MTN selects Huawei to upgrade Nigerian mobile backhaul network

15 Dec 2016

Huawei has announced that MTN Nigeria has selected its IP radio access network (RAN) solution to fully upgrade its mobile backhaul network, enabling the operator to provide 100Mbps mobile internet access for its customer base. MTN Nigeria, the country’s largest wireless operator by subscribers, has decided to build an experience-driven mobile backhaul network to improve the bandwidth and reduce latency. Huawei’s IP RAN solution uses ATN series routers to form a 10GE access ring and utilises terabit routers to form a 100GE core aggregation layer.

‘We have deep cooperation with Huawei in multiple domains, including fixed network, wireless network, application and software, data centre, cyber security, and management services,’ commented Hassan Elchami, CTO of MTN.
