Greenlight says the deployment of Nokia’s XGS-PON solution reflects its commitment to continually develop the capabilities and speed of its network and is an important step towards extending new ultra-broadband services such as streaming video in 8k and 12k as well as keeping up with the increase of internet-aware devices in the home. It also provides a cost-effective upgrade path for its existing fibre network, which covers multiple municipalities in the Greater Rochester area, allowing Greenlight to seamlessly move from GPON (2.5Gbps) to XGS-PON (10Gbps) using the same access node.

Mark Murphy, CEO at Greenlight Networks says “Greenlight is constantly looking at ways we can deliver new services that fit every customer need.  We pride ourselves on offering the fastest internet speeds available in the markets we serve and Nokia’s XGS-PON technology will play a critical part in our ability to deliver these services to our customers.  With Nokia’s next-generation PON fibre solution we will be able to deliver the latest technologies, applications, products and services quickly and reliably to our customers and ensure they have access to the ultra-broadband speeds and capacity they require now and in the future.”

Greenlight Networks is an ultra-high-speed, broadband service provider, offering residential and small business customers Internet speeds up to a Gigabit per second. Based in Rochester, NY and founded in 2011, the company builds, owns and operates its own fibre-optic networks.
