[Amsterdam, Netherlands, October 17, 2019] At the 2019 Broadband World Forum (BBWF) award ceremony, Huawei SingleFAN Pro solution was named the Best Fixed Access Solution in recognition of its E2E innovations supporting smooth upgrade from GPON to 10G PON, simplified ODN deployment, and optimized home Wi-Fi experience. This award is testament to the industry's recognition of Huawei's continuous innovation in the broadband access field as well as its persisting efforts in leading the gigabit full-fiber access industry.
Huawei won the Best Fixed Access Solution award at BBWF 2019
As the most prestigious event in the fixed network field, BBWF has already reached its 18th instalment. Among all the awards at the BBWF, the Best Fixed Access Solution award is the most highly regarded, recognizing vendors whose solutions have boosted development in the fixed access field and improved user experience.
Based on a deep understanding of the current trends in gigabit full-fiber network construction, Huawei has launched the SingleFAN Pro solution, which explores the "three new" concepts: new blue ocean, new capability, and new experience. With this solution, operators can cope with key challenges such as long payback period, slow ODN deployment, high costs of gigabit upgrade, complicated O&M, and unguaranteed user experience. The solution ushers in the 5th generation fixed network gigabit era represented by 10G PON and Wi-Fi 6.
New blue ocean: The industry's first access network slicing technology enables unified access of enterprise and home broadband services on one network. Differentiated SLAs are provided, and fiber is extended to the room, desktop, and machine. This helps operators continuously develop new services and shorten the payback period.
New capability: Huawei-developed chips underpin the E2E innovation in OLTs, ODNs, and ONTs, support large-scale deployment of gigabit networks, and meet evolution requirements for the next decade. With the unique Flex-PON 2.0 technology, the network can be upgraded from GPON to 10G PON smoothly. The QuickODN technology supports plug-and-play in all scenarios throughout the ODN deployment, making fiber splicing unnecessary, simplifying fiber deployment, and shortening TTM by 30%. The ONT supports the symmetric 10G upstream port, and works with the user-side Wi-Fi 6, omnidirectional antennas, and Huawei-developed algorithms to provide ultimate experience for 4K/VR users.
New experience: Based on AI and big data technologies, the new cloud-based management platform iMaster NCE redefines the network O&M experience and user experience, reduces the number of home visits by 30%, and greatly lowers OPEX.
"Huawei is truly honored to receive the Best Fixed Access Solution award at the BBWF," said Jeffrey Zhou, President of Huawei Access Network Product Line. "We are grateful for the industry's recognition of our continuous innovation in the access network field. The SingleFAN Pro is an E2E gigabit full-fiber access solution oriented to the 5th generation fixed network era. Huawei is willing to cooperate with global operators to provide the best 4K/VR video experience for home users, offer reliable premium private lines for enterprise customers, continue to explore new blue ocean services, and enable an upward business cycle for the industry chain."
To date, more than 30 global operators have chosen Huawei's SingleFAN Pro solution to deploy gigabit full-fiber networks. In addition, more than 1.5 million 10G PON OLT ports of have been delivered. As we enter the 5th generation fixed network era, Huawei — a world-leading ultra-broadband access solutions provider — is willing to work with upstream and downstream partners across the industry chain to build a prosperous industry ecosystem, explore innovative applications, and accelerate the construction of a fully connected, intelligent world.
