Chunghwa Telecom, Taiwan’s premier telecommunications company, has joined forces with Fujitsu Corporation, embarking on a two-year strategic endeavor to spearhead the development of all-optical network (APN) technology in Taiwan. This initiative, anchored by a memorandum of cooperation signed on January 31, is set to harness the Innovative Optical and Wireless Network (IOWN) technology, marking a significant leap towards crafting a sustainable and innovative telecommunications infrastructure.

This partnership is poised to employ IOWN’s cutting-edge all-optical network technology, aiming to establish a network paradigm characterized by high capacity, minimal latency, and reduced power consumption.
