FEBRUARY 17, 2010 -- Telco Systems in Mansfield, Mass., a provider of Carrier Ethernet access & aggregation solutions, is rolling out a wireless backhaul strategy to help telecommunications carriers upgrade from 2G to 4G networks without maintaining separate network facilities to support legacy TDM voice services.

The roadmap includes a 10/40 Gigabit Ethernet aggregation platforms and cell site gateways that blend timing mechanisms including SyncE, Precision Time Protocol (PTP-1588v2), GPS, and legacy clock distribution schemes.

These solutions provide the ability to interwork between schemes to enable carriers to move from one synchronization scheme to another across the network.

“The growth of smartphone adoption and the resulting increase in mobile data traffic has led to an exploding demand for mobile broadband,” says Dave Lee, vice president of business development for Telco Systems. “The combined need for greater bandwidth and lower costs has compelled mobile network operators to look to Ethernet technology to preserve their legacy voice infrastructure while taking advantage of the cost and scalability benefits that packet-based technologies promise.”

The company also will incorporate transport options like EVC multiplexing using IEEE 802.1ad Provider Bridges, MPLS, H-VPLS, VPLS, and several resiliency mechanisms including FRR, G.8031/G.8032, Fast Ring, xSTP, LAG, and LACP.

The company's MEF 18 certified CES technology will support seamless transport of TDM frames over the packet switched network, enabling providers to backhaul their 2G/3G cell site voice traffic alongside 2G/3G/4G cell site data traffic and L2VPN service over Carrier Ethernet transport in the same device.
