for the rollout of the next-generation fibre services. Our field-proven solutions will help Allo support the growing demand for bandwidth and provide network flexibility. Nokia’s solution will enable Allo to bring down costs and offer new and exciting services to its customers.

The initiative will help build a future-ready network capable of meeting the ever-growing data demand.”

In addition to the GPON roll-out, Allo is also conducting field trials with Nokia’s next-generation XGS-PON products which could be deployed where the network requires even greater bandwidth, up to 10Gbps symmetrical.
