Huawei to Build 40G National Network

Huawei Awarded Contract to Build 40G National Backbone Network for China Mobile

[Shenzhen, China, 30 November, 2010] Huawei, a leader in providing next-generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, today announced that it has been selected as the provider to build an 80×40G WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) national backbone network for China Mobile. Upon its completion, the network wavelength capacity will be upgraded from 10G to 40G, which will enable China Mobile to offer more ultra-broadband services and bring an enriched service experience to its subscribers.

China Mobile’s significant investments in 3G and broadband have resulted in an increase in service traffic that has strained its legacy 10G backbone network nearly to the point of capacity. In response to this, China Mobile issued a call for bids in June 2010 for its Shanghai-Nanjing-Hangzhou 40G national backbone network project. This project is the first trial of an OTN (optical transport network) national backbone network in China and it covers core areas in the Yangtze River delta, including Shanghai, Nanjing, and Hangzhou.

“Huawei’s industry-leading 40G solution and our experience in deploying 40G networks have enabled us to become the leader in the global optical transport industry and the global 40G industry,” said Christian Chua, president, Transport Network Product Line, Huawei. “Our 40G OTN solution will enable China Mobile to meet the growing service demands on its network so that its subscribers can enjoy an unmatched service experience.”

Huawei’s 40G OTN solution incorporates industry-leading technologies, such as ultra-high 40G bandwidth per wavelength, an ultra-large OTN capacity, and an OTN bandwidth pool, which enables the quick deployment of networks and the flexible and efficient provisioning of services. Huawei’s solution features an ODUk-SNCP protection mechanism that works at the electrical layer to dramatically enhance network reliability.

Huawei provides operators around the world with premium WDM/OTN, MSTP (multi-service transport platform)/Hybrid MSTP, microwave series products, as well as end-to-end transport solutions. According to a report released last month by the consulting firm Ovum, Huawei currently holds the top position in the global optical transport market and is also ranked number one in the global WDM/OTN and 40G market segments.
