SHENZHEN, China -- Huawei released a symmetric 10G PON ON, the EchoLife V5 X Pro, which delivers 10 Gbps bidirectional ultra-fast transmission, zero-freezing WiFi and seamless coverage of an entire residence, providing users with carrier-class home WiFi experience.
Services such as 4K/8K, virtual reality and online gaming are becoming popular in homes, stimulating explosive growth of data traffic in operator networks and posing great challenges to existing home networks. Key problems include insufficient network bandwidth causing poor user experience, broadband service limitations because of bottlenecks, and 30% to 60% of user experience complaints related to WiFi. With 80% of home data traffic carried over WiFi, WiFi network quality has become an urgent issue for operators.
Huawei's EchoLife V5 X Pro is designed to solve key problems such as frequent signal conflict, strong interference, poor coverage and low WiFi rate.
The EchoLife V5 X Pro gateway supports smooth evolution from GPON to 10G PON and provides up to 10 Gbps wired transmission in both upstream and downstream directions, enabling gigabit broadband access for high-bandwidth services such as home video, entertainment, VR, gaming and private line.
The gateway includes WiFi 6 technology with an air interface rate of up to 6 Gbps, four times that of WiFi 5. The dual-4x4 high-performance omni-directional antenna array design reduces attenuation from walls by 25%. It also supports the highest 160 MHz spectrum bandwidth in the industry, and intelligently avoids busy channels by using radar channel scanning to help users connect to the fastest WiFi channel. Huawei used a proprietary optimization algorithm to shorten WiFi transmission delay to less than 7 ms, eliminating stalling and delay, and ensuring ultimate user experience for cutting-edge immersive services such as 4K/8K IPTV, online gaming and cloud VR.
In large residences where WiFi signals of a single ONT cannot cover the entire space, the EchoLife V5 X Pro gateway supports the PremiumWiFi solution to flexibly mesh network with a series of edge ONT products. This extends WiFi coverage, providing ubiquitous high-speed broadband experience. PremiumWiFi uses a cloud management platform to visually monitor WiFi performance in real time, help operator detect WiFi faults with one click and reduce home visits for troubleshooting by 30%, significantly reducing maintenance and operating costs.
Shields Energy's cloud-based IoT subscription service monitors power usage for telcos. It's currently only available to service providers for internal use, but it's an offering CSPs ultimately could provide to their customers for differentiation, lower churn and more revenue.
CBTS debuted a family of 10 Gbit optical networking solutions, coupled with off-the-shelf hardware and systems integration services designed to replicate the vendor experience of proprietary system days.
Tune in to Broadband World News Radio on February 14 at 11 a.m. ET / 8 a.m. PT / 4 p.m. UK when John Isch, Practice Director of the Network and Voice Center of Excellence at Orange Business Services, discusses use cases, ROI and misconceptions of software-defined wide-area networks, virtualization and cloud.
Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other – or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.
Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers – simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
