fSONA provides mobile backhaul to Touch customers in Lebanon
fSONA Networks, manufacturer of free-space optical (FSO) wireless communications equipment, says Touch (formerly MTC Touch) will use the SONAbeam 1250-M free space optical wireless links to provide mobile backhaul connectivity, enabling Touch to deliver 4G LTE services to its customers in Lebanon. Touch manages one of Lebanon’s two existing mobile networks, Mobile Interim Company 2 (MIC2).With the first phase of the project underway, this newly adopted optical wireless technology is being installed throughout Beirut, Lebanon. Multiple links will continue to be deployed in the greater Beirut area over the coming year.SONAbeam optical wireless allows Touch to move forward quickly with modernizing the mobile network in Lebanon without the delays associated with trenching fiber-optic cable or negotiating spectrum frequency use for microwave links, fSONA asserts. Furthermore, SONAbeam transceivers easily integrate with equipment from other mobile supplies due to their standard interfaces and compatibility with existing network management systems, the company adds.“As a leading telecom player in the market, we are keen to stay at the forefront of technology. Touch is the first mobile operator to use this new technology in the region. The introduction of fSONA to Touch network will help in providing high bandwidth especially for the sites that are facing microwave spectrum congestion in the Beirut area,” said Wael Ayoub, COO of Touch.Using a free-space optical link like SONAbeam eliminates the costs of digging up streets and sidewalks required to install fiber-optic cable while also avoiding recurring costs, according to fSONA. Unlike non-optical wireless approaches, the SONAbeam is immune to electro-magnetic (EM) and RF interference which means no licensing is required. SONAbeam’s laser technology operates at a wavelength of 1550 nm, which provides a broad spectrum of safety and performance advantages. The SONAbeam’s high-powered laser transmitters are able to penetrate heavy rain, snow and fog far more effectively and consistently than any other available FSO technology, the company claims.
Huawei launches intelligent optical splitter for FTTH networks
Huawei Technologies Co Ltd. launched what it claims is the industry's first intelligent optical splitter for passive optical networks (PON) at the FTTH Conference in London last week. With this new optical splitter, operators can automatically identify and generation topological maps of the optical distribution network (ODN) for fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks, the company says.The large-scale deployment of FTTH networks makes it challenging for operators to manage huge quantities of optical fibers, says Huawei. During the construction phase, operators have had to document the network topology through manual reports, which is an inefficient and time consuming process and not always 100% accurate, which affected operations and maintenance (O&M).In addition, during the operational phase, the optical time-domain reflectometer (OTDR)-based fault finding process detects faults according to the signal intervals returning from different branches, which fails when optical fiber branches are of the same length and sometimes requires reverse fault diagnosis by sending engineers out to households. Consequently, customer satisfaction decreases because it takes longer to find and remedy faults.With the built-in optical domain identity and the advanced ID identification technology applied in the central office, the newly released intelligent splitter enables remote detection of optical splitter branches and automatic topology identification, which greatly improves the management efficiency and quality of the optical fiber network, according to Huawei.The intelligent optical splitter also implements fault alarming, diagnosis, and responsibility definition for each branch by using a two-dimensional fault detecting system featuring optical domain identity and OTDR-based signal interval feedback, which significantly enhances the efficiency of operations and maintenance processes.“The newly added intelligent optical splitter to the iODN solution truly realizes intelligent intensive management of optical fibers in FTTH networks,” said Wang Dexiang, director of fiber infrastructure business unit at Huawei.
Ericsson to provide mobile backhaul for T-Mobile Poland
New mobile backhaul infrastructure provided by Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) now serves 15 million T-Mobile customers in Poland, the systems house says.The use of mobile broadband is spreading rapidly in Poland. In 2011 mobile broadband usage was 55%, a steady and significant increase from 20% in 2009. As a result, network operators are being challenged to provide significantly more capacity, while maintaining network performance. Ericsson says the new network it has provided will enable Polska Telefonia Cyfrowa S.A. (PTC), operator of the T-Mobile brand, to address the increasing demand for data.Ericsson will supply T-Mobile with its MINI-LINK SP packet aggregation nodes, Ericsson SPO 1400 Packet Optical Transport systems, and IP Transport network management system products. T-Mobile will gain simple and cost-effective network migration from TDM to high-performance packet networking based on Multiprotocol Label Switching Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) with a complete end-to-end managed mobile backhaul solution from Ericsson. Ericsson is also providing deployment, support, and spare parts management services as part of the deal.Anders Runevad, president of region West and Central Europe at Ericsson, says, "Our companies have cooperated together for 17 years. The mobile backhaul migration provides superior network quality, through a simple and scalable solution. It offers speed and reliability and meets the subscriber demands for more bandwidth and the best possible broadband experience for our customers."
