BT Confirms Selection of Huawei for Next Gen Access

BT's Openreach has selected Huawei as one of its strategic partners for deploying Next-Generation Access on a national scale as part of BT's £2.5 billion investment in fibre. Huawei will supply a number of access products for the rollout and has already been working with Openreach to support the launch of FTTC super-fast broadband services this year.

"We are proud to contribute to the construction of BT's pan-UK fibre deployment," said Chengdong Yu, president of Huawei Europe. "Huawei has extensive experience in designing and delivering optical access solutions around the world and we will apply this experience together with our strong innovation abilities, to collaborate with BT in achieving its strategic goals and bringing super-fast broadband to the UK."
