NEC Corporation has concluded a framework agreement with T-Mobile Czech Republic for iPASOLINK EX, NEC’s outdoor, integrated, ultra-compact microwave communications system supporting 70-80GHz band communications (E-Band). Under this agreement, NEC will provide T-Mobile Czech Republic with iPASOLINK EX over the next three years.
Affiliated with Deutsche Telekom AG, a major European telecommunications operator, T-Mobile Czech Republic is a leading Czech Republic telecommunications carrier boasting 5.6 million subscribers that is taking measures aimed at accommodating the surge in data traffic stemming from the immense popularity of smartphones and tablets.
iPASOLINK EX is a compact, lightweight product that occupies a small footprint and is easy to install throughout a wide range of outdoor areas, thereby allowing fast construction of stable, high-speed network environments wherever needed.
Furthermore, it supports a high modulation method (256QAM - Quadrature Amplitude Modulation), which enables 1.6Gbps (with 250MHz bandwidth CS) of high-capacity transmissions through the radio.
Vladimir Klein, technology director, T-Mobile Czech Republic said: “In order to provide our customers with the best mobile internet, we constantly look for ways to manage increasing data traffic. NEC’s iPASOLINK EX fulfills our requirements for quality and the future capacity demands of our mobile backhaul network.”
“We are honoured that T-Mobile chose iPASOLINK EX for their mobile backhaul network" said Nicolae Varvara, president, NEC Eastern Europe. “We consider this agreement a recognition of iPASOLINK EX’s superior technology and will continue to support T-Mobile with our exceptional technologies.”
Going forward, NEC will continue to provide network systems and services to global customers, by focusing on areas in which NEC is able to demonstrate the strength of its IT and network assets.
