MASTERseries™ Wireless Backhaul Bandwidth Optimization Platform

  Back to Carrier Access/Transport Products



MASTERseries™ Overview
The MASTERseries platform is designed for aggregating and optimizing backhaul of cell site traffic over any TDM-, ATM-, Ethernet-, and/or IP-based transport network. Purpose-built for deployments in wireless operators’ cell sites and small hub sites, the highly flexible platform integrates multiple functions in one compact shelf. In addition to advanced ATM inter-working, pseudowire, and layer 2 Ethernet switching capabilities, the MASTERseries provides optional functionality, such as Abis transport optimization and DS0 grooming/DCS, that maximizes bandwidth efficiency and minimizes network operating costs.  The MASTERseries is a proven platform that has been installed in tens of thousands of cell sites by multiple top-tier wireless operators.

Key Features
