Huawei launches Pizza OLT solution to speed up FTTH networks

Huawei OLT solution for FTTH network
Huawei has launched its Pizza Optical Line Terminal (OLT) solution, assisting operators to speed up the deployment of FTTH networks.

With fiber access nodes continuously being moved downwards, OLTs are deployed closer to users. As deployment scenarios are varied and complex, operators urgently require smaller and lower-density OLTs to meet a range of requirements.

Huawei’s Pizza OLT MA5801 is designed at only one U in height, supporting dual AC or DC power supplies and a range of operating temperature.

It offers two configurations. In the GPON solution, the Pizza OLT supports a maximum of eight ports and covers more than 500 users in typical use scenarios. In the PON combo solution, the Pizza OLT supports smooth evolution from GPON to XG-PON. It can be upgraded to gigabit ultra-broadband (UBB) access without the need to change components.

Huawei provides multiple FTTH solutions based on the new Pizza OLTs. These OLTs can be applied in the following scenarios to meet requirements for economical and efficient network construction.

Mobile operators can use existing backhaul network resources and cabinet space when building FTTH networks in scenarios of fast network construction through fixed-mobile convergence (FMC). They can deploy Huawei’s Pizza OLTs in their mobile cabinets and lay short-distance drop fibers to cover surrounding households.

Operators can uniformly build, operate, and maintain passive optical LAN (POL) networks using Huawei’s Pizza OLTs in enterprises’ all-optical campus scenarios. Operators can lease these networks to campuses or enterprises and deploy all-optical access services in enterprise campuses.

Operators can roll out FTTH network coverage in sparsely-populated rural areas deploying Huawei’s Pizza OLTs, Class C++ GPON optical modules with high power budgets, and a one-stop outdoor site solution in common coverage scenarios for national broadband.

Operators can use the microwave backhaul solution to achieve reliable FTTH network access at long distances in geographically complex areas, such as islands and mountainous areas. Operators can reduce deployment time by 70 percent and strike a balance between investment expenditures and network coverage.

To date, Huawei has provided UBB access services for 500 million home users.
