Etisalat, Huawei hold first talks on 5G, 40 GPON

Wednesday 7 May 2014 | 15:09 CET | News
Etisalat Group and Huawei have met to discuss the standards and roadmap for coordinating the development, design and deployment of future ICT platforms such as 5G mobile broadband and fibre-powered GPON networks. This follows the MoU signed earlier this year by the companies. Fifth-generation mobile broadband promises 10 Gbps to end-users, supporting services such as multi-user UHD telepresence, real 3D, virtual reality and augmented reality. The 40G PON system uses wavelength division multiplexing technology that allows a 40 Gbps downstream transmission rate and a 10 Gbps upstream rate.
