Huawei released its new flagship GPON ONT, the Huawei EchoLife K5 Pro, which complies with the latest TR-398 Wi-Fi performance test standard released by the Broadband Forum (BBF).

The Huawei EchoLife K5 Pro fully supports GPON FTTH network deployment, helping operators deliver a premium home Wi-Fi experience. This flagship device delivers a carrier-class Wi-Fi service to users, providing a smooth, high-speed Wi-Fi experience, full coverage in homes and the ultimate ultra-HD video experience.

In large apartments and houses, although the access bandwidth can be as high as 100 Mbps, common Wi-Fi devices are unable to provide whole-home coverage. This results in poor performance and service experience, especially as new services such as 4K/8K video, online games, and IoT become more popular. Existing home networks struggle to realize the high-speed experience required in many home network service scenarios.

The EchoLife K5 Pro is designed to resolve many of the issues found on Wi-Fi networks for smooth playback of 4K videos, such as signal conflicts, severe interference, poor coverage, and low throughput, which negatively affect home user experience, says Huawei.
