White Rock Selected by PPL Telcom for Fiber-Enabled Cell Site Backhaul

PPL Telcom, a facilities based operator, has selected White Rock Networks' transport and multi-service optical access products to provide backhaul capabilities to cell sites in the Northeast for one of the nation's top wireless carriers.

PPL Telcom will deploy White Rock's VLX2020 Optical Transport system in a multi-node OC-192 core aggregation ring supporting multiple subtended OC-48 optical access rings for backhaul of TDM and Ethernet cellular traffic. White Rock's VLX2006 Multi-service Access platform will be installed at individual cell sites on the OC-48 rings providing fully protected Ethernet, DS1 and DS3 transport of wireless voice and data services.

"PPL Telcom's immediate application called for high-density DS1 backhaul of existing 2G cellular voice traffic. The VLX2020's DS1 grooming, transmux and 3/1 cross-connect capabilities proved an easy and cost-effective way to optimize the transport efficiency of PPL Telcom's existing T1 TDM traffic, " said Lonnie Martin, Founder/CEO of White Rock Networks.
