Du, Huawei to build mobile broadband network in UAE

DUBAI, July 2, 2015

Dubai-based telecommunications operator du and its partner Huawei, a leading ICT solutions provider have unveiled plans for a co-operation that will see the two companies build the region’ most advanced mobile broadband (MBB) network in UAE.

It will offer evolutionary architecture ensuring the best possible user experience, said a statement.

The memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed between Marwan BinShakar, vice president Mobile Access Network at du and Ying Weimin, president of research and development (R&D) Wireless Networks at Huawei outlining a three-year wireless network insight project for the ICT vendor to assist du in the development of its next-generation mobile broadband network.  

The explosive growth of consumer data usage has led many telecom operators to explore the expansion of their mobile broadband networks to include technologies that can accommodate LTE-Advanced, 4.5G and 5G capabilities, it said.

The next-generation of MBBs are being defined and developed to serve these huge data requirements as the Internet of Things continues to become more widespread, it added.

As part of the deal, Huawei will lead on network insight that will oversee the flow of du’s business operations and provide technical and service support, said the statement.

Huawei’s focus will fall within four key pillars of operation which include network insight, user behaviour analysis, user migration analysis, and spectrum and Network evolution recommendations, it said.

Through this process Huawei will show du how to analyse the network and its customer’s usage habits to maximise the efficiency of its MBB network for continuous business success, it added.

"This MoU with Huawei outlines our commitment to offer the fastest, most reliable and technologically innovative Mobile Broadband connectivity services for our consumers in the UAE. We are witnessing the exponential rise in data usage, and to ensure that our customers continue to experience great service we need to remain at the forefront of technology,” said BinShakar.

“As our strategic partner, Huawei has showcased its capability in partnering with us to shape the evolution roadmap for our network and has implemented multi-layer network solutions across the world,” he said.

With its expertise in building mobile broadband networks, Huawei maintains that mobile services will spearhead the next revolution for the communications industry by enabling users to freely connect with each other, share content at high speeds, and enjoy more inspired communication experiences anytime, anywhere.

“To address the challenges brought about by an ever-expanding mobile ecosystem, networks must become both broader and smarter,” said Weimin.

“Du has clearly made that a priority for their customers and will be able to leverage our expertise to develop an intuitive network enhanced with the very latest Huawei innovations. Building on our longstanding cooperation with du, Huawei is committed to delivering cutting-edge solutions to help evolve to a future of endless mobile possibilities,” he added. - TradeArabia News Service
