Spectra (formerly Spectranet) recently launched 1Gbps broadband unlimited broadband plans in Bengaluru at Rs. 1249, after Delhi NCR. Today the company has announced that it has selected Nokia’s IP/MPLS routing and GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) fiber solutions to build out its network to meet customer demand for high-performance broadband services.
Spectra also continues to lead the Netflix ISP SpeedIndex for India over other providers. Spectra is looking looking to expand broadband services to key metro markets in India.
Nokia said that its IP/MPLS solution will provide an IP aggregation, Edge and core network based on the 7210 Service Access Switch (SAS) and 7750 Service Router (SR) for the network roll-out in Bangalore. The Nokia Network Services Platform (NSP) will handle end-to-end service provisioning and network assurance that will ensure high quality while lowering operational costs for Spectra.
Nokia also is also providing its 7360 ISAM FX GPON solution to provide faster broadband speeds to customers and create the network foundation essential for future ultra-broadband services. “The enhanced fiber network will allow Spectra to address the emerging ultra-broadband needs of its customers and deliver best-in-class service,” said Nokia.
Commenting on the partnership, Udit Mehrotra, CEO and Managing Director, Spectra said:
We are pleased to partner with Nokia to strengthen our network of high bandwidth broadband services for business and home customers. We are working hard to ensure our offerings and expertise in ultra-high speed broadband access and transport continue to improve the quality of internet consumption in India and support the country’s future digital innovations.
Vinish Bawa, head of Customer Team, Emerging Business for Nokia India, said:
Spectra’s choice of the Nokia routing and broadband access solution is the beginning of a great partnership. We plan to work closely with our customer to help them provide a level of service assurance and manageability that will make their offer affordable while taking bandwidth to a whole new level for their subscribers.
