This brings a more diversified and smooth service experience to millions of 3G, LTE and FTTH users, and is further testament to Mobily’s leadership, infrastructure and Huawei's leading capability with 400G router line card, and its ability to assist carriers implement future-ready networks, said Nasser Al Nasser, chief operations officer at Mobily.
“We aim at bringing leading edge technology and infrastructure offerings to our customers,” he added.
“400G IP Core keeps pace with Mobily's service development largely because of sufficient performance and scalability, and ensures positive performance in the coming years.”
Huawei’s core router NE5000E supports flexible networking of 100GE ports, 40GE ports, and 10GE ports to provide a 400G capacity, and can be smoothly evolved to provide a Terabit-level capacity for the backbone network. In addition, power consumption of the 400G line card is within 1 W/G, keeping energy and investment costs low.
"We are pleased to join Mobily in deploying the first 400G IP core network in the world,” said Zha Jun, president of Huawei's Network Product Line.
