ICT solutions provider Huawei and Mobily, a leading mobile broadband service provider in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), have announced the activation of the first commercial 400 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) IP core network, designed to bring a more diversified and efficient service experience to telecom customers.
"Rapid development of mobile broadband and video services will generate tremendous traffic growth for backbone networks. Now is the time to apply 400G technology. Huawei is leading the development in 400G technology and fully understands carriers' network reconstruction requirements. Huawei can and will systematically improve network performance, expand bandwidth capacity, and eliminate bottlenecks to help carriers build future-ready backbone networks," said Zha Jun, president of Huawei Fixed Network Business Unit.
Mobily's new 400G capabilities are designed to enable the operator to quickly and easily provide a superior customer experience for video, teleconferencing, machine-to-machine (M2M), and cloud computing services.
"We aim to bring leading-edge technology and infrastructure offerings to our customers," said Nasser Al Nasser, COO, Mobily. "The 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."
