Huawei has successfully completed the Voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) network migration of local exchanges in Shaanxi Province. The contract was awarded by China Mobile to optimise network structure, lower running costs, and enrich end-user experience. The result is that Huawei is helping China Mobile, a mobile carrier with over 300 million subscribers, towards the first-ever large-scale All-IP transformation in the world. The VoIP network transformation of local exchanges is another milestone in China Mobile's All-IP strategy which has involved the All-IP transformation of tandem networks throughout the country over the past two years.

Huawei's distributed-structure All-IP softswitch solution enables China Mobile to adopt IP for carrying voice and signalling messages without changing the service experience of subscribers. The system also contains added benefits such as a self-protection mechanism which further enhances the security of IP networks, so that if a fault happens to the IP bearer plane, the network automatically switches to the second plane without a call drop or a call loss. Huawei is also providing China Mobile with professional services such as consulting, network engineering design and normal-running management, and completed the transition in 45 days with no impact on the original service support system.
