Huawei Supplies Optical Backbone for Magyar Telekom

Magyar Telekom has installed a 2,700 km optical backbone network using gear from Huawei Technologies.

The backbone, which covers all of the country including the capital city Budapest, is based on Huawei's OTN/ASON-based WDM platform and enables Magyar Telekom to migrate from providing traditional voice-oriented services through its previous DWDM system to providing next generation data-oriented services to its customers. Financial terms were not disclosed.

  • Magyar Telekom's majority shareholder (59.2%) is Deutsche Telekom AG. Magyar Telekom holds a majority stake in MakTel, the largest telecom operator of Macedonia and in Crnogorski Telekom, Montenegro's largest telecom operator.
