Ding Yun, President of Huawei Network Product Line: To meet the convergence needs on bearer networks, Huawei has rolled out the Single Metro solution. It taps into the traffic potential based on a low-cost IP network to help operators deliver a new business model, create a new profit stream and boost ROI.

Experts' Forum

The new SDP that will serve all 13 countries in Telefonica's Latin America region is one of the largest of its kind in terms of scale and complexity. After only 6 months counted since the work started, the first two services, WAP and messaging, have been launched.

Richard Přibyl, Senior Head of Packet Core Network Planning for Deutsche Telekom: We need to substantially decrease our network costs in order to provide mass market data service over mobile access. We believe that new technologies will provide us opprotunities to get there.

Cover Story

Opportunities coexist with challenges and it is a full time job to remain competitive. However, Reliance makes it look easy, consistently delivering abundant high-quality services to customers and becoming the largest privately owned full-service operator in the hotly contested Indian telecom market.

Main Topic

Reliability of high speed Internet (HSI) service is determined by the equipment, network and service. The trick is to strike a profitable balance between reliability and cost effectiveness. To implement HSI service hot backup with low costs, operators have proposed the BRAS pool solution.

Flawless clock synchronization is required to build an FMC-oriented IP bearer network. To meet this need, IEEE 1588v2 has attracted attention industry-wide as the Ethernet technology offering the most precise synchronization capability.

How to Operate

n order to guarantee a flawless user experience, IPTV-based video services require an MAN with high-grade bearer capabilities including transmission bandwidth, control, continuity, and stability.

To guarantee increasing profits in the mobile Internet era and find the “blue ocean”, telecom operators can create market-oriented charging policies for different services and user groups based on different service combinations.

Given the surgeoning P2P traffic, operators can free themselves from the P2P puzzle by dredging P2P traffic, reducing network expansion costs, and improving the coupling capacity between network and applications.


Mr. Richard Xue, Marketing Director of Huawei Network Product Line, shared his thoughts about future mobile services and IPv6 network development trends with COMMUNICATE.

Media Insight

Many questions about IPv6 linger, but it becoming indispensable to newly built networks and a migration strategy has been gradually clarified thanks to the joint efforts of operators and equipment suppliers.


Mobile operators are moving into the fixed field in the quest for full service operation. A fine IP-based Metro Ethernet can help them consolidate and bear high value mobile services, fixed broadband services, enterprise VPNs, as well as other services.

Telecom industry, as a major energy consumer, should do its part in saving energy and reducing emissions. Doing so will help save the environment, spur technical innovations and reduce TCO.

Economic recession is impacting the telecom industry which has started suffering diminished profits. At a time that is replete with emerging services, how can operators respond to the raised requirements on network bearer capability?

Leading Edge

Unlike routing devices, network security (NS) devices do not just forward data packets; they also check the status, security, and integrity of data streams. This complicates data processing, and necessitates ultra-high NS device performance to assure 10G network security.

Ovum predicts that enterprise private line services will increase steadily. The Ethernet private line service is growing at the fastest rate, from 9.8 billion USD in 2006 to a projected revenue of 31 billion USD in 2012, with the CAGR as high as 21.3%.
