Proximus says backbone network upgrade on track with Nokia router

Tuesday 9 April 2019 | 12:33 CET | News
Belgian operator Proximus has started using Nokia's 7750 Service Router-14s as part of the upgrade of its IP transport network. The TITAN project started last August is expected to result in ten times more capacity on the network. The companies announced that they are on schedule with the backbone network upgrade, with 165 out of 600 buildings connected and 30 percent of 50,000 optical fibres migrated after only seven months.
