China : Huawei MA5800 Access Platform Wins Best Fixed Broadband Innovation Award at Broadband World Forum 2016.

Huawei today announced that its MA5800 access platform has won the Best Fixed Broadband Innovation award at the Broadband Awards, part of Broadband World Forum (BBWF) 2016. This award showcases Huaweis innovation in the fixed access domain, especially in broadband bandwidth, network quality and user experience.

At the Broadband World Forum 2014, Huawei released the industrys first distributed MA5800 access platform. Unlike traditional architecture, the open and programmable hardware and software framework of MA5800 allows distributed architecture that supports smooth capacity expansion. With one MA5800, 16,000 households can enjoy ultra high-definition (UHD) 4K video services at the same time, which will meet the anticipated increase in user demand for ultra-broadband in the coming 5-10 years. Also, the Flex-PON solution integrates XG-PON, XGS-PON and 40G PON, achieving smooth evolution from 10G PON to 40G PON. At the same time, with the release of the 100G PON prototype based on the MA5800 platform, smooth evolution to 100G PON can be achieved without replacing the platform, which will help operators save more than 30% of their investment.

Jeff Wang, President of the Huawei Access Network Product Line, said, We are very proud to receive the Best Fixed Broadband Innovation award, which recognizes our innovation in the fixed access network domain. Huaweis MA5800 access platform can fulfill the requirement of network and services in the Gigabit access era, supporting operators to build wider, faster and smarter ultra-broadband access networks to provide high-quality user experience under several scenarios, such as 4K and 8K UHD video, virtual reality, smart home and passive optical LAN (POL)."

As the leading global ultra-broadband solution provider, Huawei is dedicated to creating innovation in the PON domain through continuous research and development. Huawei has made outstanding contributions in this domain by actively participating in setting international standards and holding several important positions in standards organizations. Huaweis distributed access platform MA5800 has been commercially deployed by over 50 operators worldwide and gained recognition from more and more operators in the Gigabit access era.
