Huawei to Roll out 100G Backbone for Polkomtel
Polish wireless operator Polkomtel, which offers services under the ‘Plus’ brand name, has selected Huawei to deploy a 100Gbps backbone network, incorporating its SingleBackbone solution.
Polkomtel has embarked on the project to prevent potential bandwidth congestion in relation to its ongoing deployment of Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology. Huawei’s solution enables high bandwidth and efficient multi-service transport, allowing Polkomtel’s network to simultaneously carry mobile and fixed network services. The SingleBackbone solution provides high bandwidth and simplified network operations and management through IP and optical transport network (OTN) synergy. Kevin Hu, Huawei’s VP in charge of solutions and marketing in the Nordic region noted that: ‘IP and OTN synergy will build future-proof backbone networks. The synergy between IP and OTN helps operators excel in the ultra broadband era with more efficient traffic distribution, more reliable network protection and easier-to-maintain backbone networks.’
