M�la ehf, Iceland’s incumbent operator, is deploying Overture's Carrier Ethernet platforms into its existing architecture to help meet rapidly rising mobile bandwidth demand. Mila’s 10GigE mobile backhaul network architecture incorporates both the Overture 1400 and 4800 platforms in a hierarchical G.8032 Carrier Ethernet ring topology to deliver vast amounts of bandwidth, low latency service, support for LTE’s X2 interface and 20ms protection switching.

The Overture 1400 is a modular Gigabit Carrier Ethernet platform supporting 3G and 4G data services to single or multiple carriers at the cell tower.
