Niche Player: FiberHome Telecommunications Technologies
Chinese-based FiberHome ranks in last place for both vision and execution on the Magic Quadrant. Following FiberHome’s merger with Datang Telecom Group, the company focuses on communication technology in broadband construction, 3G/4G/5G and information security. In the mobile infrastructure business, FiberHome offers end-to-end solutions for TD-LTE networks and 5G, including core, radio access and optical transport.
Strengths: FiberHome’s leading position in the Chinese optical communications market and close relationships with domestic CSPs can be leveraged to stay relevant in the 5G market, Gartner said.
Weaknesses: FiberHome does not have a comprehensive 5G infrastructure product portfolio or system integration capabilities compared with leading 5G vendors. The company doesn’t have a strong global expansion strategy and lacks awareness outside China.
