On Tuesday, Vodafone Hungary announced it will move to an IP/Ethernet-based infrastructure and expand its geographic coverage in Hungary. The service provider chose Tellabs to modernize its current mobile backhaul network.
Vodafone Hungary had deployed the Tellabs 8600 Managed Edge System and the Tellabs 8000 Intelligent Network Manager into its mobile backhaul network in 2005, and is now upgrading the current network to IP/Ethernet while keeping future requirements of HSPA and LTE technologies in mind, says Tellabs (Naperville, Ill., USA). In addition, the operator wants to add more capacity into the network to match the growth in consumer data use anticipated in the upcoming years.
To upgrade the network, Vodafone will use theTellabs 8609 Access Switch, which helps provide greater capacity in the network. In addition, the Tellabs 8609 switch can be deployed in various network locations enabling HSPA and LTE-enabled networks.
Vodafone Hungary will also utilize Tellabs management system, which will allow the service provider to deploy new network elements into its network without integrating a new network management system in its OSS infrastructure and processes.
