Huawei releases FTTD solution

Increases broadband speeds from 100Mbit/s to 1Gbit/s

ICT vendor, Huawei, has announced its fibre to the door (FTTD) solution, increasing broadband speeds from 100Mbit/s to 1Gbit/s.

According to Huawei, this is the industry’s first in launching such a solution. High speeds are attained as the solution combines fibre with existing copper and coaxial cables, overcoming the cost and deployment difficulties of connecting fibre all the way into a user’s premises.

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 fibre installation issue.

In addition, VDSL2, Vectoring, and Giga DSL technologies are used to provide ultra-broadband speeds.

Huawei said, in a statement, that ultra-broadband access is becoming more popular in the development of broadband networks, due to the increase of high-definition videos and Cloud services.

"We believe that the FTTD solution can help our customers resolve difficulties in deploying FTTH networks,” Huawei access network product line president, You Yiyong, said.

“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."

The technology has been trialed on existing Huawei fibre networks around the globe, and will soon go into a commercial trial in Europe and the Middle East.

Is this the same company that was banned from competeing in the NBN tender after it was found to contain electronics that could potentially report back to mother China?
Also, with Fibre, copper and ethernet all running from the Huawei cabinet at the street how much more is it going to cost when NBN Co can do the same thing with just a single fibre.
