HFCL serves up IP MPLS routers and high-count fiber cable lines

Oct. 30, 2023
The company unveiled a new suite of network solutions at the India Mobile Congress (IMC) 2023.

HFCL took advantage of the India Mobile Congress (IMC) 2023 to introduce a new set of products, including an IP MPLS router line and a unique optical fiber cable line.

To address the connectivity needs and bandwidth challenges faced by telcos and enterprises, HFCL launched a new IP MPLS Routers product line.

The company’s new IP MPLS Router product line aims to empower telcos to backhaul 5G and fiber broadband networks and provide last-mile connectivity to enterprises in urban metros and tier 2 cities. This IP MPLS Router portfolio will help HFCL’s customers build scalable and efficient networks capable of handling different types of data traffic, support Quality of Service (QoS) for bandwidth prioritization and avoid network congestion.  

HFCL has also introduced its 1728-high-fiber count Intermittently Bonded Ribbon (IBR) Optical Fiber Cable that will allow telcos and enterprises to accelerate the installation of 5G network infrastructure, expand FTTH capabilities and address the rising demand for high-capacity networks, particularly from hyper-scale data centers. The gel-free IBR cable is also optimized with high-productivity mass fusion splicing for cost-efficient deployment, easy installation in congested areas and quick restoration in case of any accidental outage.

The vendor is also addressing the broadband wireless networking opportunity with its 5G FWA (Fixed Wireless Access), unlicensed band radio (UBR) and CPE (Customer Premise Equipment).

HFCL’s UBR is a low-latency, 2 Gbps connectivity solution that can operate across an extended 5GHz frequency range. The company claims that in contrast to traditional backhaul solutions, 5G wireless backhauling with 2 Gbps UBR will enable HFCL’s customers to save up to 75% on the total cost of ownership (TCO). HFCL’s Indoor and Outdoor 5G FWA CPE products will accelerate wireless broadband penetration in urban and rural areas and help bridge the last-mile connectivity challenge in critical global markets.

“To address the requirements of countries to fast-track digital transformation by building a robust 5G network infrastructure, we launched our comprehensive ensemble of next-gen technologies including 5G FWA CPE, IP MPLS Routers, 2Gbps UBR along with UcNMS and 1728-high fiber IBR Optical Fiber Cable,” said Mahendra Nahata, Managing Director of HFCL.
