SHENZHEN, China -- Huawei, a leader in providing next-generation telecommunications network solutions worldwide, today announced, along with partner China Mobile, the successful deployment of the world' s first ATCA (Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture) based mobile softswitch solution in Guangdong province. This deployment holds the record for the single largest user-supported service by any vendor, serving 1.7 million subscribers in Dongguan City.

Huawei' s ATCA mobile softswitch system, which can support 12 million subscribers with one device, can be used across many applications and features high-capacity and high-integration. It offers "plug-and-play" to carrier-grade systems by defining a high-availability, chassis-based platform that will scale from gigabits- to terabits-per-second and helps operators smoothly migrate to a future-oriented convergence network.

The significant benefits of an ATCA-based system, including faster time to market, vendor choice, increased flexibility and reduced TCO (total cost of ownership), enable operators to build effective, green and reliable core networks. Huawei' s ATCA-based mobile softswitch solution has helped China Mobile to reduce its footprint by 90 percent and power consumption by 65 percent.

"Huawei is proud to help China Mobile provide its customers with a more stable, reliable and high-quality service," said Mr. Peng Tao, president of Huawei's Mobile Softswitch Product Line. "This innovative ATCA-based mobile softswitch solution enables China Mobile to lower operating costs while fulfilling its green strategy."
