Ericsson is the world’s leading manufacturer of microwave radio transmission and optical transport and switching equipment and MMX are delighted to be able to offer the complete Ericsson MINI-LINK and SPo1400 product families.

MINI-LINK – Microwave Radio

There is a MINI-LINK solution to fit any requirement and the industry transforming interoperability between the different models in MINI-LINK range enables deployment, evolution and migration of networks in a cost-efficient, step-by-step fashion, and fully supports the concept of lowest cost of ownership.

The MINI-LINK range comprises:

  • MINI-LINK TN, a modular solution for evolving networks providing transport technology flexibility and integrated traffic handling, provides gigabit capacity at telecom grade availability.  MINI-LINK TN supports Native Ethernet as well as Native TDM, or a mix of the two.  Options include an integrated Ethernet switch enabling aggregation of the Ethernet traffic, and an integrated cross connect and switching function minimizing cabling and reducing site complexity
  • MINI-LINK CN, compact and cost efficient hop solutions for microwave transport optimized for end sites, single hops, and enterprise markets
  • MINI-LINK PT, all outdoor solutions for packet microwave transport
  • MINI-LINK SP, multi access aggregation node and indoor unit for MINI-LINK PT.  It provides a seamless migration path from TDM circuit to the next-generation packet-switched networks. Switching capacity ranges from 8 Gbps to 60 Gbps full duplex, non blocking.
  • MINI-LINK LH, an Ethernet Trunk Radio providing high capacities over long hops.  It provides multiple Gigabit capacities over one antenna and contains an integrated high capacity Ethernet switch and Carrier Grade Quality of Service. The Adaptive Modulation enables substantially higher average traffic capacity than standard SDH trunk systems, and it also has an integrated short haul capability

SPO1400 – Optical Transport and Switching

At some point, every telecom service transits the metro network. Operators are continuously upgrading their metro capacity to meet the unyielding demand for video, mobile broadband and cloud-based services. For low total cost of ownership (TCO), operators require metro convergence, ensuring that all services flow over one network and one platform with one management system. For IP services, the converged network must be simple and scalable, with superior performance. At the same time, operators need to modernize existing multi-technology networks effectively to a single optical packet network for all services. The Ericsson SPO 1400 product family helps you tackle all these challenges.

SPO1400 provides a flexible TDM and IP network solution within a single shelf with industry leading port density and very low power requirements.  From E1 up to STM-16 and 10GE ports and DWM interface for high capacity networks

The Ericsson SPO 1400 is a family of multi-service and optical packet transport solutions for Metro networks comprising: SPO 1410 POTP – Metro Access/Aggregation and SPO 1460 POTP – Metro Access/Aggregation and Core.

The SPO1400 benefits include:

  • Hybrid Packet-TDM/OTN-WDM architecture
  • Lowest TCO for metro modernization and convergence
  • Connection-oriented Ethernet with MPLS
  • MEF 9- and 14-compliant
  • MEF CE 2.0 certified for E-Line and E-Access
  • Legacy TDM-based service support
  • Simple and easy WDM scalability
  • Highest capacity density and lowest power profile
  • Service rates from E1 to 100GE
  • Support LTE MBH and data center connectivity
