Jazztel Turns On Its FTTH network
SHENZHEN, China -- ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK/Ashare stock code: 000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, and Jazztel, an IBEX 35 company and leading telecommunication service provider with its own network in Spain, have announced that Jazztel’s national high-speed broadband fibre to the home (FTTH) network deployment is progressing satisfactorily and has begun commercial operation.
The FTTH framework agreement, signed between ZTE and Jazztel in November 2012, plans to build a broadband network within two years that would cover three million home and corporate users and bring in a new era for Spain’s broadband market.
Jazztel is a fixed-network operator offering fixed-line voice, data and internet as well as mobile communications services to a user base of more than 1.3 million. In the past three years, Jazztel has seen its users and revenue grow at an annual rate of 20 percent, making it one of the fastest growing operators in Europe. With fixed broadband developing, and bandwidth demand soaring in Spain, Jazztel’s next step was to build its own FTTH network.
ZTE provided Jazztel with an end-to-end turnkey solution that includes a full range of services including equipment, engineering and maintenance. To make the FTTH network future-proof and scalable, ZTE offered a next-generation, integrated full-service optical access platform, the ZXA10 C300. This allows for smooth evolution to next generation passive optical networks (NG PON) and wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) PON technology.
