Huawei is strengthening its mobile broadband solutions capabilities with the release of the world's first 10GE CSR (News - Alert) (Cell Site Router) ATN 950B for LTE backhaul.
The launch was announced at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and it enables carriers to deploy extra-large LTE (News - Alert) networks as well as provide enhanced mobile data services for their users.
Huawei is a global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider. Noting the rationale of the launch, the company says that 2011 was a significant milestone for the global LTE market, and 237 operators from 85 countries have already invested in LTE.
The newly released Cell Site Router is small in size but boasts large capacity. Huawei (News - Alert) claims its ATN 950B provides larger network bandwidth, multi-services, higher deployment efficiency and lower maintenance.
These features effectively help the operators meet the demand of rapid bandwidth growth for LTE.
"LTE will become the mainstream in the mobile market and develop at a rapid pace in the coming two to three years," said Gai Gang, president of Carrier IP Product Line, Huawei. "Driven by this trend, LTE base CSR needs to be developed. As the first 10GE CSR, ATN 950B helps operators deploy mobile broadband networks quickly and evolve their networks to LTE networks smoothly."
ATN 950B has a range of features including its ability to cover bandwidth increase from 1GE to 10GE during LTE phases, even beyond LTE. The Cell Site Router can be shared the same rack with eNodeB, supports 10GE ring, L2VPN, L3VPN, and H-QoS and can flexibly schedule various services on complex networks.
ATN 950B also supports synchronization with multiple precise clocks, such as ACR, synchronous Ethernet, and IEEE1588v2.
