Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited has deployed Nokia’s technology to expand the capacity of recently installed 100G transport network to 200G optical network for both domestic and international traffic. This capacity expansion has been carried out in the major cities of Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi to keep pace with the growing demands of capacity created by ever-increasing consumption of broadband by individuals as well as enterprises. With this, PTCL becomes the first operator in Pakistan to deploy high-performance 200G 8 Quadrature Amplitude Modulation in the country, an optical long-haul technology offering more capacity at lower cost.

The upgradation of its optical network allows PTCL to proactively address the growing demands of bandwidth, enabling its enterprise and individual users in Pakistan’s largest cities to use high-bandwidth services and applications such as HD and 4K video. In addition, the network upgradation allows PTCL to flexibly enhance network capacity with the Software Defined Network capabilities of the Nokia optical solution. Further, the unique flexgrid technology allows PTCL to easily upgrade to 300G or 400G in the future over the same installed base.
