FTTH networks in region ‘set for growth’
Dubai, June 24, 2010
Fiber to the Home (FTTH) networks in the Middle East, fuelled by the region’s growing requirements for faster bandwidth speeds and technology to enable triple play services, are set to be deployed widely, said an expert.
“A high performance fiber network will be the key infrastructure in the future,” said Jean Pierre Labry, managing director of R&M Middle East and Africa, which develops and produces cabling solutions for communications networks.
“Only a robust FTTH infrastructure can offer the speed, security and transmission quality needed to accommodate future bandwidth requirements for triple play in the Middle East,” he added.
Increasingly sophisticated home and building automation features coupled with the uptake of triple play (voice, video, and data) services requires increasing amounts of bandwidth.
Many applications require a pure IP network and bandwidth speeds that cannot be achieved unless deploying a fiber optic network, a statement said.
More robust and secure than copper, fiber and FTTH networks enable data rates ten times greater than the fastest rates achievable to date.
R&M forecasts that FTTH networks will be increasingly deployed in Egypt, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar over the next five years.
“R&M anticipates that FTTH networks will be increasingly deployed and become the standard network infrastructure,” Labry continued.
“Already we are seeing investment by regional network operators and real estate developers into FTTH networks. R&M’s innovative FTTH product range is the optimum solution for applications enabling convenient high speed use for voice, video, data, remote monitoring, and home and building automation.”
“R&M has emerged as the foremost supplier of FTTH network solutions in the Middle East and Africa, particularly in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Our flexibility in terms of customizing solutions, renowned Swiss quality, as well as future proof FTTx portfolio is certainly integral to our success,” concluded Labry. – TradeArabia News Service
