Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: VTSS), a leading provider of advanced IC solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks, and Fibrolan, a leading developer of integrated mobile backhaul solutions and Carrier Ethernet systems, announced a technology demonstration for low power, wirespeed performance in 4G/LTE mobile backhaul networks. Vitesse and Fibrolan will feature the Falcon series products small cell backhaul demonstration at Mobile World Congress, February 25-28, 2013 in Barcelona, Spain. Fibrolan is located in Hall 5, Stand 5i94.
Fibrolan’s µFalcon-S, Falcon-M and Falcon-X platforms deliver a low power, highly accurate IEEE1588 (1588) timing and synchronization solution for small cells, critical for backhauling LTE/LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) traffic. Powered by Vitesse’s Carrier Ethernet Switch engines with VeriTime™ and CEServices™ software stack, the Falcon was recently certified by the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) as Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) compliant. The Fibrolan platform delivers the most comprehensive solution for small cells backhaul including:
“Carrier-grade performance at low power is a must for 4G LTE backhaul solutions, particularly for small cells,” said Shamir Stein, CEO of Fibrolan. “Vitesse’s Carrier Ethernet Chipset and CEServices software were the clear choice as the platform for Fibrolan’s second generation Falcon series, as they delivered an industry-leading timing solution, required in mobile networks, with a quick path to CE 2.0 certification of our equipment.”
“Small cells become critical for carriers to grow both coverage and capacity in their 4G LTE networks as demand for LTE-capable devices surges,” said Uday Mudoi, product marketing director at Vitesse. “With Vitesse’s CE 2.0-ready, low power device and software solutions enabling carrier-grade small cell backhaul, we are that much closer to true ubiquitous 4G mobile connectivity. Fibrolan’s technology demonstration and CE 2.0 certification of their equipment is clear indication of the maturity of Vitesse’s solution.”
Fibrolan is an experienced and innovative vendor of Mobile Backhauling and Carrier Ethernet access solutions, delivering networking products since 1996. The company’s recent second generation Falcon is highly optimized for LTE backhaul and aggregation, with the Falcon-M series designed to meet the challenges of Small Cells backhaul (indoor and outdoor). Fibrolan also delivers optical transmission solutions that complement the Falcon series in access applications.
