NEC launches backhaul solution for HSPA+ and LTE

NEC has launched  a ultra-high capacity backhaul solution “ePASOLINK”.

NEC has launched  a ultra-high capacity backhaul solution “ePASOLINK”. The new compact wireless transmission system enables mobile network operators to build a cost-effective, IP-based mobile backhaul network that meets the high-capacity data demands of mobile broadband technologies such as HSPA, WiMAX and the anticipated LTE.

“We expect that as mobile operators deploy 4G mobile broadband networks, there will be a step up in capacity demand in the tail links to cell sites and in the aggregation portion of backhaul,” said Hiroyasu Ishii, General Manager, Global Network Division, NEC. 

ePASOLINK provides ultra-high link throughputs of up to 2.5 Gbps in the E-band spectrum range of 70/80 GHz. ePASOLINK offers scalable transport of 2G, 3G, HSPA, WiMAX and LTE, in addition to its support for both Ethernet and SDH/SONET protocols with carrier-grade reliability. Advanced Quality-of-Service capabilities ensure that operators can provide customers with SLA assurance and premium content delivery.

“NEC continues its close relationship with leading operators across the world and we are confident that ePASOLINK will be a key component of their strategic portfolio to address the need for increased network capacity”, adds Hiroyasu Ishii.

ePASOLINK also helps mobile operators to build and operate their backhaul networks with a low cost of ownership. For example, it is supported by NEC’s widely adopted Network Management Systems, which facilitate the easy integration with existing microwave infrastructures, such as PASOLINK the microwave transport system market leader.
