Metro’s fronthaul equipment passed the acceptance check of Unicom, and the new OLT and ONU product functions continued to be optimized to meet the operator’s network reconstruction needs.
In terms of fiber optic cables, the price of mobile common fiber optic cables in March this year was cut, which brought tremendous pressure to fiber optic cable manufacturers.
Leading companies such as Fire can compress costs through self-produced light rods, and the relative length affected by the distortion.
In the second half of the year, the industry will gradually return to rationality.
