The PS-CN will make Mobily's Saudi network one of the largest packet core installations in the world, with highest data traffic of any network, according to Huawei.
Zhang Xinyu, vice president of Huawei core network said: "We are honoured to have been selected for this critical role by Mobily. Huawei's innovative IP Packet Core solution, with its high-capacity, flexibility and support for multiple standards, will help Mobily continue to evolve its advanced services offerings."
