    Vodafone Hungary modernises backhaul network with Tellabs


    Vodafone Hungary will move its backhaul network to an IP/Ethernet-based infrastructure and expand geographic coverage using equipment from existing supplier, Tellabs.

    Vodafone Hungary deployed Tellabs’ 8600 Managed Edge System and 8000 Intelligent Network Manager into its mobile backhaul network in 2005. Now it will upgrade the current network to IP/Ethernet. In addition, the operator wants to add more capacity into the network to match the growth in consumer data use anticipated in the upcoming years.

    The cornerstone of the upgraded network is the new Tellabs® 8609 Access Switch, which provides greater capacity in the network. In addition, the Tellabs 8609 switch can be deployed in various network locations enabling HSPA and LTE-enabled networks.

    “Tellabs’ Mobile Backhaul Solution provides cost-efficient, reliable and innovative mobile data services to our customers,” said Csaba Almási, Senior Transmission Manager, Vodafone Hungary. “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.”

    “We are proud to continue partnering with Vodafone Hungary on its mobile network modernisation,” said Tarcisio Ribeiro, vice president, Europe, Middle East & Africa at Tellabs. “Since 2005, we have helped Vodafone cope with their backhaul challenges – and now we will continue to help them to overcome the challenges of IP and 4G technology migration.”
