e& UAE Leads 50G PON Technology Adoption with Live Network Deployment

News Desk -


e& UAE has achieved a significant milestone by successfully deploying 50G PON (50-Gigabit-capable passive optical networks) technology in its live network infrastructure.

50G PON technology represents a substantial advancement from previous GPON and XGS-PON technologies, pivotal in global broadband service delivery. It promises internet speeds of up to 50 Gigabits per second (Gbps), facilitating rapid streaming of high-definition videos, accelerated downloads and uploads, and enhanced online responsiveness. This technological leap supports the burgeoning array of smart devices in homes, ensuring uninterrupted connectivity for smart TVs and connected appliances.

Marwan Bin Shakar, Senior Vice President Access Network Development at e& UAE, expressed, “At e&, our commitment lies in evolving to meet the escalating demands for faster, more reliable connectivity. The deployment of 50G PON technology underscores our leadership in transforming network infrastructure and preparing for the future.”

e& UAE’s introduction of 50G PON marks a pioneering initiative globally, reinforcing the UAE’s prominence in telecommunications and connectivity. While many markets are still adopting 10G PON or transitioning to 50G PON, this live network deployment positions the UAE at the forefront.

“In an era of hyper-connectivity and digital transformation, 50G PON technology represents not just an upgrade but a revolution,” added Bin Shakar. “It redefines the possibilities of fiber optic communication, unlocking ultra-high-speed internet access across all sectors and driving global innovation.”

The benefits of 50G PON technology extend to consumers, ensuring seamless streaming of high-resolution content, faster data transfers, and enhanced online experiences. For businesses, it supports bandwidth-intensive applications such as video conferencing, remote collaboration, and data backups, thereby enhancing operational efficiency.

This deployment underscores e& UAE’s commitment to advancing technological boundaries and empowering digital connectivity across the UAE and beyond.
