Huawei launches GigaHome smart home platform
Huawei launched its new GigaHome solution at the FTTH Conference 2017 in Marseilles, France last week, to help operators build smart and high-performance home networks for customers.
The GigaHome platform is designed to support multiple digital home applications to deliver smart home services that are efficient, secure and accessible.
The E2E solution focuses on home gateways and supports flexible Wi-Fi extension through media including CAT5 lines, power lines and wireless repeaters.
Huawei said the solution can provide smart home coverage with a Wi-Fi speed rate of up to 300Mbps. Under the solution, home gateways adopt dual cores and enable gigabit Wi-Fi access by using technologies including Wi-Fi hardware forwarding, dual-band, 802.11ac and 4x4 MIMO.
Ultimately the solution is designed to help operators shift focus from providing traditional home broadband to smart home services capable of generating a higher ARPU.
Huawei Access Network president Jeff Wang said the vendor plans to continue to focus on helping operators accelerate their digital transformation by supporting them in offering video and smart home services.
“Focus on customer demand is the driving force for Huawei's continued development and continuous innovation,” he said.
“Huawei's home network solution provides a full Wi-Fi coverage, and a good performance home network infrastructure, operable and manageable cloud-based management platform and open ecological system to enhance the home network experience, operational efficiency and bring new value-added services to operators.”
