China Mobile selects Sevis Systems to provide GSM optimization


Sevis Systems, a global provider of mobile backhaul and
signaling solutions, announced receipt of a multi-million dollar award from
China Mobile to provide A.bis optimization across 1100 sites in China.


Prior to receiving the award, Sevis underwent rigorous
testing by China Mobile, and was certified against all of their RAN vendors
including Ericsson, Nokia-Siemens, Huawei, Alcatel-Lucent, Motorola, Nortel,
and ZTE.  


The Sevis 6000 Series is purpose-built for mobile
backhaul applications and includes redundant power supplies, hot swappable
modules and enhanced clocking for IP backhaul.


The products support all GSM voice codecs, provide
bandwidth optimization of approximately 50 percent on A.bis and A.ter links,
and are designed to improve overall performance and quality of service over
both satellite and terrestrial infrastructures.


The 6000 Series is also highly scalable, supporting
configurations of up to 4, 10 or 20 full E1 links in a single 1U chassis.


During the evaluation process Sevis collaborated closely
with Wancom Communication & Network Technology Beijing, one of its
distribution partners in China.


“Our partnership with Wancom was the key to our
success, as it enabled Sevis to provide superior customer support to China
Mobile during the evaluation process,” said Steve Samaniego, president of
Sevis Systems.


With 600 million subscribers across the country, China
Mobile is the largest wireless operator in the world. After the magnitude 7.9
earthquake devastated Sichuan province in May 2008, China Mobile undertook an
initiative to implement a disaster recovery network that will enable
communications and facilitate recovery in the event of another national


China Mobile will deploy the Sevis 6000 Series mobile
backhaul platform on its disaster recovery network to reduce bandwidth
requirements by over 50 percent.


“The ability to communicate during a natural
disaster is essential, and we are honored that China Mobile has selected Sevis
and Wancom to provide key functionality for this mission critical
network,” said Theodore Tsui, president of Wancom.


Recently, Alcatel-Lucent and China Mobile announced that
they have reached another major milestone in the creation of next generation wireless services by staging the first
mobile broadband video call on a next-generation 4G LTE mobile network to
connect a fixed location and a car in Shanghai with Alcatel-Lucent offices in
New Jersey.


Using lightRadio,
Alcatel-Lucent’s breakthrough technology, the video call linked
Alcatel-Lucent’s Bell Labs headquarters in Murray Hill, New Jersey, the
Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell demonstration center in Shanghai, and the ‘LTE
Connected Car’ demonstrator roaming in Shanghai and utilizing China Mobile’s
fourth-generation TD-LTE trial network.
