Huawei Technologies releases new FTTD solution
Feb 18, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., an information and communications technology solutions provider, has released the new fiber to the door, or FTTD, solution.
This solution provides ultra-broadband as fast as 100 Mbit/s to 1000 Mbit/s by reusing the existing twisted pairs or coaxial cables through an innovation of line technologies, project implementation technologies, service provisioning and OAM technologies, the company said.
The solution overcomes the difficulties of the traditional fiber to the home (FTTH) or fiber to the building (FTTB) scenarios, such as drop fiber installation, slow deployment, large investments, and provides operators with broadband access.
The FTTD solution inherits the advantages of the FTTH and FTTB solutions to meet the challenges of ultra-broadband and drop fiber installation. The access equipment is deployed at an outdoor position nearest to the user, such as in the corridor or the telecom riser. The existing twisted pairs, coaxial cables, and Ethernet network cables are reused to resolve the drop fiber installation issue. In addition, VDSL2, Vectoring, and Giga DSL technologies are used to provide ultra-broadband as fast as 100 Mbit/s to 1000 Mbit/s the company added.
The FTTD solution uses new methods such as reverse power supply, free grounding, and free configuration to support the plug-and-play feature and remove the need to perform configurations on site. For service provisioning and OAM, the FTTH OSS system is reused and equipment matching becomes easy. As a new component of Huawei's SingleFAN FTTx solution, the FTTD solution has been tested on the live networks of many operators worldwide with high satisfaction levels, and is to be put into trial commercial use in Europe and the Middle East, the company concluded.
"Huawei is dedicated to continuous customer-centric innovation. We believe that the FTTD solution can help our customers resolve difficulties in deploying FTTH networks. Relying on the advantages of the FTTD solution such as ultra-broadband access through any medium, simple deployment, and remote management, operators can stay ahead of the fierce market competition and achieve business success," said You Yiyong, president, access network product line at Huawei.
