Hybrid Fiber & Copper Solution
ZTE's hybrid fiber & copper solution reuses the existing infrastructure to lower TCO, simplify deployment to shorten TTM, and provide a sustainable and future-proof way smooth migration from copper-only access to a fiber-only access platform. With the combination of optical and copper access technologies, such as VDSL2 17a Vectoring, 35b Vectoring, GPON and 10G PON latest technologies, the solution supports speed-up both copper broadband and fiber broadband access and help operators deploy on demand and smoothly migrate network from copper to optical fiber access.
ZTE's Copper-based G.fast technology can reuse the existing copper resources to provide FTTH-like gigabit bandwidth to homes, where optical fiber is unavailable in multi-story buildings or old buildings. Normally fiber pavement is difficult, sometimes restricted by property or land private ownership, fiber laying is not approved. G.fast solution can meet the requirements of FTTH-like high speed, less cost on equipment and civil work, simple installation and fast delivery.
