[Shenzhen, China, June 10, 2019] Huawei and TIME dotCom (TIME) jointly signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on the construction of a pilot 10 Gigabit Passive Optical Network (10G PON), aiming to provide gigabit ultra-broadband for fixed access users in Malaysia.
The demand for network bandwidth will continue increasing with new services such as Virtual Reality (VR)/Augmented Reality (AR), cloud computing, and full-fibre campuses emerging. In anticipation of future developments and requirements, Huawei entered into a MoU with TIME to pilot a 10G PON network to test potential network capabilities.
Huawei has industry-leading end-to-end 10G PON solutions. The Flex-PON solution at the Optical Line Terminal Central Office (OLT CO) side supports multiple modes, such as GPON and 10G PON. It supports a smooth upgrade from GPON to 10G PON without Optical Distribution Network (ODN) reconstruction, thereby protecting customers' investment. The unique Class D high-power symmetric 10G PON/GPON Combo optical module has an optical power budget 25% higher than industry average, increasing the coverage distance by 17 km to connect more users. In addition, based on the proprietary distributed edge computing architecture, Telemetry fast data collection technology, hardware data collection chip, and industry-leading artificial intelligence algorithms (PON optical path characteristic algorithm, Wi-Fi channel optimization algorithm, and optical path failure prediction algorithm), Huawei has launched the industry's first network cloud engine (NCE) and developed multiple methods to help TIME build future-oriented network Operations & Maintenance (O&M) capabilities. These methods include premium broadband intelligent O&M, intelligent ODN fault diagnosis, proactive rectification of weak light faults, proactive capacity expansion based on network bandwidth bottleneck prediction, and identification of users with poor quality of experience.
"Network infrastructure is constantly evolving and we are excited at the prospects that 10G PON would have. An upgrade to a higher capacity network infrastructure is critical to supporting the future bandwidth requirements of our customers," said Ang Thing Jiun, Chief Technology Officer of TIME.
As a world-leading ultra-broadband solutions provider, Huawei continues to lead the development of the global ultra-broadband industry. Huawei's 10G PON solution has been put into commercial use by more than 30 operators worldwide. In addition to fulfilling Nielsen's Law of Internet Bandwidth, Huawei's 10G PON solutions introduce automation and AI technologies to help operators build ultra-wide, simplified, smart, and open full-fiber access networks to enable a smart world of ubiquitous connections.
