Huawei FTTM Solution for Smart Manufacturing

Currently, traditional networks of manufacturing factories suffer from complex network cabling, harsh workshop environment, poor network reliability, and difficult network evolution. These hold back factories from going smart and digital.

Huawei's fiber to the machine (FTTM) solution for smart manufacturing uses the passive optical network technology to carry factory production, office, and security services on one optical network. The solution features a simplified two-layer network architecture, high security and reliability, flexible expansion, and simplified O&M.

Using Huawei's FTTM solution, customers can build networks that feature low costs, energy saving, easy management and maintenance, and flexible capacity expansion.
