Mobily successfully implements LTTH technology in collaboration with Nokia
Mobily in collaboration with Nokia has successfully conducted a trial of LTE to the Home (LTTH) and implemented on the ground using FastMile technology to enable LTE technology on 4G network and become available on 2G networks. This comes out of Mobily interest to provide the best speeds for its customers with high quality.
“We have a long and fruitful relationship with Nokia, and this successful trial starts a new chapter in our association, through applying FastMile Nokia technology that will enable Mobily to extend the reach of our network in new areas. At the same time it will allow us to use the existing infrastructure thus helping us to control our expenditure,” said Alaa Malki – CNO
“We are pleased to work with Mobily on this trial and support their plans to provide best-in-class broadband services to their subscribers. With this deployment, Mobily will be able to attract new customers who are currently unable to enjoy broadband services. Nokia FastMile will also allow them to minimize the deployment cost by utilizing the existing mobile infrastructure,” said Tony Awad, Head of Mobily Customer Team, Nokia.
Such contributions from Mobily is due to it is a leading company in the field of Telecom and IT, and out of its pursuit to implement every latest technologies for the benefit of its customers to enjoy high quality services in line with current and future technological developments.
What is FTTH
Fiber to the home (FTTH) is the delivery of a communications signal over optical fiber from the operator’s switching equipment all the way to a home or business, thereby replacing existing copper infrastructure such as telephone wires and coaxial cable. FTTH is a relatively new and fast growing method of providing vastly higher bandwidth to consumers and businesses, and thereby enabling more robust video, internet and voice services.
Benefit of FTTH
Compared with other access technology like xDSL, FTTH has below benefits:
High Speed, FTTH access speed can reach 1000Mbps or 10Gbps, while xDSL is less than 100Mbps;
Long Distance, for example, the common form of gigabit Ethernet (1Gbit/s) runs only to 300 ft (91 m). However, 1Gbit/s Ethernet over fiber can easily reach tens of miles;
Future-Proof, the fiber data rate of the connection is usually limited by the terminal equipment rather than the fiber, permitting at least some speed improvements by equipment upgrades before the fiber itself must be upgraded;
FTTH Technology GPON and P2P
GPON and P2P are the mainstream technology used in FTTH deployment, below section describes basic concepts related to the fiber to the home (FTTH) solution from the user side to the network side on FTTH networking using PON and P2P upstream transmission, respectively.
