Pakistan's Zong said it has successfully expanded its Backbone transmission network from multiples of 10Gbps to 100Gbps, in order to keep up with its fast rising 4G subscriber base. Zong was launched in 2008 as a 100% owned subsidiary of China Mobile.

The Optical Transport Network (OTN) of cellular operators comprises mostly of a long-haul fiber optic network that forms the figurative backbone of these operators’ entire networks. The extent and strength of these backbone networks define the overall capacity and speed at which individual connections are made by subscribers both to within the network and to wider networks such as the Internet.

By expanding its backbone capacity by over 10 times, Zong said it has not only ensured that its network remains future proof, but has also ensured that its customers are provided with a seamless digital experience unlike anything offered in the industry.

By ensuring ample capacity at the back-end of its network, each and every subscriber on Zong 4G’s network will have access to an uninterrupted voice and data stream, dialed up to the max on the most advanced and widespread 4G network in the country.

This upgrade in Zong 4G’s network infrastructure while offering greater efficiency and reliability to end-users also offers an immense boost in its current bandwidth
