ZTE Wins Contract for Third Phase of ANTEL GPON Expansion

  • ZTE Corporation
SHENZHEN, CHINA - ZTE Corporation (ZTE), a global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, announced it has won a contract for the third phase of a GPON capacity expansion contract with Uruguay’s Administración Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (ANTEL).

ANTEL has a 97-percent share of Uruguay’s fixed network voice and broadband market. It also provides mobile communications services. In 2010, ANTEL began using the state-of-the-art GPON technology to deploy a national FTTH network. ZTE has provided GPON products and services to ANTEL for three consecutive years.

As part of the project ZTE will provide a ZXA10 C300 optical access platform to ANTEL. This platform is a future proof, converged full-service platform that fully meets ANTEL's current demands for broadband services. It also supports smooth future upgrades to NG PON and WDM PON in the future. Over the past two years, ZTE has helped ANTEL complete the construction of a 120 Mbps high-speed broadband network. Further, the network also provides FTTH-based VOIP, HIS, and IPTV services to 540,000 households.

Once the phase three capacity expansion is complete, the GPON network will cover 800,000 households across Uruguay. It will provide households and enterprises with FTTH, FTTB (building) and mobile backhaul services. This capacity expansion will increase the Uruguayan broadband penetration rate and access rate to industry-leading levels, laying the foundation for the further deployment of smart city, smart government, and cloud computing services.
