China Unicom Won the “Leading Connected Smart Home Operator” Award at BBWF 2022, Leading Global Home Broadband Innovation

[Netherlands, Amsterdam, October 19, 2022] At the award ceremony of the Broadband World Forum (BBWF) 2022, China Unicom won the “Leading Connected Smart Home Operator” award, proving its strength as a leader in the digital home field. BBWF is the most important annual event in the fixed network industry. It has been held for 21 times so far. The “Leading Connected Smart Home Operator” award is designed to recognize operators with outstanding innovations and practices in the broadband industry.

Currently, the digital home industry has entered the fast lane due to preferential policies, innovative technologies, and business model changes. As a pioneer and active player of China’s digital home ecosystem, China Unicom cooperates with Huawei to develop the innovative fiber to the room (FTTR) broadband solution based on its network infrastructure advantages. In addition, China Unicom officially releases the FTTR service in 30 provinces across China. From one fiber to one network, FTTR makes homes smart, and enables users to enjoy real gigabit experience, promoting the development of digital home and economy.

FTTR helps build an all-optical gigabit network for home users

Compared with traditional FTTH networking, FTTR extends fibers to each room to replace twisted-pair network cables, breaking the rate limit and solving home Wi-Fi coverage problems. Both master and slave FTTR units provide gigabit network ports and Wi-Fi 6 connections, providing home users with all-optical gigabit Wi-Fi featuring high bandwidth, low latency, premium experience, and smooth upgrade to meet various service requirements.

To meet digital operation requirements of broadband networks, China Unicom has built a centralized operations platform to support the digital transformation of broadband services. By deploying FTTR optical broadband, China Unicom gets a foothold on home gateways with first-mover advantages, and builds an innovative ecosystem centered on “C system + CULink”. Based on this ecosystem, China Unicom can provide various innovative smart home products and premium services to improve broadband operation and service efficiency. For example, Huawei’s FTTR-based teenager anti-addiction service launched by China Unicom is favored by many parents.

As a world-leading integrated intelligent information service operator, China Unicom won the “Leading Connected Smart Home Operator” award from BBWF, proving its leading strength in the digital home field. In the future, China Unicom will continue to make efforts in smart home innovation, create innovative applications, share new achievements, and promote the prosperity of the digital home industry.
