[Barcelona, Spain, 14 February 2011] Huawei, a leader in providing next-generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, today unveiled its "Any Connection" Mobile Broadband (MBB) Backhaul solution at the Mobile World Congress 2011, which offers smooth evolution from UMTS and HSPA to LTE.
Mobile networks are migrating from UMTS and HSPA to LTE for more superior end-user experiences over higher-speed connections with higher spectrum efficiency, which requires larger bandwidth provisioning and greater reductions in total cost of ownership (TCO) for mobile broadband profitability. Huawei's MBB backhaul solution is an All-IP-based solution offering "Any Connection" networking to dramatically reduce transport cost per bit of mobile networks on the way to LTE and guarantees premium mobile experiences by offering ultra broadband solutions in the MBB era.
The innovative "Any Connection" capabilities of Huawei's MBB backhaul solution offer comprehensive on-demand networking modes in traffic routing, service switching, site deployment and spectrum modulating, which will optimize asset efficiency of mobile backhaul networks. Additional highlights include:
Industry's first backhaul with on-demand routing modes between dynamic and static in end-to-end router networking, with 300 mm-depth edge routers installed in outdoor cabinets, offering more agility to IP connections between Node Bs & RNCs or eNode Bs and aGWs to optimize diversified traffic modes amid mobile network evolution.
Industry's first backhaul with on-demand switching modes from TDM, hybrid to pure packet with software upgrade in microwave networking, offering larger investment protection of traffic delivery to accommodate service migration from UMTS and HSPA to LTE.
Innovative backhaul with on-demand site deploying of nodal microwave supporting up to 14/28 pairs of ODUs and antennas at aggregation site, offering higher utilization of expensive space resources for rental cost saving of massive sites in multi-layer coverage and LTE era.
Innovative backhaul with comprehensive on-demand modulating modes of QPSK & QAM in microwave networking, with additional XPIC (Cross-polarisation Interference Counteracter), and Ethernet & IP Head compression, offering higher utilization of rare spectrum resources for a higher connection speed from megabit per second to gigabit per second per link over single channel.
"Huawei understands that mobile networks need to migrate from UMTS and HSPA to LTE and we are proud to offer 'Any Connection' Mobile Broadband backhaul solution to meet customer's needs for investment protection of IP backhaul networks in mobile evolution," said Zha Jun, President of Network, Huawei. "Solution providers who help operators undergo the IP transformation of mobile backhaul networks need to have leading solutions, professional and successful experiences in mobile and fixed broadband networks and All-IP commercial deployments. Huawei possesses these advantages and has helped many customers achieve business success."
By the end of 2010, Huawei's All-IP mobile backhaul solutions have been commercially deployed in more than 20 countries around the world, serving leading operators such as China Mobile, Vodafone, Orange, Telefonica/O2, MegaFon and T-Mobile, making Huawei one of the world's largest providers of commercial IP backhaul networks.
