SINET, Cambodia’s leading internet service provider, has chosen Nokia to provide faster speed per user as well as cut down 50% of operating costs.
With Nokia’s high-speed broadband services that are the Nokia Gigabit-capable Passive Optical Network (GPON) and Mini Optical Line Terminal (OLT), SINET’s customers will be able to use high-speed and high-quality internet access to serve the future smart-home services including video streaming and home-security systems.
According to Nokia’s press release on 19 March 2019, SINET’s new service provided by Nokia will be operated “in major residential and gated communities, locally known as borey and housing apartments in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.”
Meta Sy, CEO of SINET shared that the broadband servives in Cambodia market were in low-quality because it used “many off-the-shelf access equipment” but did not consider the “long term quality and reliability” of the services.
Therefore, SINET decided to choose Nokia to provide high-standard internet for the customers in borey and housing apartments.
“We wanted a quality-based and future-proof offering that would set us apart from the competitions. That means the service has to be on-par with international broadband standard in terms of speed, reliability, efficiency and ease of troubleshooting which are key criteria why we selected Nokia.” he said.
Sebastien Laurent, head of Thailand and Cambodia at Nokia also emphasized the solutions that Nokia will offer to SINET. For instance, Mini OLT service will deliver high-speed broadband internet to low-density residential areas as well as helps save space and operational expenditure.
“With Nokia GPON technology, the country’s first such deployment will address the growing customer demand for affordable ultra-broadband services at home.” Sebastien shared.
