NEC Announces “PASOLINK NEO iP,” a high capacity, highly intelligent, compact Microwave and Multi-service Switching Communications System ~ PASOLINK, Surpasses 1 million Shipments~

***For immediate use October 17, 2008

Tokyo, October 17, 2008- NEC Corporation today announced the availability of its latest addition to the “PASOLINK” ultra-compact microwave communications system, the “PASOLINK NEO iP,” which brings new levels of throughput and traffic engineering intelligence to backhaul transmission, and helps customers to transform their networks to scalable and cost effective hybrid and all-IP backhaul systems.

The new PASOLINK NEO series offers advanced, feature-rich functionality, which is required for the transport of 2G, 3G, HSPA, WiMAX and LTE traffic from radio access base stations to base station control systems. Featuring the industry’s most advanced QoS capabilities for its class, the PASOLINK iP uniquely enables backhaul revenue streams with SLA level bandwidth management, and guarantees backhaul sharing and premium content delivery. Designed for today’s aggregation and packet transformation needs, as well as future LTE topology switching and protection requirements, the NEO iP provides more than 1 Gbps of transmission capacity, native Ethernet framing, multi-service aggregation, PWE3 (Pseudo Wire Emulation Edge to Edge), traffic engineering features, MPLS switching, network synchronization functions, GbE ring protection and much more.

Mobile backhaul is currently undergoing two major transformations. First, the introduction of HSPA (High Speed Packet Access) is dramatically increasing data transmission, and secondly, networks are transitioning to IP in order to cost effectively transport the growing volume of data. The PASOLINK NEO family enables mobile network operators that are seeking to optimize the delivery and use of mobile backhaul systems to efficiently provide consumers with high capacity data services at a lower overall cost.

The PASOLINK microwave family of products has become a foundation for backhaul networks that are now critical for supporting infrastructure in the broadband services age, especially overseas. As of September 2008, the shipments of PASOLINK, have surpassed more than 1 million total units. As network and service needs evolve, NEC will continue to deliver leading, reliable and practical services that enhance the intelligence of backhaul systems, and provide end to end transport and management solutions.
