Ultrafast Fibre in New Zealand Partners With Huawei for FTTH

  • FTTH
  • GPON
HAMILTON, NEW ZEALAND - Ultrafast Fibre Ltd, the company responsible for deploying fiber as part of the New Zealand national broadband rollout, selected Huawei's FTTH access network technology for its deployment in towns and cities in the Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Taranaki and Wanganui regions.

New Zealand's national fiber network will be open access, and Huawei was selected in large part because of its experience providing equipment for open-access networks in other national networks. Residential and business customers will have a choice of retail service providers for services such as high-speed Internet, telephony and IPTV.

Huawei will supply its intelligent Layer 1 Optical Distribution Network (iODN) and Open Access Layer 2 network solutions. Access technologies used will include both GPON (using Huawei SmartAx MA5600T Optical Line Termination) and gigabit point-to-point Ethernet (using Huawei Quidway S9300 Terabit routing Metro Ethernet platforms). Huawei's CX600 400G Enhanced Metro Ethernet switching system will be used for aggregation, and the network will be managed end to end with Huawei unified Network Management System. The network can be upgraded to higher speed 10G XPON technology in the future.
