Wales’s fastest growing broadband company, and one of the “21 great Welsh firms to watch in 2021”, has selected Nokia as a key technology partner as they look to bring full fibre connectivity to over 150,000 homes in south Wales.

The partnership with allow Ogi to continue their mission of powering up life online for homes, businesses and communities in South Wales, by using the best equipment:

  • The Nokia ISAM 7360 OLT has been chosen and will be fitted inside the Ogi street cabinets to light the fibre optic cables that will feed broadband and telephone services into homes and businesses.
  • The Nokia G-120G-E ONT will be the small box fitted in the home whilst the more powerful Nokia XS-010X-Q ONT will be used for business customers.

The first three “active cabinets” containing the Nokia equipment will go live during August starting in Haverfordwest in Pembrokeshire on the 16th of August closely followed by Rhoose in the Vale of Glamorgan and Abergavenny in Monmouthshire.

Justin Leese, Chief Technology and Operations Officer for Ogi said “I’m delighted to be working with Nokia as we roll out our network across South Wales. Their products offer great price/performance and scalability for our network as Ogi grows over the coming years, and customer demand for bandwidth increases. We’ve also had great support from their Services team who have been moving at pace with us as we build and test the network.”

Nokia will enable the future scalability for Ogi networks, meaning that customers will receive a future-proofed connection. The support Nokia plans to offer Ogi and their customers will allow Ogi to continue connecting customers to a real fibre network, allowing for an ultrafast, ultra-reliable real fibre broadband connection for homes and businesses across south Wales.

Phil Siveter, CEO UK & Ireland, at Nokia said, “Broadband connectivity is a necessity today, like water or electricity, and crucial to economic growth. Nokia is playing a leading role in providing broadband access to households and businesses across the UK. We are proud to be supporting Ogi in South Wales with our gigabit broadband solution and services.”
