BT tests 100Gbps fibre broadband service with Huawei

Tuesday 13 June 2017 | 08:27 CET | News
BT's networks arm Openreach announced a live demonstration of a 100Gbps broadband service at its R&D centre at Adastral Park. The demonstration used a standard residential fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) connection with advanced transmission technology developed with Huawei. A single fibre carriers the signal from the exchange to the customer. During the next phase of testing, Openreach and Huawei will use the high bandwidth to evolve the global PON (passive optical network) standards and push towards field trialling the technology.
