    Polkomtel taps NEC for backhaul upgrade


    Polkomtel is undertaking a three-year refresh of its 3G backhaul network. The network upgrade will lay the ground for Polkomtel's LTE backhaul requirements.

    The operator has signed a framework agreement with NEC for the supply of NEC's microwave radio solutions, including the iPASOLINK200, iPASOLINK400, iPASOLINK1000 and the MS5000 network management system. NEC will also provide a full range of professional services, such as installation, testing of equipment, training and maintenance support services.

    “Demand from mobile operators for the renovation of mobile access networks in order to effectively manage continuing mobile traffic increases is gaining momentum worldwide. NEC’s iPASOLINK series has supported more than 100 operators spanning over 80 countries worldwide to address this challenge,” said Nicolae Varvara, managing director of NEC Eastern Europe.
