A stable solution which is competitively priced and offers good support

Pros and Cons

  • "On several occasions we encountered major issues with the solution and have found the Nokia technical support to be quite supportive."
  • "I would prefer that all the licenses be open for our use."

What is our primary use case?

We are using 7210 Service Access Switch, also 7360 ISAM FX-4 and it's small box 7362 ISAM DF-16.

How has it helped my organization?

7210 SAS help transformed our legacy network to an MPLS based services and improved the network performance and availability.

7360 ISAM help us deliver fiber network to end user more effectively.

What is most valuable?

As I have yet to use different OLTs I find it difficult to make a comparison of the features I find most valuable.

What needs improvement?

We would like to have an unified monitoring system, while Nokia have different monitoring system for different product, we find it to be quite troublesome.

I also would prefer that all the licenses be open for our use. This would obviate the need to purchase individual licenses for each feature.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the Nokia Ethernet Service Switch product for around five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Overall, the solution is quite stable so far. I would only state that we have encountered certain issues with it, although these can likely be ascribed to high temperature in an outdoor cabinet.

How are customer service and technical support?

On several occasions we encountered major issues with the solution and have found the Nokia technical support to be quite supportive.

How was the initial setup?

Distribution involves around 200 SAS & OLT. This means that we do not put the OLT in a centralized location but distribute them near our customers.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price of the solution is very competitive in comparison with that of the competition.

What other advice do I have?

The solution is a good product from a well established brand. While I am not in a position to compare it to Huawei or ZTE, as I have not made use of these products, I do know that its price is very competitive. 

I rate Nokia Ethernet Service Switch as an eight out of ten.
