Besides, Huawei also actively participates in the international standardization and has already contributed many drafts. For example, Huawei takes the major positions, such as president, board member, and main editor, in key PON standards organizations, including, ITU-T, IEEE, and BBF. In these positions, Huawei made significant contributions to the standardization of 10G PON, TWDM PON, and WDM PON.

In 2007, Huawei released an ONT chip with proprietary intellectual property rights and deployed the world's first commercial large-scale FTTH network in United Arab Emirates. In 2008, Huawei and Verizon (America) jointly carried out the world's first 10G PON test. In 2009, Huawei became the first vendor that deployed over 1 million FTTH terminals.
