Huawei to set up second R&D centre in India

Telecom gear maker Huawei will set up a new research and development (R&D) centre in Bangalore with an investment of $ 150 million (about Rs 813 crore) in the second half of this year.


China Mobile and Huawei bring 4G to the Everest

China Mobile's Tibet unit has hold a 4G trial network launching ceremony on the afternoon of June 11th, it announced that more than 50 4G experience locations were already deployed, and the 4G era is speeding up to embrace Tibet, a consecrated border land of China.


Huawei, Optus launch world-first TD-LTE Advanced Carrier Aggregation network in Australia

Huawei and Optus have announced the world's first deployment of Carrier Aggregation technology on a live, commercial TD-LTE (Time-Division Long Term Evolution) network, with speeds hitting more than 160Mbps, Huawei Australia announced on Thursday.


Fiber in Europe bucks economic trends

As the industry gears up for the FTTH Council Europe’s 2013 conference in London February 19-21, Lightwave European Correspondent Kurt Ruderman asked fiber-optics analyst Richard Mack of CRU International to evaluate the European scene in 2012 and to discuss his outlook for fiber and cable in 2013, particularly as it relates to FTTx in Europe.


Asia-Pacific LTE Subscriptions Are Expected to Double to 72.1 Million by the End of 2013

In 4Q-2012, the LTE subscription in Asia-Pacific has increased by 60.92% quarter-on-quarter (QoQ), reaching 34.6 million. ABI Research expects that the LTE subscription market will continue to grow rapidly in 2013 to reach 72.1 million. “The operators in South Korea have aggressively promoted LTE since launch. For example, SK Telecom, the largest operator in terms of subscriptions, had gained 7 million LTE subscribers by the end of 2012, and aims to secure 13 million by the end of 2013, a feat that will mean 50% of its subscribers will be on LTE,” said Marina Lu, research associate at ABI Research.


Optical network trends for 2013

If the past year could be defined by a few big headlines, one would be “Economic Crunch Hasn’t Slowed Urgency for Network Capacity.” Or how about “Network Players Constantly Evolving Business Models to Support New Era of Connected Living”?


Future-proofing the Optical Transport Network

Technology is at its most useful when it’s flexible enough to adapt to changing needs. Take WiFi as an example; imagine how complex it would be if there were half a dozen different WiFi standards out there. But wait…there actually are at least nine different 802.11 WiFi variants– but part of the WiFi standards process is to ensure that different implementations are flexible enough to negotiate the highest data rate for most combinations of client and base station.


IP-optimized transport in optical access and metro

Transport equipment is used to manage connectivity between edge/access equipment and metro/aggregation and core networking equipment. Traditionally, the task of such equipment has centered on the need to aggregate and transport multiple, diverse protocols and services. SONET/SDH was the first true transport protocol that could aggregate voice, data, and other common services. As traffic demands grew, the physical-layer channelization method of WDM was developed for optical fiber. Unfortunately SONET/SDH was defined before WDM; as a result, SONET/SDH had no way to manage wavelengths or optical elements such as optical amplifiers and optical add/drop multiplexers.


China Unicom builds largest WCDMA 3G network

China United Network Communications Group Co Ltd, the parent company of China's second-biggest telecom operator, said the company had completed the building of the world's largest WCDMA 3G network by the end of 2011.
