Rostelecom taps Huawei for Wi-Fi network deployment in Russia

Rostelecom Wi-FiRostelecom in Russia has selected Huawei to achieve high-quality Wi-Fi network deployment in the Moscow region.

Rostelecom will be making investment in Wi-Fi networks for its central branch by 2018, covering both outdoor and indoor scenarios.

The challenge for Rostelecom is to manage Wi-Fi to customers during low temperatures for most of the year, thunderstorms in summer and the most densely populated city.

Huawei will be offering All Scenario Wi-Fi Solution to Rostelecom for its central branch. Huawei said its outdoor APs can operate at -40°C and are integrated with surge protection modules, saving installation space and reducing installation and maintenance difficulties.

Rostelecom can use agile, distributed Wi-Fi solution from Huawei in scenarios with densely located rooms, and APs with built-in directional antennas are used in high-density scenarios such as railway stations and exhibition halls.

Huawei’s All Scenario Wi-Fi Solution enables Rostelecom to implement indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi coverage for hotspot areas, including schools, shopping malls, stadiums, and commercial streets. WLANs help Rostelecom improve the mobile access experience for subscribers and help bring B2B business value-added services to shopping malls and governments.

“Digital transformation is accelerating WLAN coverage in city hotspots. Huawei will partner with Rostelecom to deliver optimal network experience, contributing to B2B business success,” said Wang Shihong, vice president of Huawei Switch and Enterprise Gateway Product Line.
