The TMC Labs Innovation Award honors products that display unique features and significant contributions toward improving communications technology. The awards are bestowed to those companies demonstrating groundbreaking contributions to the communications industry.
“We are extremely proud that HFR Networks’ Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) platform was recognized by TMC Labs,” stated Paul Crann, CEO, HFR Networks. “This award highlights the vital role that packet-based, TSN solutions will play in solving complex and critical challenges as service providers continue to expand wireless capacity and offerings, including deploying advanced 5G services.”
Today, service providers realize they must evolve radio transport and access architectures to quickly and cost-effectively meet the demand for increased capacity on existing 4G LTE networks in parallel with launching new 5G and expanded Ethernet services. HFR Networks’ M-Series TSN Switch, the industry’s first Radio over Ethernet (RoE) RAN xHaul solution, was developed to address advanced mobile network requirements, including blending time-sensitive mobile traffic with other Ethernet services on a converged network using CPRI, eCPRI and Ethernet multiplexing. Supporting both traditional and cloud-based NFV mobile architectures, HFR Networks’ solution delivers operational flexibility and performance while optimizing fiber capacity. Utilizing HFR Networks’ TSN platform, operators can accelerate time to market, ensure a smooth evolution to 5G and create additional revenue streams by enabling new services, while also substantially reducing their total cost of ownership (TCO).
HFR Networks’ M-Series TSN solution benefits include:
- Significant cost savings with substantial reduction in deployment and operational costs,
- Standards-based packet xHaul to normalize operations across radio solutions from third-party suppliers,
- 75% reduction in space requirements versus traditional transponder based fronthaul equipment,
- Greater performance, facilitating a fast and seamless evolution to 5G with the enablement of dynamic spectrum sharing to support 4G/5G/Ethernet services across common fiber and transport infrastructure.
“TMC Labs Innovation Award recognizes the best and the most unique products and services this industry has to offer.
