Tata Deploys Huawei's Mobile Softswitch in Mumbai

Tata Teleservices (Maharashtra) has deployed Huawei's MSC Pool solution in Mumbai to improve the performance, reliability and disaster resilience of network. The solution transformed three existing sets of CDMA mobile softswitches into one MSC Pool without having to make any modifications to other parts of the network.

In addition to gains in reliability, Huawei said its operator-controllable load balancing addresses the problem of unevenly distributed traffic loads in geographical areas, adjusting the ratio of subscriber quantity to traffic volume between the three MSC. This approach can reduce total network capacity demands by up to 20% and significantly reduce CAPEX.

Tata serves 1.5 million mobile subscribers in Mumbai.
