NAPERVILLE, Ill. -- Manitoba NetSet will use Tellabs to provide 4G wireless broadband to rural Canadians throughout the province of Manitoba. By the end of the year, over 500 Manitoba communities and municipalities will benefit from the Tellabs SmartCore(R) 9100 platform. The platform, acting as the packet core in the network, will manage subscriber IP traffic, and help with increased content and capacity needs through smart analytics and traffic management.

The platform's intelligence and flexibility will provide Manitoba NetSet's residential and commercial users with an optimized 4G wireless network. Initially, Tellabs and Manitoba NetSet will base the 4G wireless network on WiMAX. When LTE standards become available in Canada, the network can be software-upgraded to LTE.

"The first of its kind in the province, our 4G wireless broadband network will give unserved or underserved rural users access to a high-speed network that is positioned for LTE," said Dean Hardy, chief technology officer at Manitoba NetSet. "The Tellabs SmartCore(R) 9100 platform will enable us to gain visibility into the network, to differentiate and personalize services for a higher-quality user experience."
