UAE telco du has successfully tested Nokia's Time and Wavelength Division Multiplexing Passive Optical Network (TWDM-PON) fibre technology in its lab, supposedly reaching aggregate speeds of 40 Gbps.

This can help du to upgrade its existing GPON network to the next-generation with XGS-PON or TWDM-PON on a single fibre. Currently offering 1 Gbps services in the UAE, du continues to innovate.

Jasim AlAwadi, vice president - network infrastructure and services, at du, said: "With the increased use of smart devices and bandwidth-hungry applications by our subscribers, the demand for an ultra-fast network also keeps increasing. Keeping our customers on the top of our mind, we pioneer by introducing market-leading technologies to them. Our successful test of Nokia's TWDM-PON is proof of this. We are confident that our cooperation will take the country's journey toward IoT and smart cities to the next level."

Rima Manna, head of the du customer team at Nokia, said: "With its current strategy, du is very well positioned to evolve its network now and in the long term, and meet the customer needs of one of the leading broadband countries in the world. With this latest successful test, we reiterate our commitment to du in its endeavor to launch truly innovative services for its subscribers across the country."
