The growing need for mobile radio equipment has brought with it the need for more mobile backhaul to keep the mobile radio connected to the core network the operators are putting out. Newer 3G systems, increasing densities of 4G systems, and of course the steadily-growing rise of LTE (News - Alert) are putting ever-increasing demands on keeping networks not only intact, but expanding.
Transition's Packetband-TDM line looks to capitalize on current gains while helping to power the gains of the future, and help keep the network robust for some time to come.
Transition's Packetband-TDM line has a variety of useful applications for mobile networks, especially for those who are looking to bring in TDM on packet convergence, get TDM over fiber circuits, or even bring in all-IP / Ethernet intelligent demarcation devices. There's something worth considering in the lineup.
Transition's offerings will not only protect current investments in TDM – there's nothing quite so unpleasant as having to scuttle an entire lineup of hardware because someone switched a standard; just ask anyone who bought an HD-DVD player – but they'll also allow for a painless and inexpensive migration to different network transport technologies like MPLS, IP and Ethernet from one platform.
Naturally, service providers want the best in backhaul to make sure their upgrades to 4G / LTE get the most bang for their buck, and that's why a lot of users look to Transition.
Better yet, Transition has a variety of different models to choose from depending on the more specific needs of the individual user. While each model has certain features in common, including the ability to independently provision certain connectivity types like SOAM, IEEE (News - Alert) 802.3ah, and several others, some models will offer up even more capability. Transition's S6120, for example, will offer support for Small Form Pluggable transceivers, though they must be used in pairs, one for the local ION Platform and a standalone device at the remote location of choice.
Meanwhile, the S3240 works with MEF (News - Alert) and IEEE standards, but also brings in multiple power inputs to ensure operation as well as extended operating temperatures for added robustness. It's even fanless for power conservation.
Mobile radio is steadily gaining. There are simply too many mobile devices out there with too many mobile data plans and the like – not to mention the accelerated rise of mobile VoIP and the like – to make mobile radio less valuable than it already is over time, and it's only likely to get more so barring some kind of impressive advancement in the field.
Transition has plenty of solid models waiting, so for those looking to make some adjustments in their mobile radio profile, it's a great place to start the search for the best in components.
