Malaysia's Maxis Selects Huawei for FTTH

Malaysia's Maxis Berhad awarded a contract to Huawei to supply its Next-Generation High-Speed Internet network, including the building and managing of a full-service FTTx network using GPON technologies.

Under the deal, which was signed last week in Kuala Lumpur, Huawei will deliver an end-to-end turnkey services package that includes active and passive equipment, holistic ODN (Optical Distribution Network) designs, and construction management for Maxis' Next-Generation High-Speed Internet network. The project will link homes in Klang Valley, Penang and Johor Bahru using FTTH. In addition to designing and building the active network infrastructure, Huawei will also manage the FTTH network for three years. Financial terms were not disclosed.
