Huawei unveils world's first packet-based MSTP

Huawei Technologies, a provider of next-generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, launched the world's first packet-based multi-service transport platform (MSTP).

It would enable operators, for the first-time, to move seamlessly from time-division multiplexing (TDM) services to packet-based services without the usual cost burden that is associated with such a network upgrade.

The company claims that the solution would also enhance operators' network services and substantially improve the efficiency of mobile transport networks. The new solution is backward compatible and future-oriented to support enhanced 3G and LTE technologies.

Christian Chua, president, Huawei Transport Network Product Line, said: "The new and future-proofed packet-based MSTP solution presents significant opportunities for operators who are currently using TDM-based mobile transport networks and are now looking to upgrade to the exciting next-generation packet services of the future."

This latest packet-based MSTP platform enables mutual conversion and seamless operation among 'pure TDM transport', 'hybrid TDM and packet transport' and 'pure packet transport' networks. The solution also supports unified end-to-end management, protects existing operator assets and investments, and substantially minimizes the costs for upgrading an MSTP network.
