Tellabs expands 3G Mobile Backhaul in Spain

Spanish mobile operator Yoigo (Madrid, Spain) is expanding and increasing the capacity of its 3G network, aiming to triple its customers and gain 10% of the Spanish market by 2015. Yoigo selected equipment manufacturer Tellabs (Naperville, Ill., U.S.A.) 8600 Managed Edge System to manage the anticipated increase in data traffic.

The nationwide expansion of Yoigo's mobile backhaul network – managed by Ericsson Spain – will consist of over 100 Radio Access Network (RAN) nodes. Ericsson will implement the Tellabs 8630 Access Switch and Tellabs 8660 Edge Switch network elements to aggregate 3G traffic, enabling Yoigo to evolve to an all-IP network.

Yoigo will also deploy the Tellabs 8000 Intelligent Network Manager, which aims to enable the company to provision mobile services faster and more easily, according to Yoigo. The deployment is expected to be completed by 2012.

Yoigo is 76.6% owned by TeliaSonera, a telecoms operator in the Nordic and Baltic region. Yoigo currently has approximately 2.5 million subscribers.

In 2011, Tellabs has announced major mobile backhaul deployments with two largest operators in Russia – MTS and Megafon.
