Batelco has an­nounced plans to use Huawei’s distributed ac­cess plat­form MA5800 for its broad­band net­work de­ploy­ment, sup­port­ing 500Mbps broad­band ac­cess in Bahrain.

The agree­ment marks the first time that Huawei’s MA5800 plat­form has been used for scaled net­work de­ploy­ment in the Mid­dle East, and means high-end users in the south of Bahrain will have ac­cess to ul­tra-broad­band ser­vices.

Batelco re­cently rolled out 500Mbps broad­band and its own TV ser­vices for res­i­dents in Dur­rat Al Bahrain, and has out­lined plans to launch these ser­vices across its na­tional broad­band net­works in the near fu­ture.

“These re­li­able and high-speed (500Mbps) net­works can meet mul­ti­ple de­mands from our cus­tomers. They can ex­pe­ri­ence var­i­ous In­ter­net ser­vices such as ul­tra HD (UHD) movie down­load­ing, on­line gam­ing, and large-size file up­load­ing,” said Muna Al Hashemi, Batelco Bahrain CEO.

Huawei’s MA5800 plat­form pro­vides a switch­ing ca­pac­ity be­tween five and 10 times that found on tra­di­tional ac­cess plat­forms. This means up to 16,000 peo­ple can watch 4K videos at the same time through one MA5800.
