Ericsson Launches Traffic Node to Increase Backbone Capacity

Ericsson has introduced MINI-LINK Traffic Node, a scalable microwave aggregation node for mobile networks. Ericsson says that the new node provides a ten-fold increase in aggregated transport capacity, while enhancing network quality, flexibility and control, and reducing site space by up to 70%. Increasing the capacity of microwave transport networks – by far the most common technology used to carry traffic between radio base stations and other parts of the mobile network – traditionally involves extensive manual re-configuration, more equipment and additional installation and maintenance costs.

Ericsson MINI-LINK Traffic Node addresses these issues by providing highly scalable, cost-effective capacity that is configurable from a central management system, with greatly reduced space requirements. The system can be scaled from a small, flexible node to one that provides capacity for up to [RSA1] 18 microwave links in one magazine, with a total aggregated transport capacity of up to 400Mbit/s.

“The top priority of most mobile operators today is to increase capacity and maintain high service quality at the lowest possible cost,” said Sivert Bergman, General Manager of Ericsson’s Transmission and Transport Unit. “The new MINI-LINK Traffic Node enables operators with microwave networks to meet the new traffic demands of high-bandwidth, voice and data-oriented 2.5G and 3G mobile services at a lower cost and with increased network control than previously possible. Likewise, new mobile operators can deploy the solution as a highly flexible, integrated and cost-effective backhaul resource.”

MINI-LINK Traffic Node, as with other MINI-LINK solutions, is based on open standards, making it fully compatible with networks from other suppliers.

MINI-LINK Traffic Node will be commercially available in the third quarter of 2003.”
