China Mobile has partnered with Nokia to extend ultra-broadband access and intelligent home services across 29 different provinces in China.

The project will see the two firms deploy millions of home gateway solutions to 30 million residential customers across China in 2017, providing them access to fibre-based ultra-broadband applications and services.

The service will utilise existing fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) networks, bringing greater service experiences and gigabit speeds to customers, while also enabling Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to be deployed.

Federico Guillén, president of Nokia's fixed networks business group, said: "This important announcement furthers Nokia's role as a key technology provider in China. 

“Our home gateway solution provides China Mobile with the ultra-broadband access technology they need to capitalize on IoT and deliver new services that support their evolving customer needs. We are very pleased to continue our close work with China Mobile and look forward to helping them deliver on their commitments."
