Vodafone Spain has announced plans for a change in the network architecture of its Ono cable network and the deployment of DOCSIS 3.1.
The contract, awarded to the Chinese manufacturer Huawei, has been valued at €100 million.
In a statement, Vodafone said the contract went beyond an update of the network to DOCSIS 3.1 as it also involved a new architecture based on the deployment of extension points of the fibre network and the increase of available bandwidth for each Client.
Customers will benefit from symmetrical speeds greater than 1 Gbps and download speeds of up to 10 Gbps.
As well as expanding data capabilities it will also enable the introduction of 4K TV services.
Ono, which was acquired by Vodafone in July 2014 for €7.2 billion euros, now represents the bulk of Vodafone’s fixed line business in Spain.
