The Eclipse platform seamlessly supports TDM, as well as carrier-grade Ethernet data traffic, using the platform’s Liquid Bandwidth™ software-scalable capacity migration capability. The extensive use of the nodal architecture gives MagtiCom the ability to configure TDM or Ethernet services as and where needed, under software control. The unique feature set offered by the Eclipse platform allows flexible network expansion that is adaptable to the changing needs of MagtiCom to accommodate next-generation IP-based services. The network is controlled and monitored by Harris Stratex’ ProVision Element Management System (EMS), which provides advanced features such as circuit provisioning and network health reporting.
“Choosing the Eclipse platform was a logical process for us, considering our long-term relationship with Harris Stratex Networks,” said David L. Lee, chief executive officer, MagtiCom. “The company continues to deliver the most advanced point-to-point microwave radio technology available. While we restructure our growing network to roll out 2G, 3G, CDMA and WiMAX services for our 1.8 million subscribers, the high product flexibility and quality, and the excellent support that Harris Stratex provides, will be key. This is not just a supplier, this is a partner that is helping us optimize our transmission network to remain competitive for the future.”
“We are very pleased to continue our long-term relationship with MagtiCom,” said Harald Braun, chief executive officer, Harris Stratex. “The MagtiCom transmission network needs are very diverse, and Eclipse is the ideal platform to support the mixture of TDM and native-Ethernet traffic backhaul. The selection by MagtiCom is a great testament to the flexibility the Eclipse solution provides for legacy 2G applications, current 3G rollouts and future 4G networks, such as WiMAX.”
