[Shenzhen, China, March 30, 2012]: Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, recently participated in the second FSAN XG-PON1 (also known as 10G GPON) interoperability event on February 20-24, achieving full success in all tests.
Organized by the Research Institute of Telecommunications Transmission (RITT) and hosted by China Telecom, the second FSAN XG-PON1 test event focused on verifying correct implementations of ITU-T XG-PON1 standards. The tests were used to validate the clarity and integrity of the ITU-T recommended G.987.3, developed by ITU-T SG15 Q2, as the transmission convergence layer specification of XG-PON1.
The event was held in Shanghai, China, and brought together seven vendors of XG-PON1 equipment and integrated circuit devices. Using detailed test case descriptions provided by FSAN, the event enabled participating vendors to run numerous test cases alongside one another, resulting in 33 paired test sessions conducted over a one-week period.
Dr. Frank Effenberger, chairman of ITU-T Q2/15 said, “As with our past interoperability test events, the second FSAN XG-PON1 test event was very successful. Q2 and her sister standards development organizations establish the standards that enable vendors to reach interoperability, and we are committed to continuing our contribution towards that goal. A further two XG-PON1 test events are scheduled for June and October of this year, and we encourage more vendors and operators to participate in order to benefit from the standardization of interoperability-ready XG-PON1 solutions.”
Mr. Li Heshun, Vice President of Huawei Access Product Line, said, “Having actively participated in each test of FSAN interoperability, Huawei sees this latest test event as a major sign of the progress of the XG-PON1 standard, and as an important component of an ongoing series of XG-PON1 test events. This latest test event provided us with the necessary assurance that the XG-PON1 specification is stable, and it also proved that the XG-PON1 technology is ready for its upcoming commercial application.”
