  • Metrotel uses Nokia’s Altiplano cloud platform and Cloud Acceleration Professional Services to build a state-of-the-art shared fiber infrastructure, based on passive optical network (PON) technology
  • The deployment helps meet Argentina’s broadband needs by providing cost-effective, high-speed fiber optic connectivity and related services to more than 40,000 users
  • Metrotel will initially focus on enterprise customers, using the new network’s slicing capability to optimize services by market segment

3 December 2020

Espoo, Finland - Nokia today announced it will deploy the Altiplano cloud platform for fiber access in Metrotel’s network. This deployment enables Metrotel to deliver high-speed broadband and related services to users across Argentina. Metrotel has already built 4000 km of fiber networks, spanning Greater Buenos Aires, Rosario, Córdoba, Mendoza and Neuquén. By deploying Nokia Lightspan fiber access nodes, Metrotel will be able to provide cheaper and faster connectivity to 40,000 customers across these regions.

Metrotel will use the solution to support corporate customers in sectors including financial services, media, hospitality and government, whose needs call for a cost-effective and fully serviced fiber optic network. Flexible control and easy integration allow Metrotel to tailor its offering to individual market segments. Nokia’s high-capacity Lightspan FX access nodes provide the required scale.

Metrotel aims to become a broadband wholesaler, providing high-speed connectivity and comprehensive support services to virtual network operators who serve the residential market. The network will also support 5G mobile backhaul services, helping to accelerate rollout of 5G capabilities across Argentina.

To build the new network infrastructure, Metrotel selected Nokia’s cloud-native Altiplano platform for the flexibility it offers - it can easily be integrated with existing IT and operations support systems. The intent-based Altiplano Access Controller will enable Metrotel to vastly improve its network customization and management, through open programmable interfaces and closed-loop automated operations. Nokia Cloud Acceleration Professional Services provide system integration services to integrate Altiplano cloud platform in Metrotel cloud infrastructure. Altiplano customization services provide customer specific intents to support Metrotel’s requirements for their business customers.
