Italtel, Linkra to jointly offer IP microwave systems

Aims to expand joint activities in EMEA and Latin America markets

By CBR Staff Writer

Italtel, a provider of next generation networks and services, and Linkra Networks, a wireless backhaul provider, has partnered to jointly provide mobile network operators, converged service providers, wireless internet service providers (WISP), utilities and large enterprises with full IP microwave next generation systems.

Both companies will focus their joint activities on EMEA and Latin America markets, in particular Brazil and Argentina.

The partnership aims to upgrade the wireless backhauling infrastructure to IP as service providers broaden their coverage and cope with the demand for data rate growth forcing to deploy higher capacity distribution and access wireless networks.

It leverages Linkra’s full IP Microwave for mobile backhauling and the expertise that Italtel has acquired in next generation network architecture both in EMEA and Latin America as well as valuable expertise in system integration, voice over IP and wired & wireless technology.

Linkra Networks Full Ethernet Microwave Portfolio, which is part of proven microwave-optics-routers integration for Backhauling offerings, can be integrated in different networks from enterprise ones to next generation and mobile networks.

Italtel head of Cisco-OEM Products & Solutions Product Unit Camillo Ascione said the agreement with Linkra has a two-fold relevance for Italtel: it is an important step of their plan to develop into specific foreign markets, particularly LatAm, and allows them to reinforce their offer in the mobile segment.

Linkra head of IP&Transport Business Unit Tiziano Beretta said the relationship with Italtel is part of their strategy to become a leader in Full IP Microwave offerings and speed up Linkra access in LatAm countries completing its own worldwide sales presence.

"Linkra full IP Microwave portfolio, interworking with Carrier Ethernet router/switch devices, will benefit of Italtel IT System Integration knowledge complementing our proven capability on Backhauling Microwave based solutions," Beretta said.
