Etisalat and Huawei to boost region’s fibre connectivity

Abu Dhabi: Laying the foundation for the next generation of super-speed connectivity, Etisalat Group, Asia and Africa and Huawei, an information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider announced on Thursday the signing of a new deal.

The agreement will see the two companies — for the first time in the region — working together to trial ultra-fast 40Gbps Gigabit Passive Optic Network (GPON) technology across Etisalat Group footprint in the coming four years.

Etisalat Group and Huawei outlined the roadmap for trialing a first of its kind 40Gbps fiber network that can eventually offer more reliable, faster, and affordable broadband telecommunication services to households and businesses. The project is based on GPON technology, which can provide the speed and bandwidth required for seamless services including voice over IP, high-speed Internet, and IPTV.
