On "2014 Optical Communication Technology and Development Forum" held recently, Wuhan Academy of Post and Telecommunications, former vice president and chief engineer Mao Qian said at the end of last year, the global FTTH subscribers reached 128 million, China had 40.82 million.
As of the end of July 2014, China's fiber access FTTH / O ports reached 135 million, fiber access FTTH / O total number of subscribers reached 55.163 million. A net increase of 14.343 million over the end of 2013, twice the number of users in Japan. In 2013 the amount of about 254 million worldwide fiber core km, the cumulative amount of the fiber core has more than two billion miles. In the last year, the amount of the fiber core is about 147 million km, has been laying fiber optic cable lengths up to 17.45 million kilometers, the total amount of fiber have been laid over 750 million core km; as of the end of June 2014, China's cable lengths up to 18.84 million kilometers.
The first half of 2014, the line length of the cable added 1.38 million km. Where the length of the new cable line access network 567,000 kilometers, 797,000 kilometers of new fiber optic metropolitan area, while long-haul fiber optic cable by only 23,000 kilometers.
Comments: The data on the development of a set of optical communications Mao Qian compelling disclosure. People learned from here, our fiber access FTTH / O ports reached 135 million, fiber access FTTH / O total number of subscribers reached 55.163 million; the amount of the fiber core is about 147 million kilometers, more than half of the global amount; in among the new fiber-optic cables, access, metro fiber optic amount more, but the amount of long-haul fiber optic cable less, which indicates that the current focus of the construction of fiber-optic cables, mainly in metro and access networks. From these data, the overall broadband strategy is steadily push forward China, the number of FTTH growth is good. Although mobile broadband is currently focused on the construction of the three operators, but the pace of the development of fixed-line broadband has not slowed down significantly. Infrastructure construction, will further promote broadband information consumption, and promote the upgrading of the network. On this basis, devices and applications will be developed in sync, bringing new prosperity information and communication market.
