China-based telecom equipment manufacturer ZTE has bagged an internet protocol television (IPTV) and fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) deal from Fastway Transmissions, a multiple system operator (MSO) in North India. The MSO offers broadband services in 163 cities in North India through its Netplus brand.
Under the partnership, ZTE is providing its XGPON platform to the broadband provider. The partnership would facilitate network upgrade for offering speeds up to 1Gbps in the broadband segment alongside providing IPTV and many smart home solutions to the users.
According to the two companies, the partnership would enable Netplus Broadband to offer FTTH broadband services, IPTV, over-the-top (OTT) and voice services along with smart home solutions. However, these services will be available in states of North India only.
