In the partnership, the technology is built upon BT’s existing FTTC infrastructure, whereas the equipment installed is that of Huawei’s, a latest multi-port G.FAST temperature-hardened and waterproof equipment. Besides, Huawei also provided a full end-to-end solution, including a headend optical line terminal (OLT), G.fast terminal, and a network management system.

With Huawei’s remote power solution, the need to deploy fiber to the home is lessened and users can obtain the same ultra-broadband services experience as fiber, to enjoy applications such as multiple 4KTV streams. The trial located in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire helps the operators deploy ultra-broadband networks more quickly and economically.

Considering its success, Huawei is developing a series of G.Fast products with different capacities and specifications to meet various operator needs in the global market.
