Huawei Supplies Core Routers for China TieTong

China TieTong, the former China Railway Communication company and now a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Mobile, has selected Huawei as the sole provider for a massive expansion of IP backbone (CTTNET).

Huawei will provide its advanced Quidway NetEngine5000E (NE5000E) core routers for this project. Financial terms were not disclosed.

China TieTong's CTTNET is facing a rapid growth in broadband subscribers and expects 10 million by the end of the year. Traffic on CTTNET is growing between 70 percent and 100 percent each year.

Huawei said its NE5000E was chosen because offers the port density and core scalability needed for this project. In addition, the router' s patented resilient matrix and in-service hardware expansion will enable seamless capacity expansion of router cluster systems.

To date, the global cumulative shipments of Huawei's core router NE5000E and relevant cluster systems have reached over 2,000, including deployments by SingTel, China Telecom, China Mobile, China Unicom, and France Telecom (FT).
