Delhi, India, June 22, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Aricent, a full-service, full-spectrum communications software company, today announced the launch of its Cell-Site Aggregation solution. Ideal for network equipment providers selling into the mobile operator markets, the Aricent Cell-Site Aggregation solution is a software and service combination that will allow more cost-efficient Ethernet and IP connectivity for the deployment of next-generation mobile services.
“As mobile operators begin to adapt radio access networks (RANs) to incorporate high-speed data services, the volume and cost of network traffic will grow dramatically,” said Albert Lin, Co-Head Director of Research, American Technology Research. “Long lead times for additional backhaul leased lines present a major obstacle to entry. Cell-site aggregation solutions such as Aricent’s allow for the offload of traffic to more efficient and less expensive Ethernet and IP lines and are well positioned to see strong adoption.”
Coupled with its long-standing expertise in data communications services and its partnerships with leading third-party network equipment providers, the Aricent Cell-Site Aggregation solution is ideal for equipment manufacturers looking to quickly deliver a next-generation backhaul solution. The Aricent capabilities in the backhaul space include:
• IP Routing expertise for cell site operators
• Alternative Backhauls for cost effective / higher capacity backhauls (802.16, 802.20, DSL, MPLS, GigE)
• User Interface (UI) solutions
• Network Processor based solutions for interworking support between various technologies
• Remote Monitoring & Control and High Availability solutions for various technologies in the downstream and backhaul sections of the network
“From higher-quality mobile web browsing to the roll-out of rural wireless broadband solutions, the potential for new revenue streams for mobile operators is exponential,” said Sanjay Dhawan, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer, Aricent. “The introduction and general availability of the Aricent Cell-Site Aggregation solution is intended to address the gap between next generation mobile applications and the readiness of connectivity technology. We look forward to enabling our OEM clients to rapidly deliver this technology while minimizing their operational expenses.”
