Huawei claims first 10 Gbps hybrid fibre coaxial platform

Chinese networking giant Huawei has launched new hybrid fibre coaxial (HFC) access platform, claiming it’s the first to top 10 Gbps throughput.

The platform supports 10G DOCSIS3.1 in cable and 10G PON in fibre. Huawei says t offers multiple-system operators (MSOs) the ability to keep pace with the rise of Gigaband access and the future industry evolution to IP videos, at a time when the trend towards multiplay is accelerating and differentiation is harder than ever to achieve.

The platform consists of a large-capacity OLT (Optical Line Terminal), high-density 10G PON interface board, DOCSIS3.1 based D-CCAP (Distributed Converged Cable Access Platform), 10G PON ONT (Optical Network Terminal) and unified network management system. Huawei is positioning it as the best of both worlds for fixed-line operators.

“The era of Gigaband access is coming,” said Jeff Wang, President of Huawei’s Access Network Product Line. “Huawei has invested heavily in innovations in fiber, coaxial cable, copper wire, and wifi technologies. Our 10 Gbit/s HFC access platform will help MSOs to quickly roll out Gigabit networks with lower TCO and high O&M efficiency. With this platform, MSOs can migrate to IP videos in the future.”
