Press release:

 

 

Chorus and Nokia have announced the successful demonstration of 25 gigabit per second fibre (Gbps) broadband technology at the Chorus Fibre Lab in Auckland. 

 

The demonstration at Chorus' Fibre Lab achieved an 21.4 Gbps download speed. This test was on the same fibre strand that also showed over 930 Mbps over GPON and 8,000 Mbps over XGS-PON, a technology marketed as 'Hyperfibre' in New Zealand.

 

With the enhanced capacities of 25-gigabit passive optical networking (25G PON), Chorus will be able to offer higher speed data services to wholesale broadband providers and, in turn, to residential and business customers.

 

While not yet commercially available large businesses are expected to see great benefit from the increased speeds and capacity for their growing low latency cloud connectivity, IoT and industrial metaverse applications. As data usage continues to increase, high quality broadband is becoming increasingly mission critical for both consumers and businesses.

 

Chorus' Chief Technology Officer, Ewen Powell, said, "When we started our ultra-fast broadband journey, we knew GPON was a future-proofed technology. In 2020, we proved that with the launch of Hyperfibre using Nokia's XGS-PON, which offers Kiwi businesses and high-end residential users symmetrical speeds up to 8 Gbps. Today, we're delighted to be partnering with Nokia to show the next step on the journey.

 

"For Chorus, what's truly outstanding about 25G PON is the ease with which it will integrate with our existing fibre infrastructure, enabling service providers to upgrade their customers on demand. It will play an important role in supporting New Zealand’s future connectivity fabric."

 

Based on the energy efficient Quillion chipset and available for the widely deployed Nokia fibre platform, Nokia's 25G PON solution can be quickly and easily introduced to existing networks.

 

Stefaan Vanhastel, CTO of Fixed Networks at Nokia said, "As the first operator to launch symmetric 8 Gbps, Chorus pioneered super-fast services with their Hyperfibre package. In this demonstration Chorus has shown both how easy it is to activate 25G PON and the scale and capacity it provides to support ever increasing data demands.”

Imagine the dosh one would have to fork out to upgrade their gear to take advantage of the speed and I fail to see what application 25Gbps fibre would use in residential scenario

Wait for the classic "Why is my 2016 TV only getting 54 Mbps when I connect to my router? I am paying for the 25 Gbps service to stream faster."

Meh... I played 4 player multiplayer doom across daisylinked serial connections. :-) The 2 middle machines were 486s (a DX2/66 and an SX25) and the 2 outside machines were 386s... I think the outside serial connections were 19200 and the middle was a whopping 115200!! There was software to emulate IPX/SPX across these serial links and Viola! 4 player Doom!

 

Honestly, I think we tried make this work for a couple of weeks and we had a solid 20 minutes of 4 player action at one point.

 

The point is, I'm not yet 100% convinced 25Gbps is needed for online gaming :-)

ps. Ergh... Just realised this was 27-28 years ago...
