At MWC 2014 (Mobile World Congress), Barcelona, ZTE today said it completed 10G PON test for Spanish telecoms Jazztel.
ZTE said the GPON and 10G PON co-existence test demonstrated that ZTE’s 10G PON solution is both backward and forward compatible and capable of supporting any service under all foreseeable scenarios.
The Chinese telecom equipment vendor tested the 10G PON network commercially using ITU-T G.987-compliant test schemes, which testify to GPON’s superiority in various scenarios especially for cloud-based enterprise services, video services and VoIP Centrex services.
“Jazztel needs to 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 José Miguel Garcia Fernández, chief executive officer of Jazztel.
Jazztel selected ZTE to build a national high-speed broadband FTTH network in November 2012 and the network began commercial operation in October, 2013. ZTE provided Jazztel with a turnkey solution that includes equipment, engineering and maintenance.
