RICHARDSON, Texas — July 29, 2021 — Fujitsu Community Communications, Inc. and HFR Networks, Inc. at the moment launched new and enhanced Good xHaul options for versatile, cost-efficient, scalable 5G community transport. Enhancements embrace new progressive optics for the M6424 time delicate networking (TSN) aggregation and transport change —which is in use with a Tier 1 U.S. service supplier because the lead buyer — and the brand new M6208E TSN change for hardened environments.
As service suppliers ramp up 5G service, and start to merge radio entry community (RAN) site visitors throughout legacy 4G frequencies and newly acquired C-band spectrum, Cloud RAN (C-RAN) transport requires excessive efficiency and optimized economics to scale capability effectively per macro cell web site. The improved M6424 delivers as much as 400G transport capability with the brand new xWave 400G optical resolution for high-capacity TSN with precision time protocol (PTP) over a single fiber. This vital improve in transport effectivity ends in an 8 to 1 fiber financial savings, with a pay-as-you-grow resolution provisioned in 100G increments.
Furthermore, the M6424 change consists of integration of 10Gbps/25Gbps Good Tunable Optics, providing a strong “semi-active” transport resolution when cell web site energy and house challenges exist. The M6424 makes use of its administration software program to entry the good self-tuning optics for automated turn-up and distant visibility at passive cell websites, permitting proactive Operations, Administration and Administration (OA&M) capabilities, leading to excessive availability providers assist. On this manner, optics may be disaggregated from the transport system and plugged immediately into radios at house constrained or zoning-restricted places equivalent to lamp posts, utility poles or constructing facades, fixing challenges associated to energy, aesthetics and house.
The brand new M6208E change is a scalable, high-capacity TSN change in a compact, hardened enclosure for out of doors plant wall or pole mounting, constructed for fast web site deployment in difficult situations starting from rural cell websites to constrained environments, equivalent to subways or venues. The versatile M6208E reduces fiber wants by enabling service mixing throughout legacy 3G or 4G LTE widespread public radio interface (CPRI) infrastructure at distant radio heads with 5G enhanced CPRI site visitors and Ethernet providers on a typical RAN.
“As service suppliers face the complexities of constructing out ubiquitous 5G protection, they want operational flexibility with larger effectivity and efficiency. Leveraging TSN and progressive optics optimized for xHaul permits vital price financial savings, enterprise agility and quicker time to market,” mentioned Paul Havala, vice chairman of know-how enterprise unit, Fujitsu Community Communications, Inc. “The mix of Fujitsu’s integration providers and HFR Networks’ standards-compliant know-how empowers versatile Good xHaul options with centralized administration throughout a number of RAN sorts to assist all kinds of 5G transport use instances.”
“HFR Networks continues to take heed to prospects as we develop our flexiHaul options portfolio,” mentioned Paul Crann, chief govt officer, HFR Networks. “These enhanced switching options assist operators to speed up 5G protection to extra places, together with websites that require rugged, passive or compact options with the power to converge a number of providers onto widespread infrastructure.”
As an HFR Networks’ associate, Fujitsu gives the M6424, xWave 400G and M6208E switching options as a part of its Good xHaul transport portfolio, together with community integration and administration providers.
