Huawei deploys trial FTTH network for Qtel in Qatar
Huawei, a leader in providing next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, announced that it has successfully tested the trial phase of it’s fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network deployment project for Qtel, the leading integrated service provider in Qatar.
Huawei has been working with Qtel in the area of optical networks since 2003 and successfully supported Qtel to sustain the peak traffic during 15th Doha Asian Games in 2006. Successful testing of FTTH project in Qtel will further deepen the cooperation and relationship to address the market needs in the most beneficial way for both parties.
The tested GPON FTTH network by Qtel would provide ultra high speed connectivity to houses in Mesaieed and Westbay Lagoon through the use of optical line terminal (OLT) and optical network terminals (ONT). These terminals can accommodate various application scenarios such as commercial buildings, residential apartments and villas.
With Huawei's cutting edge GPON FTTH solution, Qtel can fully meet the current and future demands for ultra-high bandwidth access while delivering a better service experience for its customers. It will increase Qtel's sustainable competitive advantage for its business growth by introducing more customized solutions and applications.
"We are delighted to cooperate and work with Qtel in its GPON FTTH trial project," said Alan Wang, General Manager of Huawei Qatar." We are committed to leveraging our innovative optical access solutions and extensive global application experiences to provide highly responsive services to Qtel ", he adds.
Based on a terabit access platform, Huawei's FTTH system provides unified access to data, voice and video services. Underpinned by the large-capacity platform with an ultra-high optical branching ratio, it provides robust broadband capabilities, flattens the network structure, and protects investment by supporting smooth evolution to 10-Gbps PON.
