The solution reuses existing wireless sites to build full-fiber access networks for mobile operators quickly and at low cost

Huawei along with HKT Hong Kong and Globe Philippines recently held an online commercial release conference to launch the AirPON solution.

“This solution reuses existing wireless sites to build full-fiber access networks for mobile operators quickly and at a low cost,” said a press release.

As mobile operators transform from mobile to full-service operations, they face huge challenges in FFTH network construction.

Traditionally, operators had to deploy centralized OLTs in central office equipment rooms and layout massive optical cables to reach users. This required large scale initial investment and the resolution of complex problems such as ROW acquisition. As a result, network construction has always been time consuming and expensive while services have been slow to provision.

Huawei AirPON solution specifically addresses these challenges. “The AirPON solution shortens the optical cables between OLTs and users from over 3 km to below 300 m, greatly improving the efficiency of optical cable deployment and reduces the ROI period to less than 3 years. With it, operations can reap benefits faster when building full fiber access networks,” said Gary Lu, President of Huawei Network Marketing and Solution Sales Department.

“HKT would like to replicate the solution to village area or low rise buildings in the urban area to extend our Ultra Broadband coverage. AirPON allows the installation of PON equipment on the rooftop which can be suitable for PON deployment in low rise old buildings in HK,” said Peter Lam, Managing Director of HKT Engineering Dept Hong Kong.

“Huawei's AirPON solution helps us to efficiently roll out FFTH networks with simple ROW permitting and site acquisition and enables us to quickly provision fiber broadband services,” added Joel Augustin, Vice President of Globe Philippines.
