Huawei announced that it has partnered with Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) for a successful rollout of fiber-to-the-curb (FTTC)/fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) solutions to modernize PTCL’s fixed networks that will provide ultra-broadband services economically and efficiently.
PTCL is Pakistan’s largest integrated operator, and it owns 95% of local fixed broadband access networks and plenty of access copper line resources. In order to meet growing demands for the Internet-based real-time video services, PTCL is committed to providing higher bandwidth and bringing better customer experience. PTCL is transforming its network for providing 20 Mbit/s on average and 100 Mbit/s or even 1000 Mbit/s ultra-broadband services in high-value areas. To achieve these goals, PTCL, being the trendsetter of ICT services in the region, is introducing emerging broadband technologies, for example, VDSL2, vectoring, SuperVector, G.fast and GPON for enhancing user experience. Huawei used a network planning tool to help PTCL build high-performance networks targeting high-value areas and users. In brownfield areas, through VDSL2 technologies, PTCL increased average bandwidth to 20 Mbit/s within 1000 meters and 50 Mbit/s within 800 meters by enabling vectoring. For high-value areas, Huawei provided the G.fast solution, enabling PTCL to deliver bandwidth higher than 100 Mbit/s. In addition, Huawei developed a line expert system, which can locate any faults rapidly and precisely for rectification, providing users with high-class broadband experience. In greenfield areas, PTCL is rolling out GPON-based FTTH networks.
Saad Muzaffar Waraich, PTCL’s Chief Technology and Information Officer (CTIO), said,
“We are glad for the strategic cooperation with Huawei on fixed network modernization. Technically, Huawei’s solution makes it possible for us to build the most competitive network. By deploying Huawei FTTC/FTTH solutions, we are able to provide more users with higher bandwidth and better experience based on existing copper line resources and new fiber lines.”
