HONG KONG, March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- UTStarcom (NASDAQ: UTSI), a global telecommunications infrastructure provider, continues to deliver on its promise of creating products that embody its "Simple Network, Simple Operation" philosophy with the launch of its latest MPLS-TP and carrier Ethernet-based packet optical transport network product to help telecommunications carriers quickly and easily deploy new technology and services to meet the rapidly evolving needs of consumers.
The Company formally launched its TN765 packet optical transport product in March, bolstering UTStarcom's TN700 product family that is the bedrock of its broadband infrastructure business. This launch closely follows the August 2013 debut of the TN701, an Ethernet Access Device (EAD), which extends UTStarcom's TN series to the network edge. These products demonstrate the strength of UTStarcom's product pipeline and ability to commercialize innovations that improve quality of service, network throughput maximization and operational efficiency to create a new class of telecommunications network infrastructure.
"We continue to expand the TN700 series product platform with innovations that demonstrate our technical leadership and further strengthen our competitive market position," said William Wong, UTStarcom's Chief Executive Officer. "Our technical superiority is a key driver of our growth as we commercialize technical breakthroughs that make us more valuable to our customers. This new entry to our TN series also provides a 'future proof' upgrade path to our SOOTM Software Defined Networking platform."
Maintaining Leadership in Broadband Infrastructure Design
UTStarcom's latest broadband technology innovations are specifically geared toward the advanced needs of its customer base of telecommunications and broadband service providers who need to bulk up their networks to handle "4G" traffic and meet consumers' growing desire for mobile, video and "on demand" entertainment. The TN700 line offers new features to allow quicker deployment, greater reliability and improved network operational efficiency, while reducing cost significantly.
The TN765 builds on the attributes and features of UTStarcom's TN700 product family. These include:
- MPLS-TP and Carrier Ethernet technologies
- Carrier-class sub 50ms protection
- QoS/SLA guarantees
- Centralized network management capabilities
- Network-wide time/clock synchronization
- High bandwidth efficiency of packet networks
- 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) support
The innovations that the TN765 product adds to this product platform including enhanced throughput (1Tbps) to support higher aggregation levels, 100 GE interface support and multiple 10GE interfaces for more efficient network deployment.
Commercial Deployment Underway
Shipments of the TN765 began earlier in March for its first commercial deployment. It will be used to support the network of a tier-one carrier in Japan, which has one of the most advanced mobile and fixed line Internet and communications networks worldwide.
"This deployment is a strong endorsement of our broadband technology and shows our ability to support Internet and communications traffic on one of the world's most sophisticated networks," said Mr. Wong. "It will demonstrate to telecom carriers worldwide how we can help them transition to a '4G' and 'on demand' world."
