ZTE Corporation, a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, has completed the first commercial 10G PON full-service test for Spanish operator Jazztel. The GPON and 10G PON co-existence test demonstrated that ZTE's 10G PON solution is both backward and forward compatible and capable of supporting any service under all foreseeable scenarios.

The 10G PON network was commercially tested using ITU-T G.987-compliant test schemes, which testify to GPON's clear superiority in various scenarios especially for cloud-based enterprise services, video services and VoIP Centrex services.

"Jazztel needs to constantly innovate in order to provide our customers with the best possible service and ensure our competitiveness. The ZTE xGPON solution enables the expansion of our FTTH network capabilities in an effective manner," said José Miguel Garcia Fernández, Chief Executive Officer of Jazztel.

"We are delighted to have collaborated with Jazztel in completing the first 10G PON full-service commercial network test in Spain. Our 10G PON solution will enable carriers to simplify their networks, improve broadband efficiency and meet the ever increasing demand for ultra-high broadband to pave the way for revenue generation with tiered service categories. We are committed to working with carriers and other stakeholders to advance the proliferation of 10G PON applications," said Xiao Ming, vice president of ZTE Corporation.

Jazztel selected ZTE to build a national high-speed broadband FTTH network in November 2012 and the network began commercial operation in October, 2013. ZTE provided Jazztel with an end-to-end turnkey solution that includes a full range of services including equipment, engineering and maintenance.

ZTE's FTTx products and solutions, which offer end users new high-speed Internet and fixed-mobile convergence services, while catering to various scenarios with the same platform, effectively protect carrier investments and shorten time to market at the same time.
