Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today announced a partnership with Dialog’s fixed broadband service arm Dialog Broadband Networks (DBN) to launch an LTE TDD network in Sri Lanka, the first of its kind in South Asia. The first of the network’s two phases was completed on December 31, currently providing coverage in the capital Colombo, with an extension across wider Sri Lanka expected soon.
In deploying its fourth-generation network, DBN chose Huawei’s end-to-end solutions for RAN and EPC bundled with Huawei application software and customer-provided equipment (CPE). Dialog is a pioneer in South Asia, providing an exceptional mobile broadband experience to its end users implementing the latest network technologies. In this latest partnership agreement, Huawei and Dialog plan to implement and deliver outstanding wireless broadband services, satisfying Sri Lanka’s fast growing broadband requirements. Dialog’s LTE TDD network is set to provide the world’s first commercial VoIP service, adopting a VPN solution to provide comprehensive wireless access network services for small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) and home connections. Huawei’s VPN solution offers QoS (Quality of Service) for E2EM (end-to-end management) with precise charging and centralized VPN subscriber management. The solution also supports transparent transmissions on an LTE network to complement or act as a substitute for traditional fixed-lines.
Huawei’s solutions for commercial LTE TDD aim to deliver the best in network performance, network convergence and end-to-end innovation creating the best user experience. To date, Huawei’s strategic vision for LTE TDD has helped operators successfully win business throughout the Asia-Pacific, Middle East, Europe and Africa
