Under this contract, China Mobile will deploy home gateway units with Nokia’s solution to over 30 million users during 2017. Using established fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks, which bring greater service experiences and gigabit speeds to customers, the new gateway will extend internet coverage in the home and enable IoT communications between devices and sensors. The ability to flexibly add software functions and enhanced analytics capabilities allows China Mobile to deploy and deliver a new intelligent home experience and associated services.
This contract extends a long-term fixed networks partnership between China Mobile and Nokia which also included the development of its GPON network for mobile backhaul.
