G.fast is telcos last, best hope for competing against cablecos and broadband service providers that are building all-fiber networks. Huawei intends to be a major player, at least outside of North America, in the coming gigantic market for G.fast gear that telcos will buy.
Jeff Wang, president of Huawei’s access network product line said in a statement: “The release of the G.fast broadband standard is of great significance within the industry and we are honored to have contributed to the release of this standard. Copper wires are important resources for fixed network operators, and the combination of copper reuse and innovative G.fast technologies speeds up access, deployment, and ROI for operators. G.fast is an ideal alternative solution to enable gigabit access when FTTH deployment is not feasible, and enables operators to realize quick ultra-broadband deployment for added business success.”
Huawei is boasting about its role in developing G.fast and getting it to market in the aftermath of ITU-T approving the G.fast broadband standard. It says it has played “a pivotal role” since 2011 in the telcos’ quest to enable copper phone wires to provide speeds up to 1 Gbps. — and without the need to build all-fiber networks.
– It contributed to the ITU-T G.fast standard such core technologies as time division duplex (TDD), basic frame structure, forward error correction (FEC) channel coding, line activation negotiation mechanism, multi-line crosstalk cancellation, online reconfiguration, and power-saving working mode.
– In February 2014 it conducted the industry’s second G.fast trial with TeliaSonera, which verified compatibility between G.fast and ADSL2+/VDSL2.
– Huawei has so far conducted G.fast lab tests with more than 15 telcos, conducted G.fast trials with four telcos and signed the industry’s first ever G.fast commercial contract with a top European operator.
– It began to gear up for G.fast commercialization by conducting the industry’s first ever G.fast trial with BT, a trial that accumulated extensive engineering experience.
– It launched the industry’s first multi-port G.fast product prototype supporting IP68 waterproofing.
– It unveiled the industry’s first G.fast technical prototype, demonstrating the feasibility of ultra-high-speed gigabit access over …
