Thai home fibre internet provider True Online, working with ZTE, has launched Thailand’s first 50G PON prototype in Bangkok’s Grand Fortune Hotel. True says the release will support the industrial development of Thailand 4.0, and help Thai people enjoy the dividend of digital economy.

The 50G PON prototype tested at the launch event was based on verification of key performance parameters including ultra-wide transmission rates of 43.90 Gbps downlink and 23.30 Gbps uplink, and can support 10 Gbps access.

In addition to providing ultra-broadband access for families, 50G PON can also support services such as 5G, Cloud VR, Telehealth and intelligent industrial manufacturing for high bandwidth, low latency, jitter and clock synchronisation requirements.

Speaking at the launch, Dylan Jin, account director of ZTE Thailand, said that the gigabits home broadband service is currently widely used in Thailand and the basic fixed network is evolving from GPON to 10G PON. He added that True Online has continuously developed services to increase efficiency and expand fibre network, and 50G PON services will further expand these processes, enabling the launch of further innovative devices, products and services to meet growing consumer demand.
