Leading Russian operator MTS has tapped Intracom to supply its mmWave outdoor Ethernet radios.
MTS Russia selected the specific systems through an international tender, as it prepares for future growth for its 4G+ network, upgrading the offered capacity to its subscribers at street level locations.
Intracom’s Streetnode -V60and Ultralink-FX80 systems operate in the 60 GHz and 70/80GHz bands respectively and ideally address applications ranging from Small-Cell Backhaul to Macrocell Backhaul and Fronthaul. Both systems provide leading capacity (up to 3 Gbps for Ultralink-FX80 and 1.7Gbit/s for Streetnode-V60) and can be deployed easily on lamp posts or walls, as well as on rooftops and telecommunication towers.
Athanasios Antoulinakis, General Director of Intracom Svyaz, said: “MTS can take advantage of the compact size, multiple interfaces and flexible powering capabilities of these radios for fast and easy installation. The systems’ Auto-Alignment and ‘Zero-Touch’ provisioning via a Bluetooth-connected Android Tablet, enable rapid, cost effective and error-free link deployment."
