PR - Oct 20, 2016 - Nokia mobile fronthaul solution supports edotco Malaysia customer transition to Centralized RAN to meet demand for mobile broadband
edotco Malaysia (edotco), will deploy Nokia’s mobile fronthaul optical technology as part of the company’s effort to support its customers’ migration to a Centralized RAN architecture with its shared, common radio tower for multiple mobile network operator customers.
The Nokia Mobile Fronthaul Solution allows edotco’s network operator customers to connect new or existing mobile radio equipment seamlessly into the edotco fiber network to better address growing mobile broadband demand. By optimizing existing fiber installations, rather than using new dark fiber, edotco can achieve significant CAPEX reduction versus traditional dark fiber approach.

By deploying Nokia’s Mobile Fronthaul Solution based on the 1830 Versatile WDM Module (VWM) portfolio, edotco can deploy a centralized RAN architecture with its shared, common radio tower or Base Transceiver Station Hotel (BTS) for multiple mobile network operator customers. A BTS Hotel aggregates fixed and wireless traffic resources into a single location to provide shared network connectivity to network operators. This relieves pressure on the network by reducing onsite equipment and is more efficient.
Wan Zainal Adileen, Managing Director of edotco Malaysia said: "Our customers are under constant pressure to meet increasing mobile broadband demands, and this creates tremendous pressure on our network infrastructure. In this environment, mobile operators are looking for new and innovative ways to increase network capacity and coverage, whilst achieving lower total cost of ownership. Nokia’s fronthaul platform gives us the flexibility to deploy assets efficiently by building a common shared infrastructure to reduce costs, in turn enabling our customers to migrate to a more simple and cost effective centralized RAN architecture.”
