China Mobile Hong Kong (CMHK), a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Mobile announced that it will partner with Huawei to build a 5G-ready comprehensive transport network covering 5G transport, enterprise private lines, and home broadband.
This project marks CMHK's transformation from providing pure mobile services to fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) services, and strengthens the strategic partnership between Huawei and CMHK over network construction. During its transformation to an FMC service provider, CMHK has joined hands with Huawei to explore network construction strategies and research network architecture and technology evolution for 5G.
With the Intent-Driven Network (IDN) architecture and uNetBuilder digital platform, Huawei said its 5G-ready comprehensive transport network solution provides FlexE, Ethernet Virtual Private Network (EVPN), Segment Routing, PAM4-based 50GE, 96-wavelength 200G OTN system, and other new functions and technologies. Leveraging the Network Cloud Engine (NCE) that implements end-to-end, unified control and management and intelligent O&M, Huawei claims that it is able to help CMHK effectively build a 5G-ready comprehensive transport network covering private line and home broadband services at the optimal TCO.
