DTAC selects Huawei for NE5000E 400G core routers
Sep 06, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Huawei, a provider of information and communications technology solutions, has announced that it will provide NE5000E 400G core routers for Total Access Communication Public Company Limited, or DTAC, a mobile service provider, to upgrade its internet core equipment on the core network.
Huawei's NE5000E core routers reportedly simplify DTAC's backbone networks, upgrade the existing 40G equipment to 400G, and implement networking between 100GE and 10GE by changing subboards, thereby protecting investments. In addition, the 400G platform of Huawei's NE5000E core router has the capability to expand slot capacity to the T level to meet carriers' future service requirements. Power consumption of the 400G platform is within 1 W/G, keeping energy and investment costs low.
Gai Gang, president of Huawei's Carrier IP Product Line explained that "Rapid development of UMTS broadband and video services will generate tremendous traffic growth on backbone networks. Existing network architectures need to be upgraded. 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 simplify network architectures and improve network performance and capacity to help carriers build future-proof backbone networks."
