T-Mobile Poland implements new mobile backhaul solution

Mobile backhaul ensures IP connectivity all the way through the network enabling continued running of 2G and 3G networks and future LTE services. The use of mobile broadband is spreading rapidly in Poland. In 2011 mobile broadband usage was 55 percent, a steady and significant increase from 20 percent in 2009. The increase in mobile broadband users has challenged network operators to provide significantly more capacity, while maintaining network performance.

Polska Telefonia Cyfrowa (PTC), the Polish branch of T-Mobile, is using Ericsson’s mobile backhaul solution to address the increasing demand for data. Ericsson is supplying its MINI-LINK SP Packet aggregation nodes, SPO 1400 Packet Optical Transport and IP Transport network management system products.

T-Mobile will gain simple and cost-effective network migration from TDM (Time Division Multiplexing) to high-performance packet networking based on MPLS-TP (Multiprotocol Label Switching Transport Profile) with a complete end-to-end managed mobile backhaul solution from Ericsson.

Anders Runevad, President of RWCE at Ericsson, says: "The mobile backhaul migration provides superior network quality, through a simple and scalable solution. It offers speed and reliability and meets the subscriber demands for more bandwidth and the best possible broadband experience for our customers."
