Huawei and TIME dotCom (TIME) jointly signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on the construction of a pilot 10 Gigabit Passive Optical Network (10G PON), aiming to provide gigabit ultra-broadband for fixed access users in Malaysia.
The gigabit ultra-broadband will meet demands of applications such as Virtual Reality (VR)/Augmented Reality (AR), cloud computing and others. In anticipation of future developments and requirements, Huawei entered into a MoU with TIME to pilot a 10G PON network to test potential network capabilities.
The unique Class D high-power symmetric 10G PON/GPON Combo optical module has an optical power budget 25% higher than industry average, increasing the coverage distance by 17 km to connect more users. In addition, based on the proprietary distributed edge computing architecture, Telemetry fast data collection technology, hardware data collection chip, and industry-leading artificial intelligence algorithms (PON optical path characteristic algorithm, Wi-Fi channel optimization algorithm, and optical path failure prediction algorithm), Huawei has launched the industry’s first network cloud engine (NCE) and developed multiple methods to help TIME build future-oriented network Operations & Maintenance (O&M) capabilities.
“Network infrastructure is constantly evolving and we are excited at the prospects that 10G PON would have. An upgrade to a higher capacity network infrastructure is critical to supporting the future bandwidth requirements of our customers,” said Ang Thing Jiun, Chief Technology Officer, TIME.
