Globe also announced progress on 5G deployment

As reported by BusinessWorld, Nokia has announced its partnership with Globe Telecom to modernize the telco giant’s network infrastructure.

Globe will be using Nokia's broadband network gateway (BNG) solution to replace its existing legacy solution. This will help the telco lower network costs and allow easier deployment of fixed wireless access.

Nokia said BNG solutions use fiber-to-the-node and fiber-to-the-premises technology. These can also interwork with back-end operations support systems.

Nokia's new BNG solution introduces the capability to evolve into a flexible multi-access gateway that can combine wireline and wireless access technologies, said Globe Senior Vice-President and Head of network planning and engineering Joel Agustin.

With this new technology, Globe will be able to introduce capabilities to support fixed wireless access services, boosting its residential wireline postpaid and prepaid broadband services.

Globe also announced developments in its rollout of fifth-generation (5G) technology. So far, it has deployed 27 new 5G technology sites across the Philippines.

The company said this increased its outdoor coverage to 98.35 percent in the National Capital Region and 92.86 percent in Visayas and Mindanao in the first quarter.
