NEC Corporation has received orders from Turkcell for its iPASOLINK iX all outdoor ultra-compact microwave radio systems. NEC’s iPASOLINK iX will be used for the network infrastructure of the LTE services Turkcell, which is scheduled to launch on 1 April 2016 in Turkey.

Turkey has experienced a rapid increase in communications traffic due to the widespread adoption of smartphones and tablet devices. In response, telecom carriers are working to introduce high-speed and high-capacity networks, including the launch of LTE services.

Following the spectrum auction held in Turkey at the end of August 2015, Turkcell is set to become the only operator in the country to reach 375 Mbps mobile internet speed on LTE as of 1 April 2016.

iPASOLINK iX is a radio transmission system which supports frequencies from the 6GHz band to the 42GHz band and can be applied to a wide range of networks, from access to aggregation.

It also features unique NEC technology in the shape of its sub-band free feature, which means frequency bands that usually need to be configured at the factory prior to shipping can now be configured or modified at the installation location or remotely after shipping.

This enables carriers to respond flexibly to various situations, such as delays in allocating usable frequency bands, or sudden changes to allocated frequency bands.
