FTTH upgrade: China 2018 will introduce gigabit fiber to the home
Infonetics latest "VDSL, G.Fast and next-generation FTTH strategy and supplier Leadership Survey" survey of 20 globally in fixed broadband services for telecom operators to think about the next generation of broadband technology. The survey found that 40 percent of respondents operators stand will introduce Gigabit broadband service in 2017, and this year compared to only 15%.
Jeff Heynen Infonetics analyst pointed out that income is an important means of broadband fixed network operators to offset the decline in voice services. Drive fixed-line broadband business development is mainly driven online video services. Multi-screen display, smart home, security is the main fixed-line broadband future applications.
Infonetics regard the press release did not mention what the survey was sent to operators, is included Chinese operators. Although there is no information in this regard, based on this research, we can play it. It expects Chinese carriers will also be introduced in 2018, Gigabit FTTH. Such projection is based are listed below, we see no reason.
Broadband China's grand strategy requires China's telecom operators catching up on the big trend of world development of broadband.
Broadband access services open to private enterprise, is expected to introduce more competition in this area.
100M FTTH has developed a considerable period of time, the next step should be Gigabit.
Online video services are gaining faster development in China.
Chinese telecom operators when decisions are difficult to predict, although microscopic, but the macro fooled Gigabit FTTH become mainstream of the world, China will catch up, the advanced countries will be a little later than the point, but earlier than other countries. This is particularly evident when seen FTTH into China.
5G yet in the next three years to develop, deploy 4G nearing completion after, carriers need new investment destination.
3 years after the 10G PON, WDM PON technology will be cheaper. Gigabit FTTH deployment costs significantly reduced.
4G mobile backhaul and prequels and other needs will have fiber access network bandwidth, higher demands.
