Nokia and Orange Jordan launch mesh Wi-Fi

Orange Jordan and Nokia have signed a deal in 2017 to deploy GPON fibre throughout the kingdom.

Orange Jordan has signed a three-year agreement with Nokia to deploy more than 100,000 units of Nokia Wi-Fi Beacons across the country.

Nokia’s solution, including fibre modems and Wi-Fi beacons, will allow Orange Jordan to provide consistent Wi-Fi coverage even at the farthest places inside the premises. It is available for both new and existing subscribers of Orange Jordan.

Orange Jordan’s subscribers will be able to install and manage their Wi-Fi network through the Nokia WiFi mobile app.

The Nokia Wi-Fi Beacons come with in-built intelligence, enabling them to resolve problems like interference and connectivity issues.

Mohamed Salama, Head of Fixed Networks, MEA, Nokia, said: “Our latest Wi-Fi solution offers seamless reach into the farthermost parts of a building. Our beacons are easy to install and manage and will help our customer provide better network performance which will lead to increased usage and more revenue.”
