ZTE Corp. (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ) says it has conducted a full-service commercial 10G GPON test for Spanish network operator Jazztel. The test verified GPON and 10G PON co-existence, which ZTE touts as proof that its 10G PON platform is "capable of supporting any service under all foreseeable scenarios."
Jazztel selected ZTE to supply GPON equipment for a nationwide fiber to the home (FTTH) network that began operations in October 2013 (see "ZTE provides turnkey FTTH network for Jazztel in Spain"). The service provider was interested in pathways to future capacity expansion.
"Jazztel needs to constantly innovate in order to provide our customers with the best possible service and ensure our competitiveness. The ZTE xGPON solution enables the expansion of our FTTH network capabilities in an effective manner," said Jazztel CEO José Miguel Garcia Fernández.
"We are delighted to have collaborated with Jazztel in completing the first 10G PON full-service commercial network test in Spain," summarized Xiao Ming, vice president of ZTE. "Our 10G PON solution will enable carriers to simplify their networks, improve broadband efficiency, and meet the ever increasing demand for ultra-high broadband to pave the way for revenue generation with tiered service categories. We are committed to working with carriers and other stakeholders to advance the proliferation of 10G PON applications."
