2009 is going to be a year of fiber network boom in Pakistan. Digital Solution is to become the distributor of Aspen Optics. To support the construction of a massive fiber optic infrastructure in Pakistan, Digital Solution will introduce fiber connectivity products from Aspen Optics, including media converters, fiber switches and next generation optical transceivers.

Ranking as the world's 6th largest, Pakistan has a population of 165 million, an urban ratio of 32.5% and average household size of 6.8 people. This represents a huge market for FTTX (Fiber to the Home/Premise/Business).

The huge infrastructures of fiber network in Pakistan are expanding in full swing. Mobilink, TWA, Nayatel, Multinet, Wateen Telecom, Brain Tel and PTCL are active in fiber network advancement. Mobilink is having a fiber optic backbone of 8, 500 km. TWA, a submarine fiber optic cable operator, specializing in end-to-end international connectivity, also constructed backbone fiber for Mobilink for domestic connectivity. Nayatel had introduced Pakistan's first Fiber-To-The-User (FTTU) network with advanced Next Generation Network (NGN) capability, offering data, voice and multimedia services in Islamabad. Multinet with over 4,500 km DWDM backbone is connecting fiber to 107 cities in Pakistan up to 100mbps. Wateen laid 5,500 km backbone network and Metro Rings providing Triple Play (Data, Voice, Video) services in most major cities. Brain Tel offers Quadplay (Data, Voice, Video & Surveillance) in Lahore. PTCL started an exclusive FTTC (Fibre-to-the-curb) phone connections last year.
