“This is a significant agreement with a longstanding collaborator,” said Mike Wang, president at Nokia Networks Greater China. “We are committed to delivering technologies that allow operators to smoothly transit to intelligent, virtual networks and seamless connectivity, to change how people communicate and connect.”
Another memorandum of confirmation signed with Huawei and Wuhan FiberHome focuses on plans to build a fiber infrastructure to support Globe’s rollout of fixed broadband lines in households.
Globe aims to deploy fiber optics to 20,000 barangays by 2020 and provide ultra-fast internet access to around 2 million homes nationwide.
Huawei CEO Kevin Gao said through this cooperation, “we hope to provide high quality products and professional services and work with our Philippine partners to bring a better connected service to this country.”
“We believe that FiberHome’s expertise in telecommunications over the last 40 years will be of great value to Globe Telecom’s infrastructure build,” said Wuhan FiberHome International Technologies President Zhiqiang Fan.
