This advanced technological strategy will help meet the rising demand from residential and business customers for high-quality service on their smartphones, tablets and other connected devices.

Alcatel-Lucent and Ooredoo Algeria have built a high-capacity optical transport network to connect Algeria’s mains cities of Algiers, Constantine and Oran- as well as smaller cities – with high-speed ultra broadband mobile access.

The agile optical network which, according to the company, is Africa’s first Alcatel-Lucent 400G (gigabits-per-second) ‘backbone’ – will be fully operational before the end of 2014. It will provide dramatically increased speed and capacity compared to previous Algerian mobile networks.

The network will be based on Alcatel-Lucent’s Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) optical transport technology using the 1830 Photonic Service Switch platform, which is now the mainstay of the company’s terrestrial optical business.

Building the first 400G (gigabits-per-second)-based backbone in Africa for Ooredoo Algeria comes weeks after being one of the first operators in the world reaching the highest speed of 63MB/s over its 3G network. According to the company, this advanced technological strategy will help meet the rising demand from residential and business customers for high-quality service on their smartphones, tablets and other connected devices. The 400G-based backbone will also be leveraged to support the emergence of a strong Algerian new tech ecosystem.
