BATM awarded contract by major mobile operator in Asia Pacific
BATM Advanced Communications Limited (LSE: BVC; TASE: BATM), a leading provider of real-time technologies for networking solutions and medical laboratory systems, is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned Telco Systems (“Telco”) subsidiary has been awarded a contract, valued at approximately $2m, by a major mobile operator in the Asia Pacific region to deploy an advanced mobile backhaul demarcation device. This is as part of the mobile operator’s large-scale network modernisation that will deliver 4G/LTE services to an expanding subscriber base.
Under the terms of the contract, the Group will deploy its T-Marc 3208SH advanced mobile backhaul demarcation device in 2014 and 2015. The device, which backhauls traffic from multiple 2G, 3G and 4G cell sites over Carrier Ethernet, was selected for its large port density, flexible ports distribution and LAG capabilities that enable the mobile operator to accommodate the network expansion. In addition, its support of NETCONF and YANG, in parallel with SNMP and CLI-based management, will facilitate the mobile operator in transitioning into SDN.
Dr. Zvi Marom, CEO of BATM, said: “We are delighted to have been selected for this contract, which reflects the strength of our technology as well as validating our previously-stated strategy of focusing on major customers and SDN. As 4G/LTE deployments proliferate, simplifying network management is becoming a critical issue for mobile operators, and we look forward to expanding on this project and benefiting from further opportunities.”
