SINGAPORE -- Huawei, a leader in providing next-generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, has been awarded the end-to-end network solution contract by Nucleus Connect to develop Singapore's Next Generation Nationwide Broadband Network (Next Gen NBN), a nation-wide ultra-high-speed broadband network service to deliver bandwidth services ranging from 100Mbps to 1Gbps to residential users and business users.

Under this appointment, Huawei has been awarded a seven year contract to provide the end-to-end full turn-key active network solution and professional EOT (Establish, Operate, Transfer) services for the entire Next Gen NBN. The offering includes 80-Tbps IP core Clustering Router, Next Generation DWDM optical transmission, Aggregation Service Router, Terabit GPON access platform, Carrier Ethernet Switch, Multi-service ONTs and the Unified network management system for the entire active network.

Mr. David Storrie, CEO of Nucleus Connect said, "Nucleus Connect is committed to offering world-class leading edge services across the Next Gen NBN. With the appointment of Huawei, Nucleus Connect is confident that the state-of-the-art active network infrastructure will enable the delivery of a comprehensive range of service offerings to our customers today and in the future. In addition, the partnership with Huawei will allow us to deploy the network in a timely and efficient manner to meet the stringent project milestones set out by the IDA."

"We are delighted to partner Nucleus Connect to build the world' s first Open Access Next Gen NBN," said Mr. Ding Yun, President of Network Product Line, Huawei, "Huawei is committed to leveraging its proven expertise, innovative solution and extensive global deployment experiences to deliver a comprehensive range of ultra-high-speed broadband services in Singapore."

Huawei' s integrated All IP broadband solution will enable Nucleus Connect' s Next Gen NBN Active Network to become a highly resilient, open access, multi-services, secure and scalable infrastructure to meet the Nationwide Broadband Network requirements and support Retail Service Providers (RSPs) to create a vibrant and sustainable InfoComm business landscape in Singapore. The network solution is designed to meet lower TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) in the long run and to meet future FMC (Fixed Mobile Convergence) services via various innovative features from Huawei All IP solution.

This Next Gen NBN will be the world' s first Open Access FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) network using GPON & Active Ethernet access technology and multi-service MPLS IP Core technology. On 3 April 2009, Nucleus Connect was appointed by the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) to design, build and operate the active infrastructure of the Next Gen NBN.

The Next Gen NBN is an important wired network infrastructure project undertaken by Singapore's Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) to transform the country into an intelligent nation and global city equipped with nationwide ultra-high-speed broadband access of more than 1 Gbps under the vision of iN2015.

Huawei' s All IP broadband products portfolio has been widely used in more than 100 countries around the world, serving leading operators such as China Mobile, China Telecom, Deutsche Telekom and Telefonica.
