Spectra has selected Nokia’s IP/MPLS routing and GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) fiber solutions to build out its network to meet customer demand for high-performance broadband services. Spectra will be the first ISP in Bangalore to offer 1 Gbps services with unlimited bandwidth at a competitive price for both residential and enterprise customers.
Spectra is one of the fastest growing Indian ISPs and its aggressive broadband offer is changing the competitive landscape in Bangalore. Its customers, many of whom are demanding more bandwidth, are being offered a ‘step jump’ in bandwidth, service quality and reach, at very competitive price points This has significantly changed how broadband is consumed in the region, contributing to the Indian government’s goal of making India one of the top ten countries worldwide for broadband. A testament to this is the fact that Spectra continues to lead the Netflix ISP SpeedIndex for India over other legacy providers.
Spectra is aiming to provide broadband networks to key metro markets in India to meet data-driven demand for services like video streaming. The Nokia IP/MPLS solution will provide an IP aggregation, Edge and core network based on the 7210 Service Access Switch (SAS) and 7750 Service Router (SR) for the network roll-out in Bangalore.

Nokia also is also providing its 7360 ISAM FX GPON solution to provide faster broadband speeds to customers and create the network foundation essential for future ultra-broadband services. The enhanced fiber network will allow Spectra to address the emerging ultra-broadband needs of its customers and deliver best-in-class services.
