True selects Huawei’s 400G core network solution

6 Aug 2013

Thai quadruple-play operator True Corp has selected China’s Huawei Technologies to supply core router line cards for the deployment of a 400Gbps-capable IP core network to serve its 3G/4G mobile subscribers. According to a press release from the Chinese vendor, 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 T-level capacity for the backbone network. In addition, tests indicate that the energy efficiency ratio of Huawei 400G line cards is less than 1W/G, meaning that carriers can deploy energy-saving networks with larger capacities with less investment. Gai Gang, president of Huawei’s Carrier IP division, said: ‘Traffic on the backbone network increases explosively as mobile broadband services and video services develop dramatically. It’s time for the 400G technology to apply to live networks. Huawei provides solutions that facilitate network capacity expansion and remove bandwidth bottlenecks, helping carriers construct future-oriented backbone networks.’
