China-based telecommunications network vendor Huawei Technologies said its broadband access products and solutions had racked up 50 million Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) customers worldwide.
In Australia Huawei has deployed MSAN & IP DSLAMs in a number of companies including Optus, TPG and IP Systems as well as TFL and SAMOATEL in the Pacific islands.
Joseph Zhou, managing director of Huawei Australia said Australia is a very important market for Huawei and its office here serve as the regional hub for the Pacific.
“We have identified strong areas for growth in the region and our IP DSLAM products are an example of our industry leading technology,” he said.
In early 2001, Huawei launched the world’s first commercial IP DSLAM product, accelerating the transformation to IP access network. Following that, Huawei took the lead in rolling out FE (Fast Ethernet) and GE(Gigabit Ethernet)-based large-capacity IP DSLAM, which enabled operators to construct flattened, high-bandwidth, future-oriented broadband networks, said Zhou.
“In 2006, Huawei unveiled the industry’s first terabit GPON access system and FTTx solution, which helped operators fulfill the requirements of current services such as Multi-play, and paved the way for future ultra-high bandwidth services,” he said.
Huawei has also shipped around 120 million DSLAM and MSAN ports to customers in 85 countries and regions around the world, through world class carriers such as China Telecom, China Netcom, BT and KPN.
