Hutchison Global Communications (HGC), the fixed-line division of Hutchison Telecommunications Hong Kong Holdings, announced the deployment of the Infinera TM-Series Mobile Fronthaul Solution across HGC’s optical network in Hong Kong. HGC owns an extensive fiber-optic network in Hong Kong and provides a broad set of communications services. The deployment of the solution will allow HGC to provide mobile operators with high capacity active mobile fronthaul services within the Hong Kong region.

According to Infinera, the rapid deployment of 3G and 4G, along with the unrelenting growth of video, social media and cloud applications accessed via smart phones and tablets, is creating the need for more bandwidth to the cell tower. Mobile operators like HGC’s sister company 3 Hong Kong are transforming their networks by driving fiber to the cell tower and moving to a centralized or cloud-RAN (Radio Access Network) architecture using Infinera’s TM-Series Mobile Fronthaul Solution. 

Byron Chiang, Chief Technology Officer of HGC
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.

Andrew Bond-Webster, Vice President, regional sales APAC
With this deployment HGC has transformed its mobile transport architecture and positioned themselves and their customers to effectively manage the tremendous growth of mobile data that should continue for the next several years.
