Vendor bytes: Infinera, Nokia, Ericsson

December 20th, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

Three interesting bits of vendor activity from three very different corners of the globe to keep up with:

Infinera has won a contract up in northern Ontario, Canada. Western James Bay Telecom Network will be using the Infinera XTM Series technology to deliver bandwidth to customers across its footprint. James Bay is a body of water jutting further south from Hudson Bay, way up in the unpopulated north of the province. WJBTN serves the communities of Fort Albany, Kashechewan, and Attawapiskat along the bay’s western shore. FONEX acted as Infinera’s local partner to facilitate the deal.

Nokia has picked up some business over in Indonesia. Varnion will be using Nokia’s Altiplano-based PON technology to upgrade its broadband infrastructure serving 300 hotel chains, tourism centers, shopping malls, and entertainment centers. Also part of the mix are 200 homes passed in the cities of Jabodetabek, Java and Bali. It’s a three-year agreement that will upgrade Varnion’s footprint from a switch-based technology to PON-based.

Ericsson has lined up a technology partnership with the Australian non-profit Agribusiness Connect. The two have signed an MOU under which they will collaborate on 5G enterprise opportunities in the agriculture sector. That includes not just out in the fields, but also the needs of processing, packaging, warehousing, and transport. The two have already been working together alongside the AgTech & Logistics Hub in Toowoomba, Queensland, where they have deployed a private 5G network in partnership with Telstra.
