Transmode’s Mobile Backhaul Solution creates wholesale opportunities for US Carriers


Stockholm, Sweden – Transmode, a leading provider of optical networking solutions, will present its new Multi-Service Mobile Backhaul Solution for the first time in the US – at both Supercomm (Chicago, October 21-23) and SCTE Cable Tec Expo (Denver, October 28-30).

The Multi-Service Mobile Backhaul Solution is a unique WDM over fiber solution providing “hybrid” native support of both TDM and Ethernet traffic and supports multiple synchronization streams per wavelength. It therefore enables a smooth migration to Ethernet or all-IP backhaul networks and cost effective support of 3G and LTE multimedia service rollouts.

The presentation of the Multi-Service Mobile Backhaul Solution’s to the US market is intended to generate interest from the MSOs as well as from ILECs, CLECs and IOCs. The solution is particularly interesting as it supports wholesale services. Specifically it supports multiple synchronization signals, enabling backhaul of multiple wireless technologies and most importantly, multiple operators on the same fiber infrastructure.

“Transmode has already enjoyed much success in the US including our recent big win at KDL,” commented Paul Harrison, the company’s recently appointed VP of Sales for North America. ”Besides offering an ideal solution for mobile operators seeking to extend fiber to their cell sites, the new Multi-Service Backhaul Solution will also empower MSOs and other US Carriers that provide fiber access on a wholesale basis.”

The Multi-Service Mobile Backhaul Solution provides a fiber-based backhaul that will help carriers to overcome synchronization and bandwidth problems so they can rapidly roll out new 3G, LTE-based and 4G services. The ability to maintain multiple synchronization signals to the cell sites in a mobile network allows the Carrier to simultaneously support a mix of 2G (TDM), 3G (ATM/Ethernet) and LTE/4G (Ethernet) radio base station equipment as well as legacy T1, FE/GE and OC-3 for 1 or more wireless operators. It will also come in a hardened version that meets the requirements connected to harsh environmental conditions.

The new solution’s Intelligent WDM (iWDMTM) multi-service characteristics enable a gradual migration and the possibility to do selected capacity upgrades through LTE in dense areas without affecting the core network architecture. It also makes it equally well suited to support traditional fixed network services and ensures that it works well in a combined microwave/fiber network.

Sten Nordell, Transmode’s Chief Technology Officer, added “Our initial discussions with mobile/fixed operators and network operators that offer wholesale services to mobile operators have been very encouraging. Pushing WDM technology out to the cell site is the logical extension of our Multi-Service technology. By using our iWDM approach customers will enjoy a unique solution that addresses the multiple synchronization domains issue that other solutions just can’t address.”
