Mobile Transport

Drive UBB and IoT service evolution with an efficient and responsive ‘anyhaul’ mobile transport network

Use our 5G-ready Mobile Transport solutions to address connectivity challenges created by more and increasingly diverse radio sites, architectures, services, and traffic.

Keeping pace with demand for ultra broadband (UBB) and Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities requires continuous upgrades. To stay competitive, you need to:

  • Take advantage of licensed and unlicensed spectrum, new radio and packet core architectures, and densification with small cells
  • Deliver an expanded range of tailored services for IoT, video, and converged access
  • Prepare for 5G while using 4.5G and 4.9G to create additional opportunities for your business.

These advances are increasing demand for ”anyhaul” connectivity, including fronthaul, backhaul, and backbone network applications. Our solutions ease the pressure on your transport network by allowing you to:

  • Reach more sites, deliver more traffic, and meet the stringent latency requirements of centralized and cloud RANs
  • Support advanced mobile and wireless applications with widely varying service characteristics and use cases
  • Support cloud-native packet core solutions and software-defined networking (SDN)
  • Meet increasing expectations relative to quality, reliability, and security.

Our transport networking solutions are efficient, responsive, and purpose-built for mobile. They address evolving mobile and wireless service requirements – today and in the future.


How can your business benefit from 5G-ready mobile transport?

  • Complete flexibility: Support diverse site requirements, new radio architectures, and an expanding range of service-level agreements.
  • Endless scalability: Boost network performance when and where you need to – quickly and easily and at an appropriate cost.
  • End-to-end programmability: Cut through network complexity so you can connect new sites quickly and interconnect applications dynamically.

What analysts are saying

"With the advent of 5G just around the corner, mobile operators are looking forward to a new era of denser radio networks, new spectrum, dramatically higher bandwidth and ultra-low latency. But for all its promise, 5G will make transport networks infinitely more complex, requiring extreme flexibility across the entire network spanning fronthaul, backhaul and core. A programmable, end-to-end transport network that can accommodate a variety of 5G use cases such as SmartGrid and the Internet of Things as well as 2G/3G and LTE will be a crucial part of any operator’s solution."
