The FTTB network deploys Huawei’s MDU (multi-dwelling unit) products MA5651G/MA5652G, offering consumers high-speed broadband access based on latest VDSL2 technology by utilizing chipset from German supplier.

Huawei claims that with its FTTB solution, HanseNet’s high-speed network can support data rate up to 100Mbps per user and an upload of up to 10Mbps per user and an upload of up to 10Mbps per user.

Thanks to Huawei’s deep understanding and expertise. We believe that our FTTB network can enable our customers to enjoy rich services via ubiquitous broadband.
