Proximus to deploy 100 Gbps backbone

Monday 27 August 2018 | 13:20 CET | News
Belgian operator Proximus said it intends to up the capacity of its transport network by a factor of 10. The operator expects traffic to jump 14-fold over the next decade, pushed by video and audio streaming plus cloud services, as well as the continued growth in the number of connected devices and demand for higher speeds. The Proximus Titan transport network will be equipped by 2021 with 10G and 100G routers from Nokia.
