Huawei Supplies IP/MPLS Unified Core Router to Saudi Arabia's Mobily

Huawei Technologies has assisted Mobily, one of the major mobile operators in Saudi Arabia, to deploy an IP/MPLS unified core network. Mobily is a full service operator with wired and wireless broadband data services, but its voice service and data services used to be run through two separate bearer networks. Huawei has supplied six NetEngine 5000E core routers to deploy the nationwide bearer network built on a common IP/MPLS unified core. This paves the way for fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) evolution for Mobily. Financial terms were not disclosed.
