Nokia’s Wireless PON (Passive Optical Network) solution is an industry first that allows operators to bring gigabit services to customers using WiGig wireless technology, eliminating the need to bring fiber all the way to a home or building.

The Access Point can be easily mounted to telephone poles, street lights or a building facade. Beamforming is used to bring connections of up to 1Gbps to WPON Wall Portal units located up to 300 meters away. Operators can bring fiber to a street corner or neighborhood, and then use multiple Access Points in a row to connect homes and businesses.
