Get the mobile backhaul network solution deployed by over 170 customers worldwide

Advance wireless backhaul solutions with small cells and SON

It's no secret that the world's mobile operators face skyrocketing user demand for broadband, new small cell and self-organizing network deployments in mobile backhaul. Faster 3G and 4G networks, along with competitive service pricing, compelling smartphones and connected tablets, have come together to create the perfect storm for the mobile broadband business.

That's why Vodafone, together with over 167 service providers around the world, chose Tellabs to launch a smarter mobile backhaul networks. It boosted network performance, reined in costs and offered new mobile services to more than 200 million subscribers around the world.

One of Scandinavia's largest mobile operators, NetCom in Norway, uses Tellabs® 8600 Smart Routers to keep 4G backhaul costs at 3G levels. NetCom launched one of the world's first LTE networks, offering new mobile services to some 1.2 million subscribers.

The Tellabs® 8600 Smart Routers offer 99,9999% availability with carrier-class, built-in synchronization features on a single platform. Your customers can enjoy high-quality mobile Internet and video services to go.

Tellabs helps you advance to smarter mobile network cost-effectively. We offer flexible, cost-efficient options to deliver new mobile data, Internet and video services.

The Tellabs® 8600 Smart Routers enable you to:

  • Scale up mobile backhaul networks from small cell aggregation to hundreds on Gigabits at gateway sites.
  • Introduce self-organizing networks in mobile backhaul with true plug-and-play functionality.
