Huawei Releases FastReach Solution Helping Operators Improve Broadband ROI Rate
[Xi'an, China, July 20, 2017] At the ninth Huawei User Group Meeting, Huawei released the FastReach solution, enabling operators to build valuable broadband networks and improve return on investment (ROI). This solution supports two core capabilities: fast network construction and fast operation.
It effectively helps operators build networks rapidly and reduce site deployment costs by up to 70%. Additionally, operators can establish operation environments quickly, greatly increasing the installation rates of home broadband users and shortening the ROI period. Fast network construction greatly increases fiber to the x (FTTx) efficiency through innovative engineering, infrastructure synergy, and innovative O&M tools.
Fast network construction includes:
- Implementing deployment synergy for broadband networks and power facilities, realizing fast fiber routing.
- Deploying mini OLTs and wireless base stations in the same cabinet or site, enabling operators to reuse most infrastructure resources on live networks.
- Performing acceptance through smartphone apps (without meters), achieving intelligent, automatic, and fast acceptance for optical distribution networks (ODNs) and further improving network construction and deployment efficiency.
Fast operation supports three core components: mini operations support system (OSS), number provisioning map, and an app for integrated installation, maintenance, and operation. These components enable operators to rapidly develop capabilities for broadband service operation, perform targeted development of broadband users, and improve installation rates. A lightweight mini OSS for number provisioning can be deployed in as fast as three months, enabling operators to quickly provision numbers for broadband services.
Additionally, number provisioning maps accurately display network resource information from different dimensions, including global position, regional position, and building dimensions, so operators can develop service packages and user development strategies based on bandwidth resources. The app for integrated installation, maintenance, and operation realizes business hall mobilization. Installation and maintenance personnel can promote different service packages for users during door-to-door installation and maintenance, and community promotion activities to seize more marketing opportunities, accelerating broadband user development.
Guo Dazheng, General Manager of Huawei's Network SingleOSS Domain, said, "Emerging markets' demands on broadband communication are far from being satisfied. The biggest obstacle hindering the development of emerging markets is excessively low broadband ROI. We believe that by supporting fast network construction and fast operation, Huawei's FastReach solution can help operators develop their broadband user base rapidly and increase installation rates effectively. Therefore, operators are able to shorten ROI periods and construct valuable networks."
Broadband networks are the foundations for a smart society. Huawei, a world-leading ultra broadband (UBB) network solution provider, is committed to providing innovative future-oriented solutions for operators in the long term. To date, Huawei has provided UBB access services for 500 million home users around the world. In the future, Huawei will continue to work with global operators and industry partners to drive the sustainable development of the UBB industry and build a better connected world.
