Vodafone Hungary selects Tellabs for mobile backhaul solution

28 Mar 2012

Vodafone’s Hungarian subsidiary has picked US-based Tellabs to modernise its current mobile backhaul network. Under the contract Vodafone Hungary is looking to migrate to an IP/Ethernet-based infrastructure and to expand its geographic coverage in Hungary. The cornerstone of the upgraded network is Tellabs’ high-capacity 8609 Access Switch, which can be deployed in various network locations enabling high speed packet access (HSPA) and Long Term Evolution (LTE)-enabled networks. Previously, Vodafone Hungary deployed Tellabs’ 8600 Managed Edge System and the Tellabs 8000 Intelligent Network Manager into its mobile backhaul network in 2005. Commenting on the current project, Csaba Almasi, senior transmission manager at Vodafone Hungary, said: ‘Tellabs’ Mobile Backhaul Solution provides cost-efficient, reliable and innovative mobile data services to our customers,’ while ‘our network modernisation programme addresses current needs and meets future technology and capacity requirements. Our new Tellabs IP Network provides a highly competitive solution for both needs.’
