The Thanksgiving break is upon us here in the US, but here are a few interesting items from around the world first:
Vodafone has partnered up with the WWF. No, not the wrestling one, the wildlife one. The two will work together to reduce Vodafone’s carbon emissions via a new program to encourage traded-in, refurbished, repaired, and recycled smartphones. Apparently using a refurbished smartphone saves 50kg of CO2 equivalents and the extraction of 76.9kg of raw materials.
Nokia and KPN have been working on next generation PON technology. They have demonstrated 20Gbps broadband speeds in a field trial with the Caresse animal hospital in the Netherlands city of Rotterdam. Nokia’s 25G PON tech works alongside GPON and XGS-PON overthe same fiber and access nodes. Veterinary hospitals’ need for bandwidth parallels that of regular hospitals, with the need to transfer large images and other data sets on a regular basis.
Meanwhile, Nokia has also been working with Balitower on the other side of the planet. Balitower will be using a range of Nokia’s mobile transport technology to modernize the company’s IP network. As you might expect, it’s all about the rollout of 5G. Balitower has a three-year nationwide project for its infrastructure across Indonesia.
And Ericsson has picked up some business closer to home. The Finland-based provider Elisa is leveraging Ericsson’s technology to roll out 5G Standalone across Estonia in the spring of 2023. The upgrade involves an expansion of Elisa’s core network solutions, and will power high-end nextgen use cases for Elisa’s Estonian customers.
