Huawei has launched a new solution that will enhance both fixed line and mobile data connectivity.

The Ubiquitous Ultra-broadband Network Architecture (U2Net) will increase the capacity of existing bandwidth connections from transmitters to consumers making the transfer of data faster.

According to Song Peng, vice-president of Huawei in East & Southern Africa Region and CEO of Huawei South Africa, this is a solution that network providers have long been waiting for in order to address current capacity issues where broadband is concerned.

Consumers will now have increased access to IP telephone services and quality high-definition television (HDTV) and videoconferencing.

Network operators are under increasing pressure to unlock bottlenecks and deliver ever faster and more reliable internet. Huawei’s U2Net solution will increase bandwidth capacity from transmitters to end users.

“We believe our U2Net solution will deliver value for all our stakeholders, and play an enabling role in driving economic growth throughout South Africa,” says Peng.

“Huawei is committed to delivering a world-class solution which will make it easier for our customers to access the technology they need. We are embracing government’s 2020 ICT vision of delivering 100% broadband, throughout South Africa, by 2020.

Networks of the future will have to provide huge capacity, with simplified architecture, as traffic is constantly increasing. Global broadband connections are predicted to grow to 7-billion by 2015.

“Today’s networks are evolving to accommodate increased traffic and data services, but traditional architecture has struggled to keep up. With U2Net, Huawei is delivering the network solution of the future,” says Peng.

Huawei’s U2Net solution will deliver 100Mbps fixed broadband to homes and between 10Mbps and 20Mbps to individual mobile users. Other benefits of the service include greater reliability for end users.
