Home Business IT Networking Huawei reveals Fibre to the Door networking

Huawei officials claim the company's new fibre to the door (FTTD) system allows high-speed broadband rollouts at reduced cost by reusing the existing cabling within buildings.

Huawei is extending its SingleFAN FTTx portfolio with the addition of products that allow the deployment of high-speed broadband (100Mbps to 1Gbps) to multi-tenanted buildings by using existing twisted pair and coaxial cables.

The idea is to run fibre to the telecom riser or to a point close to the individual apartment or office (eg in a corridor), and connect that to the existing phone, Ethernet or cable TV wiring.

This approach is said to provide more aggregate bandwidth than a conventional fibre to the building arrangement, with lower cost and disruption than fibre to the home.

To further simplify installation, the equipment that goes 'at the door' is remotely powered.

The FTTD system has been successfully tested on networks run by "many operators worldwide". It will soon go into a commercial trial in Europe and the Middle East, a Huawei spokesperson said.

We believe that the FTTD solution can help our customers resolve difficulties in deploying FTTH networks. Relying on the advantages of the FTTD solution such as ultra-broadband access through any medium, simple deployment, and remote management, operators can stay ahead of the fierce market competition and achieve business success," said You Yiyong, President, Access Network Product Line at Huawei.

Last year, Huawei was excluded by the Federal Government from consideration as a supplier to the NBN.
