Airtel has selected Alcatel Lucent to create CEN based IP access network which will now enable Airtel to deliver faster mobile broadband speeds to its customers.
This IP network will allow Bharti Airtel to meet the surging bandwidth requirements of customers while accessing data, video and Internet services on an array of devices, such as smart-phones, tablets and laptops.
The key elements of the Bharti Airtel mobile backhaul network are Alcatel-Lucent’s 7750 Service Router, 7705 Service Aggregation Router (SAR) and 5620 Service Aware Manager. They are the cornerstones of Alcatel-Lucent’s leading Mobile Backhaul solution, offering a highly scalable, converged support for 2G, 3G, and 4G/LTE and reliable end-to-end solution deployed by more than 120 operators globally.
With ever growing 'data' demand for both personal & enterprise broadband services set to soar further, Bharti Airtel's CEN (carrier-grade Ethernet)-based IP access network will help the company to offer its customers various services such as video streaming, high speed data , social network-based applications, online gaming, video conferencing and online collaboration.
Additionally this network would also be catering to the DSL broadband as well as 2G/3G/4G voice and data traffic making it a true converged network.
