Vendor Roundup: DZS, Padtec, Nokia, Adtran

March 25th, 2024 by · Leave a Comment

Multiple technology deployments and launches to keep an eye on this week as we all wait for spring to really arrive.

DZS is working with Irby Utilities, Connect2First and the City of Cabot on a new municipal fiber project in Arkansas. Connect2First is a subsidiary of First Electric Cooperative, which presumably is providing the poles and rights-of-way and such. Irby will be providing network planning and deployment expertise, and DZS will be supplying the PON gear and supporting technology. It’s a $20M project with 220 miles of fiber planned.

Padtec has won a contract down in Brazil for its DWDM technology. NBS Telecom is looking to expand its network in the states of Rondônia, Mato Grosso, Minas Gerais, and São Paulo, as well as in the federal district. The network being lit covers some 4,000km, connecting key state capitals and markets along the way.

Nokia has lined up a new customer for 5G in the Middle East. Batelco will use Nokia’s technology to offer 5G private wireless networks in Bahrain. More specifically they will leverage Nokia’s Nokia Digital Automation Cloud (DAC), Modular Private Wireless (MPW) and Industrial devices. Deployment is scheduled for the latter half of this year, and Nokia will be the sole supplier.

And Adtran is diving deeper into the world of ZR and ZR+ optics. They have launched their new FSP 3000 M-Flex800 multi-rate line card within their overall coherent technology suite. The idea is to deliver an alternative approach to IP-over-DWDM and offers an efficient path to 800Gbps.
