BT is investing £2.5bn so that 66% of the UK population can use its next generation internet access services by 2015. Presently this roll-out has been dominated by 'up to' 40Mb Fibre-to-the-Cabinet ( FTTC ) technology and will soon be joined by BT's 100Mb Fibre-to-the-Premises ( FTTH / P ) service.

Steve Robertson, BT Openreach's CEO, said:

"BT and Huawei have had a strong relationship for several years; we are pleased to extend this further by choosing Huawei as one of our strategic partners to help us deploy Next Generation Access on a national scale as part of BT' s £2.5bn investment in fibre technology.

Huawei' s cutting-edge optical access and transmission technology will provide our CP customers with the ability to offer more diversified high-bandwidth services and an improved broadband experience to their customers."

Chengdong Yu, president of Huawei Europe, added:

"We are proud to contribute to the construction of BT' s pan-UK fibre deployment. 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."

BT and Huawei have been working together on FTTC solutions since 2008. The new deal will make use of Huawei's SingleFAN (fibre access network) solution, which uses an "open and unified platform" and should help BT to cut its operation and maintenance costs. The kit is also designed to support future multi-play services, such as bundled IPTV products, possibly even at the wholesale level.
