Jazztel to deploy first 400G IP network in Western Europe

Jazztel, a fixed network operator in Spain today to deploy Western Europe’s first 400G IP backbone network.

Jazztel will use the Huawei NE5000E 400G core router to construct IP backbone networks providing more and better services for millions of fixed network users in Spain.

As the telecom market, and especially the FTTH market, is booming in Spain, multimedia services are growing and data flows are multiplying, which is challenging the performance and expansibility of IP backbone networks and undermining user experience. Jazztel needs to upgrade the capacity of its IP backbone networks and improve network efficiency.

As the world’s first commercially available 400G core router, the Huawei NE5000E 400G core router allows flexible subcards to be removed and re-installed, and supports flexible combinations of 100GE, 40GE, and 10GE boards, boasting a smooth extension to Tbps level capability for each slot.

The Huawei NE5000E core router will help Jazztel to optimize the network architecture and make it more flexible, reduce the bandwidth cost of each bit and improve user satisfaction.

With the Huawei NE5000E core router, Jazztel will stand out in the market for the next five-year fixed network services and make swift progress in future-oriented network evolution.

“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, 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,” added Gang.
