MWC 2014: Tellabs to demo mobile backhaul solutions for LTE-advanced

At the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014, Tellabs will showcase mobile backhaul solutions for LTE-advanced networks.

In fact, Tellabs is strengthening its portfolio after it was acquired by Marlin Equity Partners who will merge it into Coriant, another portfolio company.

Tellabs said its mobile backhaul solutions for LTE-advanced networks support fast-growing data services, low-latency voice and a wide range of applications – consumer, enterprise, machine-to-machine connectivity, cloud networking and more.

In addition, Tellabs’ new edge router portfolio is further enabled to support Coriant’s multilayer SDN solutions for mobile networks. SDN promises Opex and Capex savings in mobile backhaul.


Tellabs said the new Tellabs 8615 Smart Router is optimized for mobile and fixed-mobile converged networks, with 44 Gbps throughput in a compact 1RU unit. In the future, two Tellabs 8615 routers can be stacked to provide 88 Gbps throughput.

The new Tellabs 8602 Smart Router is a compact, environmentally hardened, full featured 6-port IP/MPLS router that’s only one-third the size of competing products. It fits in the most demanding locations due to its compact, environmentally hardened, water- and dust-proof (IP 67) design.

The Tellabs 8602 router enables plug-and-play auto-configuration through SON (Self Organizing Network) capabilities, speeding deployment of small cells and macrocells. It’s the first in a line of a new series of smart next-generation routers.

The new Tellabs Integrated GPS (GNSS) SFP Module  enables a flexible and cost-efficient Time-of-Day and Phase Synchronization in mobile backhaul networks, which is critical as networks evolve to LTE-TDD and LTE-Advanced. It enables capital expense savings compared with external GPS receiver solutions.
