Patrick Wen, Vice President of Huawei Technologies Europe, comments,
“The increase in the number of broadband subscribers has sped up the integration of telecom network and IP network, putting the telecom industry under much pressure to transform their networks. The IP network is being transformed from bearing single Internet services to multiple services, for example voice, data, video, 3G and NGN services. It has become clear that few operators are able to handle the business potential the IP network can now offer due to the shortage of practical network transformation solutions. The launch of Huawei’s Quidway ME60 MSCG solution will enable our customers to transform their IP networks to gain immediate advantage over their competitors.”
