Huawei Contributes to ITU-T Release of Broadband Standard – Dec 22, 2014– Shenzhen, China (Techreleased) – ITU-T this month has approved the broadband standard, a milestone in standardization. Huawei has played a pivotal role in the development of standards and products since 2011, which are designed to deliver access speeds of up to 1 Gbit/s over copper wires, enabling rapid deployment of ultra-broadband networks without the need for fiber to the home (FTTH) deployment. broadband standard

The proposals contributed by Huawei to the ITU-T standardization committee cover a wide range of core technologies, including time division duplex (TDD), basic frame structure, forward error correction (FEC) channel coding, line activation negotiation mechanism, multi-line crosstalk cancelation, online reconfiguration, and power-saving working mode.

Huawei’s key milestones in the development of the standard include:

  • February 2014: Huawei conducted the industry’s second trial with TeliaSonera in Northern Europe, verifying the compatibility between and ADSL2+/VDSL2. To date, Huawei has carried out lab tests with more than 15 operators, conducted trials with four operators, and signed the industry’s first ever commercial contract with a top European operator.
  • October 2013: Huawei overcame technical barriers, and began to gear up for commercialization by conducting the industry’s first ever trial with BT, catalyzing readiness for commercial use and accumulating extensive engineering experience.
  • August 2013: Huawei launched the industry’s first multi-port product prototype supporting IP68 waterproofing.
  • November 2011: Huawei unveiled the industry’s first technical prototype, demonstrating the feasibility of ultra-high-speed gigabit access over one twisted pair.
Mr. Jeff Wang, President, Huawei Access Network Product Line, stated, “The release of the broadband standard is of great significance within the industry and we are honored to have contributed to the release of this standard. Copper wires are important resources for fixed network operators, and the combination of copper reuse and innovative technologies speeds up access, deployment, and ROI for operators. is an ideal alternative solution to enable gigabit access when FTTH deployment is not feasible, and enables operators to realize quick ultra-broadband deployment for added business success.”

Huawei continuously innovates within the copper access domain, and has launched innovative vectoring and technologies and products. For example, SuperVector is the recent outcome of Huawei’s research in ultra-high-speed copper access and is a Huawei-developed technology that can triple the copper line access speed on outdoor cabinet sites without the need for network restructuring.

Huawei is committed to promoting the standardization and productization of new technologies and will continue to play an active role in achieving cooperation across the industry chain, setting development trends for ultra-high bandwidth networks, and providing an immersive and fully-connected communications experience for end users.
