SHENZHEN, China -- Huawei Technologies ("Huawei"), a leader in providing next-generation telecommunication solutions to operators around the world, today announced that, responding to the urgent needs of the Austrian market, it has successfully implemented a replacement of T-Mobile Austria’s core data network 3 months ahead of planned schedule. Huawei’s advanced intelligent packet switch platform exactly matched T-Mobile’s needs to cater to the increasing demand for mobile broadband services. This delivery exceeded the expectations of T-Mobile in terms of smooth integration, quality and performance.

T-Mobile Austria has been highly successful with high-speed mobile data network using 3G technology. As the demand for data services is growing fast, T-Mobile Austria is continuously expanding network capacity to its existing network in order to fulfil customer needs. T-Mobile Austria had earlier selected Huawei’s Intelligent IP core packet network to replace the existing system. Huawei demonstrated its expertise in network design, project management, planning and implementation and moved the schedule ahead by 3 months, which brought 50% reduction in the planned deployment schedule of SGSN. This was accomplished without any impact on existing customer services and without compromising any of the rigorous testing which is a characteristic of T-Mobile Austria’s high quality network deployment.

In addition to the ability to handle large amounts of user data, up to 30Gbps, Huawei packet switch core network has the ability to intelligently route and manage customer data based on the needs of T-Mobile and its customers. By responding to the protocols, destination and other usage information, the Intelligent IP packet switch core provides service tailored to each type of session and supports the creation of innovative new services which will allow T-Mobile to continue its mobile broadband leadership. Beyond the current needs, Huawei’s system is built on a platform that is already equipped to support next generation mobile broadband, known as LTE (Long Term Evolution). By simply loading new software, the system can be upgraded to support the new functionality of LTE/SAE.

Mr. Jim Burke, CTO of T-Mobile Austria, said: “Given Huawei’s dedicated expert team and advanced packet switch core network solution, Huawei really surprised us by this flawless delivery. They fulfilled our expectations and we are proud of the result. As a company we are always looking for new ways to demonstrate our continuing track record as an innovator in the Austrian marketplace.”
