How can the Nokia 1830 VWM help you meet growing bandwidth demand?

  • Reduce operational costs
    Quickly meet growing bandwidth demand while reducing OPEX. The 1830 VWM provides the energy saving characteristics of passive optical in a small footprint. And it enables simplified operations and pro-active monitoring.
  • Maximize revenue opportunities
    The 1830 VWM supports a wide range of applications and services such as Carrier Ethernet, mobile backhaul and fronthaul. It enables you to support next-generation WDM multiservice transport in metro access, metro core, data center and enterprise networks.
  • Reduce CAPEX
    The 1830 VWM product portfolio allows you to optimize your existing fiber installations, resulting in a decrease in CAPEX of up to 32% versus dark fiber.
