ANTEL taps ZTE for GPON FTTH in Uruguay
Administración Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (ANTEL) has selected ZTE Corp. (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ) to provide equipment for a major GPON fiber to the home (FTTH) deployment in Uruguay.
ZTE will provide its ZXA10 C300 system to ANTEL, which is Uruguay’s largest fixed-line operator and mobile carrier. The new GPON project is a continuation of ANTEL’s initial deployment of ZTE GPON-based FTTx equipment in 2011 (see “ANTEL taps ZTE for GPON in Uruguay”).
ANTEL plans to deploy a broadband network to support 100-Mbps services via a variety of architectures, including FTTH, fiber to the building (FTTB), and point-to-point backhaul, to more than 300,000 families and institutions across the country.
“We are honored to assist ANTEL with the GPON project deployment,” said ZTE Vice President Jiang Xiangyang. “Our innovative solutions and rich commercial experience will help ANTEL provide enhanced services to its users and maintain its leading position in Uruguay and Latin America.”
