There Is No Future Without Fiber!

At a fixed-line forum, Huawei explains that 5G has no basis without fiber. Fiber is the best, maybe the only choice.

The outfitter Huawei has made a clear statement for fiber. Steven Wu, Vice President of Huawei’s Carrier Business Group, said at the Broadband World Forum in Amsterdam on October 16, 2019, “Everyone is talking about 5G, and a well-designed fiber-optic network is a foundation for 5G’s home broadband service and low latency Fiber is the best, maybe the only choice. “

In the past, Huawei had not been so clear about fiber. The equipment supplier also provides Vectoring, or Docsis 3.1 hardware and software.

Wu limited, however, that fiber could also Fiber To Curb (FTTC), so merely Vectoring means, but almost exclusively concrete examples of FTTH (Fiber To The Home) from France, China, and the Philippines.

In France, the government wants 9 million households to subsidize the fiber-optic expansion to 50 percent and more. For the government provided 3.3 billion euros.

In China, the motto of network operator China Mobile is “No Fiber, No Future,” said Wu. Here Huawei has supported the network operator in a synergy strategy in network expansion. “China Mobile now has 117 million home broadband customers,” Wu said.

In the Philippines, Huawei is outfitter to competing network operator Globe Telecom and Smart Communications in the introduction of 5G technology. Here is “an optical network” the basis for the expansion.
