FTTR All-optical Wi-Fi Solution: bringing 5 million+ users an entirely new internet experience
CMHK continues to collaborate with a broad spectrum of leading sectoral innovators to engage in strategic cooperation, with the aim of unlocking the full potential of 5G. CMHK recently partnered with BExcellent Group to establish "Sync-Class Pro," a digital learning norm leveraging technology to create a smart learning environment, and partnered SenseTime to exploit the capabilities of "5G+AI" to provide customers with more innovative 5G services, paving the way into a new era of connectivity and smart living.

CMHK's new generation of smart networking FTTR technology is supported by the launch of the All-optical Wi-Fi Solution, directly extending optical fiber connections to every corner of the house.

Working together, interconnectivity at more than 1000Mbps is achieved with coverage that spans every centimeter of the home. The All-optical Wi-Fi Solution provides ultimate connection stability coupled with intelligent network management through an easily configurable app. The innovation even uses artificial intelligence to automatically identify network issues and perform remote automatic repair.
