A major Indian operator is set to upgrade its backhaul mobile transport network. Tata Teleservices Limited (TTL) is deploying NEC’s iPASOLINK platform to increase the flexibility of its mobile transport network, allowing it to be adapted for next-generation IP-based networks, while meeting the current capacity and service demands of customers.
“TTL is now in the process of expanding its network for both coverage and capacity in the mobility and enterprise business segments, which will require backhaul of both TDM and IP traffic. Our requirements, therefore, necessitate the deployment of Hybrid Radio in the network. NEC’s iPASOLINK platform fully meets these requirements and can be adapted for Next-Generation IP-based networks,” said Mr. AG Rao, Executive President, Enterprise Business and Technology, TTL.
The platform is designed to support the transition from today’s hybrid TDM and Ethernet backhaul towards full IP transport, while significantly reducing the cost of ownership thanks to its all-in-one converged design. The platform’s flexible modular architecture allows operators to optimise their network strategies and to gradually invest in step with actual service and traffic demands. This design, combined with NEC’s unparalleled engineering reliability, ensures that iPASOLINK delivers outstanding value to operators.
“As the Indian mobile communication market continues its rapid expansion, operators face the challenge of making significant investments in order to provide next generation mobile broadband services while managing CAPEX and OPEX”, said Takayuki Morita, Senior Vice President of NEC.
