Telecom Egypt has selected network solutions provider Huawei to install dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) technology to enable multiple video, audio, and data channels to be transmitted over one fibre.

The technology will increase the efficiency and bandwidth of Egypt’s largest telecommunications company’s networks by supporting different formats.

The three-year contract is also expected to increase the capacity of Telecom Egypt’s Cairo network and reduce operating costs while increasing quality of service.

“The decision to evolve our network is significant and is the result of in-depth research and analysis. Huawei offers industry leading transmission network architecture with its DWDM technology and enables us to give our customers access to new, advanced services while enhancing the security and quality of existing services,” said Dawlat El Badawi, planning vice chairman at Telecom Egypt.

El Badawi said the emerging demand for advanced, higher-quality communications had created a “paradigm-shifting” challenge to telephone operators.

“Originally designed to carry circuit-switched voice traffic, existing networks now need to carry heavy data loads, deliver streaming video, and provide internet access to a rapidly growing user base,” he claimed.

Huawei said it was devoted to bringing value-added solutions in network programming, technology innovation, and customised solutions to telecom operators globally.

“We are very proud to work with Telecom Egypt to plan and implement the first DWDM national backbone network in the country,” said Thomas Zhu, managing director of Huawei in Egypt.
