[Shenzhen, China, June 21, 2018] Huawei will partner with OTE Group to upgrade Fixed Broadband networks in Greece using Huawei’s SuperVector solution, to deliver up to 200 Mbit/s broadband services in the Mediterranean nation.
OTE Group is the largest telecom operator in Greece. Under the unified COSMOTE commercial brand, it provides a full range of telecommunication services: fixed-line and mobile telephony, broadband Internet access, TV services and integrated ICT solutions. Over the past two decades, OTE Group has been implementing a large telecommunication infrastructure upgrade project, installing fiber optics across the country, with investments exceeding €2 billion over the past six years and new investments worth another €2 billion being completed by 2022.
Huawei's SuperVector solution modernizes Fiber-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) network infrastructure, providing broadband speeds of up to 200 Mbit/s. With the SuperVector solution, time-to-market is shortened, installation costs decrease, and deployment time is reduced. The solution provides 384-line SuperVector access capabilities per board. The installation and interfaces of the SuperVector solution are compatible with DSL lines on the network, allowing it to be quickly upgraded and rebuilt. SuperVector boards are also compatible with DSL terminals on the network, allowing smooth upgrades without affecting user experience.
George Tsonis, Executive Director Network Planning & Devops of OTE Group, said, "OTE Group invests intensively in new-generation networks and modern infrastructure as a prerequisite for the digital development of Greece. In co-operation with Huawei, we are now able to offer upgraded broadband services to households and businesses at speeds of up to 200 Mbit/s. We consistently invest in innovative technologies, so that our customers enjoy the best Internet experience."
Chen Le, Chief Executive Officer of Huawei Greece Rep. Office, said, "OTE Group chose Huawei's state-of-the-art solution to upgrade the existing network, improving network capabilities as well as user experience. This demonstrates that the upgrade of existing network infrastructures with SuperVector is a cost-effective solution."
As a global leader of the ultra-broadband industry in the Gigaband era, Huawei has long been committed to providing operators with future-oriented ultra-broadband network solutions. Huawei's SuperVector solution is attracting worldwide attention because it can provide users with over 100 Mbit/s broadband access. Additionally, Huawei has made significant contributions to the formulation of SuperVector standards (ITU-T G.993.2 Annex Q). Moreover, Huawei has already been recognized by the telecommunications industry for its effective collaboration with telecom providers in the development of the one-stop FTTC SuperVector solution. Huawei will continue to promote the large-scale deployment of new copper line technologies such as SuperVector, helping to create a larger, faster and smarter ultra-bandwidth network (UBB), with the goal of providing a better connectivity experience to users.
