Huawei will provide its NE5000E 400G core routers for Total Access Communication Public Company Limited (DTAC), a large-scale mobile service provider in Thailand. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huawei said its NE5000E core routers 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.
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. "
