Shantinagar, Karnatka, India, 2007/07/03 - Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. a leader in providing next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, announced that its broadband access products and solutions serve 50 million DSL customers worldwide.
Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. (“Huawei”), a leader in providing next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, announced that its broadband access products and solutions serve 50 million DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) customers worldwide. According to the latest report published by Infonetics, a data networking and telecom market research consulting firm, as of the first quarter of 2007, Huawei is still ranked No.1 in the global IP DSLAM (Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer) market.
Huawei has always been committed to innovation in access networks. 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. 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. For four consecutive years from 2003, Huawei grabbed the largest market share in IP DSLAM, making it a leader in IP access networks.
“Successfully serving 50 million DSL customers around the world demonstrates that Huawei’s broadband access products and services are widely recognized and adopted by industry operators globally,” said Mr. Daniel Tang, vice president of Huawei’s network product line. “By focusing on the needs of its customers, Huawei can offer innovative IP access solutions and services, enabling operators to largely reduce network TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) and achieve their business goals.”
“The milestone of 200 million DSL customers was just announced by DSL Forum,” said Michael Hanrahan, a member of the DSL Forum Board of Directors, a renowned standardization organization in the industry. “Huawei has been active in analyzing industry trends and setting industry standards, contributing to the development of DSL Standards and the worldwide use of broadband applications.”
By the end of 2006, Huawei had devoted more than 2,000 engineers to the R&D of access technology. As the leader in IP DSLAM and MSAN, Huawei had shipped more than 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.
