Harris Stratex Networks, the independent supplier of turnkey wireless transmission solutions, has been selected by Austrian mobile operator ONE to upgrade its cellular backhaul network. Harris Stratex Networks will deploy its Eclipse microwave radios to increase bandwidth, reduce operating costs and build an IP-ready infrastructure to support future network developments.
Eclipse will be deployed in a nodal configuration to support increased bandwidth demands from ONE's 3G network upgrade. Eclipse's uniquely compact nodal configuration enables operators to aggregate and concentrate traffic-without the need for additional equipment to provide these functions-reducing the complexity of network deployments, increasing reliability and lowering operating costs.
"Harris Stratex Networks has demonstrated leadership in both technical capabilities and quality of engineering support," said Helmut Lehermayr, Head of Radio Networks of ONE. "The Eclipse solution will give us a network that is capable of delivering rich, cutting-edge data services and handling high volumes of data for years to come."
Eclipse's nodal capability, combined with flexible, high-capacity, native data interfaces makes it the ideal solution for operators requiring an IP-ready, future-proof solution when upgrading their networks today.
"European operators need a backhaul solution that can support fast-growing demands for data, both in current configurations and for future all-IP networks," said Guy Campbell, president and chief executive officer of Harris Stratex Networks. "Our unique offering, combining flexible bandwidth, carrier-class Ethernet and advanced nodal configurations in the Eclipse radio, will help ONE expand and evolve toward a data-centric network more cost-effectively and innovatively than any other solution in the market."
