HGC deploys mobile fronthaul solution in Hong Kong

HGC has deployed Infinera’s mobile fronthaul solution across its optical network in Hong Kong.

The solution claims to allow HGC to provide mobile operators with high capacity active mobile fronthaul services within the Hong Kong region.

The TM-Series Mobile Fronthaul Solution is also said to support HGC and its mobile customers with the growth of 3G and 4G as well as the transition to 5G services.

"We considered the mobile fronthaul solutions in the market and concluded that the Infinera TM-Series solution best enables HGC to deliver massive bandwidth with low latency, while being adaptive to the evolution of mobile technology," said Byron Chiang, CTO at HGC.

The Infinera TM-Series Mobile Fronthaul Solution is said to support all of the Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) and Open Base Station Architecture Initiative (OBSAI) rates, with HGC's initial services in Hong Kong ranging from 2.5Gbps to 10Gbps.
