Huawei has showcased its latest UHD TV solution, streaming 4K video over a Telkom 100Mbps fibre connection.
Telkom installed 100Mbps FTTH connections in the Amber Elite residential complex, delivering enough bandwidth to offer high-quality video streaming services to residents.
Each of the 156 apartments in the Amber Elite building have access to 100Mbps Telkom fibre connection.
Huawei South Africa CEO Steven Wu said the companies plan to make the Amber Elite project a global benchmark for modern connected homes.
“We are looking forward to a continued partnership with Telkom,” said Wu, showcasing Huawei’s 4K video streaming platform at the event.
Jet Liu, Director of Video Solution, Huawei Southern Africa Region, said: “There has been much talk about 4K video and while 4K TV sets have been available in South Africa for a couple of years, content and affordable high speed internet connections have been a barrier to growth.”
“This pilot project is in response to the demand we have witnessed in the South African market, and we want to showcase our commercially ready solution.” says Liu.
Telkom Consumer CEO Attila Vitai said the 100Mbps fibre connection enables high-quality video streaming as well as smart home connectivity, supporting the modern consumer’s need for high-speed connectivity.
