SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Infinera, provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, and Platinum Core Solutions (PCS) announced the first deployment of the Infinera Mobile Fronthaul Solution in Malaysia. With the recently deployed Infinera Mobile Fronthaul Solution, PCS now offers mobile operators high-bandwidth mobile fronthaul as part of its innovative mobile wholesale service from the central office all the way to a shared cell tower.
Mobile operators in Malaysia are rapidly deploying 4G mobile services to support the massive growth of video, social media and cloud-based applications accessed via smart phones and tablets. To increase the amount of bandwidth available to subscribers, mobile operators are transforming their networks by deploying fiber to the cell tower and moving to a centralized or cloud-radio access network (C-RAN) architecture.
PCS deployed Infinera's Mobile Fronthaul Solution in its network to support customers as they migrate to the C-RAN architecture. The mobile fronthaul network is part of a wider wholesale offering that spans from the central office locations of PCS' customers to a new shared tower facility. By deploying Infinera's Mobile Fronthaul Solution, PCS can deliver an economically advantageous mobile network that supports multiple mobile operators using the same infrastructure.
PCS' new network is being constructed based on a multi-year commitment from one of Malaysia's leading mobile operators.
