Platinum Core Solutions Installs Infinera’s Mobile Fronthaul Solution in Malaysia

Malaysian operator Platinum Core Solutions (PCS) will use Infinera’s Mobile Fronthaul Solution in the country to offer mobile operators high-bandwidth mobile fronthaul as part of its mobile wholesale service from the central office all the way to a shared mobile tower.

There is a surge in the deployment of centralized or cloud-radio access network (C-RAN) architectures to support the increased bandwidth required for 4G mobile services in Malaysia. This implies connecting their cell towers to a centralized location via fiber-optic networks. PCS has capitalized on this trend with its new wholesale C-RAN offering.

By deploying Infinera’s Mobile Fronthaul Solution, PCS can deliver an economically advantageous mobile network that supports multiple mobile operators using the same infrastructure. Infinera’s Mobile Fronthaul Solution claims to support all Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) and Open Base Station Architecture Initiative (OBSAI) rates, ranging from 614 megabits per second to 12 gigabits per second.

Commenting on the new deployment, Ahmad Zaki Astaman, managing director at PCS said, “After evaluating the mobile fronthaul solutions on the market, we selected Infinera’s solution as it best enables PCS to support the needs of our customers. By combining the Infinera Mobile Fronthaul Solution with the previously deployed mobile backhaul solution from Infinera, PCS now offers mobile operators a full range of mobile optimized services.”

“With this deployment, PCS enables mobile operators to roll out advanced C-RAN architectures to support the massive growth of mobile data that is expected to continue for the next several years,” added Andrew Bond-Webster, vice president of APAC Sales at Infinera.
