Cambodia's largest enterprise-focused ISP SINET has selected Nokia to support its expansion into the residential market with FTTH services.
Under the agreement, Nokia will roll out a nationwide access network starting in major housing apartments and gated communities – known as borey - in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.
SINET plans to deliver broadband services targeted at residents living in newly built gated areas and apartment buildings using Nokia's Gigabit capable GPON Mini optical line terminal solution.
SINET CEO Meta Sy said the company plans to use the high speeds and qualities available with GPON technologies to stand out from the crowd and gain a competitive foothold in the residential market.
“The Cambodia market is crowded with low-quality residential broadband services available at low prices using many off-the-shelf access equipment with little consideration to long term quality and reliability,” he said.
“When we decided to deploy GPON in borey and housing apartments, we wanted a quality-based and future-proof offering that would set us apart from the competitions. That means the service has to be on-par with international broadband standard in terms of speed, reliability, efficiency and ease of troubleshooting which are key criteria why we selected Nokia."
