Bite Latvia Mobile deploys ZTE’s IP PTN

Bite Latvia Mobile, Baltic region’s mobile operator has deployed ZTE’s IP PTN (packet transport network) equipment.

The company has announced the successful modernisation of Bite Latvia Mobile’s transport network. All the original SDH/TDM (synchronous digital hierarchy/time division multiplexing) network devices have been replaced with ZTE’s full IP PTN (packet transport network) equipment, connecting the operators GSM and UMTS communications over MEF (managed extensibility framework) certified E-Line services.

The project covers the whole of Latvia and will dramatically improve Bite Latvia’s ability to deliver integrated solutions.

Due to increasing demand for data services, the original TDM transmission network could not meet the demand created by the latest IP services and applications. The new ZTE ZXCTN series next generation PTN equipment enables Bite Latvia Mobile to cope with the growing demand.

Bite Lavia Mobile’s new mobile backhaul network has adapted the latest multi-protocol label switching transport profile (MPLS-TP) technology. As a result it is more stable, reliable and offers improved transmission efficiency, effectively expanding the operator’s GSM and UMTS mobile service coverage area.

ZTE also provided theNetNumen U31, a powerful unified network management system, which has enabled the transport network to become more visible and predictable for all services, and also enables very fast end-to-end operations and maintenance and troubleshooting, dramatically reducing the challenges and the cost of operating and maintaining the network.

“It was a truly challenging project for Bite and ZTE, involving suppliers from different fields, including wireless RAN, microwave and PTN transmissions”, said Modestas Rope, director of Bite Latvia’s transport department.

“ZTE’s ZXCTN series PTN products and solution have been hugely effective and enabled us to meet the demands of our growing customer base. The ZTE team was tasked with developing an integrated access platform, and the unified network management now provides end-to-end network manageability, making it easy to maintain the network and identify faults,” added Rope.
