Chinese telecoms equipment maker Huawei has signed a joint-development agreement with Spanish operator Telefónica for the deployment of optical distribution network (ODN) solutions.

The deal, including Huawei’s FastConnect product, will allow Telefónica to improve its fiber to the home (FTTH) service and its fiber deployment process.

Telefónica  said it hoped Huawei’s ODN solutions, such as its outdoor connectivity elements, would improve the efficiency of its deployment which it first launched in 2008. Among the features of the FastConnect solution are "pre-connectorised" drop cables, which support plug and play installation and require no splicing to be carried out at the site. Huawei said its FastConnect solutions can operate in high-humidity environments and amid high and freezing temperatures.

Daniel Paul, Telefónica Spain Access Network Director, said: “The ODN is a fundamental piece of the FTTH deployment. Huawei with its adaptability and plug-and-play ODN solutions, such as FastConnect, has improved our FTTH broadband services, deployment efficiency and helped to implement our project.”

You Yiyong, President of Huawei Access Network product line, added: “The growth of ultra-broadband fixed networks is vigorous worldwide. As a clear example of our commitment to innovation and our focus on customer challenges, we have developed FastConnect solutions which greatly improve FTTH deployment efficiency and strongly support customer strategy in the construction of ultra-broadband networks.”

Huawei launched its first intelligent ODN in 2010 and now has 60 worldwide. No financial details were provided for the deal with Telefónica.
