Press Release 

27 September 2017

Amman, Jordan - Nokia and Orange Jordan are deploying a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network that will bring new ultra-broadband access and triple-play services to thousands of homes and businesses across Jordan besides Orange Jordan's existing ADSL (Asymmetric digital subscriber line) technology. Using a combination of Nokia's GPON (gigabit passive optical network) technology, fixed network professional services, as well as Nokia Applications and Analytics advanced network and device management software, Orange Jordan will be able to quickly deliver over 200 Mbps services needed to meet surging demand for high-speed residential and commercial services.

Today, broadband penetration in Jordan is predominantly wireless-based. Only five percent of the population accesses the internet via a fixed connection, a fraction of the six million total broadband subscribers, according to 2017 report concerning ICT in Jordan. However, as demand for e-services, e-commerce, e-health, and e-education services grows across the Kingdom, the Jordanian government is focused on enhancing its fixed access infrastructure to ensure higher speed internet access is more broadly available. As the first operator to launch a FTTH service in 2016, Orange Jordan is applying its global expertise to initiate and maintain digital transformation in the Kingdom. These ambitions are in line with the Orange Group's five-year corporate strategy, Essentials 2020, which focuses on connecting people to all that is essential to them.

Utilizing Nokia's GPON FTTH technology, Orange Jordan will be able to deliver enhanced services to new customers as well as extend the service to subscribers already served by the existing ADSL-based network. With the use of the Nokia Network Analyzer, Home Device Manager, and Home Care solutions, Orange Jordan will be able to proactively manage the GPON network and communication devices in customers' homes.

Orange Jordan CEO Jérôme Hénique, said: "We needed to quickly deploy a FTTH network that would provide the end-to-end capabilities we required to support our customers' evolving ultra-broadband needs. Nokia's credibility along with its innovations and expertise in fiber technology were strongly considered during the selection process for the current phase of technical deployment. Today, we have successfully enabled Fiber connectivity for more than 30,000 homes-and are now focused on fiberizing the rest of the network, which is expected to be up and running by the end of 2017.This is all in effort of confirming Orange Jordan's position as the strongest provider of high-speed internet and the leading provider of the most powerful telecommunications services."

Jean-Francois Pigeon, head of the Orange Customer Team for Middle East & Africa at Nokia, said: "We are pleased to continue our long-term collaboration with Orange Jordan and support its FTTH project, from infrastructure deployment to homes connected. As a leading provider of GPON technology and associated services, we have the software tools, expertise and experience to cost-effectively address the various deployment needs of Orange in Jordan, addressing its network deployment needs and Quality of Experience challenge today and in the future."
