CyC chooses MRV OptiSwitch for mobile backhaul in Argentina

2012-11-08 17:33:54

MRV Communications, Inc. (OTCQB : MRVC) says that it has won a contract from CyC S.A., the telecommunications subsidiary of Argentina's largest electricity company, to deliver its OptiSwitch Carrier Ethernet Access products. The deployment sees CyC leverage its parent’s electrical system footprint to create a Carrier Ethernet network that supports wholesale mobile backhaul and other data services.

CyC has developed an extensive aerial mesh fiber-optic network in cooperation with other utility companies, mainly electrical, MRV says. The network connects cell towers in metropolitan areas throughout the country. Requirements for the Carrier Ethernet network include support of wholesale mobile backhaul services, resilience to the high temperatures the network elements will endure during the summer, adequate coverage of each city with scattered base stations, and support of legacy circuit-base voice traffic.

To meet these needs, MRV says it is supplying its OS904-MBH-4 timing and synchronization gateway with circuit emulation services (CES) and the OS9124-410G first-mile packet-optical aggregation platform. The systems offer G8032 Ethernet Ring Protection and 10 Gigabit Ethernet link aggregation capabilities to provide high reliability and create a redundant, fault-tolerant network. The systems also are designed to enable CyC S.A. to offer business Ethernet services with strict and assured service-level agreements (SLAs).

"MRV's long history of designing and building mobile backhaul networks was a key factor in our decision to select the OptiSwitch for demarcation and aggregation functions. MRV's experienced engineering teams worked closely with us to design and build the network according to our particular service requirements," said Gustavo Varela, COO at CyC S.A. "As a result, we have a greater peace of mind in knowing that we are implementing a tried and tested mobile backhaul solution that will become a key element of our network service offering moving forward."
