Nokia and WorldLink to build Nepal’s first 100G optical network

Nokia has struck a great deal with Nepal’s operator WorldLink where it will be upgrading the 650 km optical network with its networking equipment. Nokia will be installing the Nokia’s 1830 PSS (Photonic Service Switch) DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) technology to support bandwidth-hungry entertainment and enterprise services across the country. This will help all the people in Nepal and visitors to better use all the perks of high speed internet, like HD video, 4K video and Internet TV.
