Orange Bids to Acquire Jazztel of Spain

Orange launched a public bid to acquire Jazztel, a network operator offering broadband and triple play services in Spain.  The offer of 13 euros per share in cash represents a premium of 34% compared to where the stock has been trading. The price of 100% of Jazztel’s capital amounts to 3.4 billion euros.

Orange said the acquisition would make it the second biggest fixed-line broadband operator and one of the most dynamic players in the mobile segment in Spain. Orange estimates synergies for the combined entity of up to 1.3 billion euros, in particular thanks to savings in operational expenditure and investments in networks.

Spain's Jazztel to Deploy Huawei's 400G Core Router

Spain's Jazztel will be the first operator in Western Europe to deploy the Huawei NE5000E 400G core router.  The Huawei NE5000E core router allows 400 Gbps linecards, which support flexible networking of 100GE ports, 40GE ports, and 10GE ports. Financial terms were not disclosed.

"The burgeoning mobile bandwidth services and video services are spurring the growth of backbone network traffic and present an opportunity for the 400G technology in the lab to make its debut on a live network," said Gai Gang, president of Huawei Carrier IP Product Line. "After years of comprehensive research on operators' needs for network reconstruction, Huawei is now playing a leading role in 400G platform design. With the 400G platform technology, Huawei aims to simplify operators' network architecture, improve device performance and capacity, and construct sustainable IP backbone networks."
