Batelco, the Kingdom’s leading communications solutions provider, and Huawei, a leading global ICT solutions provider, have successfully conducted a speed trial of 40G TWDM PON (Time and Wavelength Division Multiplexing Passive Optic Network) technology which provides up to 40Gbps speed to deliver seamless ultra-broadband, Future Cloud & ICT solution, future IPTV, voice over IP and digital services.
Batelco is first in Bahrain to successfully trial this technology on its network; continuing with its position as a leader in the field of communications, not only in Bahrain but in the region.
The new 40G technology will enable Batelco to maintain a platform that is able to support the delivery of next generation, cutting-edge consumer and enterprise communication services at affordable prices.
Batelco Bahrain A/CEO Muna Al Hashemi said that Batelco is delighted with the success of the 40Gbps trial in cooperation with Huawei, one of their foremost strategic partners for many years.
“Batelco remains committed to bringing its customers the latest and most advanced services. We have focused on constantly enhancing our networks, creating strong partnerships, and bringing innovative technologies to our markets.
