Huawei has been selected by Millicom, a mobile phone network provider in Latin America and Africa, to deploy an international long distance network in Central America. Using Huawei's One Network solution, the new network will cover three countries Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.
Huawei's One Network features precise calling control, flexible service dispatch, and simplified operation and maintenance, which will enable Millicom to introduce new types of long-distance services that open revenue streams and reinforce customer loyalty.
"With our unique strength and strong experience in deploying convergent networks, we are delighted to build a multi-country network that will increase operational efficiency and business profitability for Millicom," said Mr. Zhang Shunmao, President of North Latin America, Huawei.
As a substitute for the legacy long-distance switches in the existing networks, Millicom will deploy an All-IP-based multi-country gateway that will significantly simplify network architecture and bring an enhanced user experience to Millicom's customers by improving voice quality and the reliability of cross-nation calls. The deployment of Huawei's One Network solution will facilitate a smooth All-IP network transformation for Millicom by fully utilizing the existing network resources.
