Mountain View, A, United States, 2009/07/13 - Based on its recent analysis of the mobile backhaul market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Tellabs with the 2009 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Leadership for its mobile backhaul solution (Nasdaq: TLAB).
Tellabs' solutions are designed to migrate any mobile network to packet technology with carrier-class reliability and lower-cost ways to support 3G and 4G services. This is the first time Frost & Sullivan bestowed an award in this category.
Tellabs' mobile backhaul solutions enable wholesalers and wireless service providers to handle rapid growth in mobile commerce, gaming, e-mail, Internet and video traffic. By converging existing and new technologies onto a single platform, Tellabs helps customers manage traffic cost-efficiently. In fact, mid-sized service providers can save up to $231 million per year by moving to Ethernet backhaul and 60 percent to 93 percent in the long-term evolution of networks, compared with other solutions.
"Tellabs has established a technology lead in mobile backhaul with a solid product portfolio that addresses key requirements for migration and next-generation mobile networks," said Prayerna Raina, Frost & Sullivan research analyst. "Long-standing relationships with mobile providers throughout the world enable Tellabs to partner with its customers to strategically simplify mobile backhaul networks while improving overall network performance."
The comprehensive Tellabs solution addresses the core, distribution, and access parts of the network and can meet the requirements related to future applications as well as migration from legacy infrastructure.
"Tellabs is a leader in Ethernet synchronization and supports synchronization over packet with synchronous Ethernet," noted Raina. "With the Tellabs solution, the network elements are actually a part of the synchronization network and hence, the elements can distribute the clock to other elements in the network, greatly facilitating synchronization management."
Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in technology leadership within its industry by excelling in all stages of the technology life cycle - incubation, adaptation, take up, and maturity - to ensure a continuous flow of improvements. By innovating leading-edge concepts the company has pioneered client applications.
