OCTOBER 20, 2010 – Transmode says that ESB Telecoms is building a mobile backhaul wholesale network throughout its native Ireland, based on Transmode’s Native Packet Optical network architecture.

Initial customer reaction to the wholesale network has been “very positive,” Transmode says; multiple customers have signed up for new services, the systems provider adds. These initial customers include a major international mobile operator and a national wireless operator.

The new network will increase both the capacity and the flexibility of ESB Telecoms’ existing infrastructure and is designed to manage increasing volumes of mobile backhaul traffic from aggregation sites across Ireland. The network will use Transmode’s TM-Series Ethernet Muxponder II (EMXP II).

Transmode’s EMXP II will provide ESB Telecoms’ network with scalable bandwidth from 100 Mbps to multiple Gigabit Ethernet circuits per site. In addition it also provides demarcation of all Ethernet services and aggregation onto a 10G Ethernet ring.

"With our focus on high-capacity services and rapid service delivery, the ability to provide carrier class operation is critically important to ESB Telecoms," said Tom Bambury, ESB Telecoms' general manager. "Transmode’s solution will provide our team with better visibility and enable easier management of the mobile backhaul traffic at our primary sites. In addition it is a very economical solution and gives us Ethernet ring protection on all Layer 2 services. We will therefore be able to supply our prestige mobile service provider customers with a more economical and scalable wholesale offering.”
