Zong 4G has expanded its backbone transmission network from multiples of 10Gbps to 100Gbps to keep up with its fast rising subscriber base.
Operating the country’s largest 4G network, this large-scale upgrade allows the company to move forward in a new phase of expansion, leading to a more enhanced user-experience in terms of speed and reliability.
The Optical Transport Network (OTN) of cellular operators comprises mostly of a long-haul fibre 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.
By expanding its backbone capacity by over 10 times, Zong 4G has ensured that its network remains future proof and that its customers are provided with a seamless digital experience. Ample capacity at the back-end of its network allows Zong 4G’s subscribers to have access to an uninterrupted voice and data stream.
Zong 4G’s Head of Corporate Affairs and Strategy Maham Dard said: “Zong 4G is the only cellular operator that remains committed to investing the cutting edge, continuously employing some of the most advanced technology available. I am confident that, this enhancement to our network infrastructure will contribute greatly to quality of service and end-user experience for many years to come.”
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 capacity. This holds particular benefits for the company’s Enterprise customers as well, allowing for the provision of a wider portfolio of differentiated services.
