Malaysia's iZZinet Selects Harris Stratex for Base Station Network Roll-out

Malaysia's iZZinet has selected Harris Stratex' "Eclipse" radios for its nationwide wireless broadband network roll-out program. Formerly known as MoBif Wireless Broadband, iZZinet is in the process of adding more than 100 base stations throughout Malaysia to support its rapidly expanding iBurst wireless broadband network. Harris Stratex Networks worked with iZZinet engineers to design the network around an Eclipse all-IP core, with all radio links transporting wireless Carrier-grade Ethernet services. The Eclipse radios provide native Ethernet capabilities and the compact nodal configuration allows operators to aggregate and concentrate traffic without the need for additional equipment, reducing the complexity of network deployments. Financial terms were not disclosed.
