Huawei says it has received a contract from Spanish telecom service provider Jazztel to supply its NE5000E 400G core router within the carrier’s national network. This is the system house’s first Western European customer for the NE5000E.

Jazztel is upgrading the capacity of its backbone network to meet new traffic demands from multimedia and data services, particularly as FTTH takes off, Huawei says. This scenario is becoming increasingly typical, the systems vendor adds.

"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."

Huawei asserts the NE5000E core router will help Jazztel optimize the network architecture to make it more flexible, reduce the bandwidth cost of each bit, and improve user satisfaction. Use of the core router also will save energy and reduce operational expenditures, the company adds.
