LONDON -- Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. ("Huawei"), a leader in providing next generation networks for telecommunications operators, today shared its vision to create a common IP-centric network to realize fixed mobile network convergence at the 21st Century Communications World Forum in London, England, an event organized by the International Engineering Consortium (IEC) and officially sponsored by British Telecom. The forum, which takes place from 27 to 30 March 2006, will feature key telecom operators and vendors from around the world. As one of the leading telecommunications vendors in Europe, Huawei shared its insights on future market developments of the global telecommunications industry at the forum.

Mr. Wang Jin, Vice President, Head of European Marketing, Huawei Technologies Europe, was the first keynote speaker at the forum. Mr. Wang pointed out that the IP-based ICT industry integration would create a profound and extensive impact on the future of telecom networks. The key to delivering excellence in service operations lies in the evolution of the existing network to a flexible IP-based multi-service network and the establishment of a win-win broadband value chain.

Huawei also led a workshop to discuss "A common IP-centric network infrastructure for fixed mobile convergence". Other participants in the workshop included top global carriers such as British Telecom, France Telecom, Telecom Italia, China Telecom, and consulting firm, Ovum, all of whom discussed the driving forces of a common IP-centric network architecture and network, and shared their respective research results and practical progresses.

Mr. Joy Huang, Huawei's expert in NGN, discussed the driving forces of network convergence in terms of industry convergence and customer experience requirements. He believes that FMC hierarchical architecture should be built in stages for gradual development of customer integrated services. The network service control center, user data center, session control center, resource control center and unified Service POP should be set up in a gradual manner. The access layer should evolve to the integrated NG-MSAN, and the bearer layer should develop towards all IP. The IP and optical networks should be gradually integrated, while MPLS and Ethernet should be developed to carrier-class level. Huawei's insights are concurred and highly appreciated by participating senior executives of industry carriers.
