Huawei Supplies Core Routers to Saudi Arabia's Mobily - 400G Line Cards

Mobily, a leading mobile broadband service provider in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), activated a new IP core based on the Huawei NE5000E core router.

Huawei said the deployment represents the first commercial installation of 400 Gbps linecards, which support flexible networking of 100GE ports, 40GE ports, and 10GE ports. In addition, power consumption of the 400G line card is within 1 W/G.

Mobily's new 400G IP core capabilities will support its UMTS/LTE, video, teleconferencing, machine-to-machine (M2M), and cloud computing services.

"We aim to bring leading-edge technology and infrastructure offerings to our customers," said Mr. Nasser AL Nasser, Chief Operation Officer, Mobily. "The new 400G IP core provides excellent performance and scalability, and will allow Mobily to continue to develop its services over the coming years."

"We are pleased to join Mobily in deploying the world’s first 400G IP core network," said Zha Jun, president of Huawei Fixed Network Business Unit. "Rapid development of mobile broadband and video services will generate tremendous traffic growth for backbone networks. 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 improve network performance, expand bandwidth capacity, and eliminate bandwidth bottlenecks to help carriers build future-ready backbone networks."

As a leader in global IP technologies, Huawei carrier IP products and solutions are serving China Telecom, China Mobile, China Unicom, and other world-wide leading carriers such as Orange S.A, Telefonica, and SingTel. According to data from Ovum, Huawei had the highest growth rate in the global IP market in Q1 of 2013.

In September 2012, Huawei unveiled the industry's first and highest-capacity 480 Gbps router line card, enabling a capacity of 15.4 Tbps for its high-end core router with 48x10GE, 12x40GE, or 4x100GE line-rate forwarding per slot.  Huawei will offer various daughter cards with 10GE/40GE/100GE ports for flexible configuration.
Huawei said the capacity is achieved using its third-generation programmable, custom Solar 3.0 ASICs with Smart Memory and Intelligent Frequency Adjustment (IFA) technologies. The company said it is able to achieve a record-low energy use of 0.71 W/g for the line card.
