It is understood that Telefonica has selected Huawei’s customised ODN solutions for its FTTH network, such as outdoor connectivity elements, which will reportedly improve the efficiency of the deployment. Commenting on the deal, Daniel Paul, Telefonica Spain Access Network Director, noted: ‘The ODN is a fundamental piece of the FTTH deployment.
