Finnish telecomms solutions provider Nokia said on Tuesday (1 November) that it had entered into an agreement with Canadian telecomms services provider TELUS to use Nokia broadband infrastructure to build and support TELUS' next-generation IP broadband access network. TELUS had selected the Nokia D500 IP DSLAM (Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer) multiservice platform, equipped with ADSL2+ technology, to create multi-megabit bandwidth capacity and greater reach for the operator's services. The Nokia D500 access node is a scalable and flexible solution for operators like TELUS that want to provide mass market bandwidth-intensive services, according to Nokia. The Nokia D500 architecture can also support residential and business broadband services from either a highly dense central office or in smaller density remote outdoor sites, using Nokia's Rapid Deployment Access Cabinet (RDAC) solution. No financial information was provided.
