This IP network will allow Bharti Airtel to meet the surging bandwidth requirements of customers while accessing data, video and Internet services on an array of devices, such as smart-phones, tablets and laptops.

According to Jagbir Singh, Director – Network Services Group, Bharti Airtel said it is the right time for Airtel to make a transition to a scalable IP-based access network for reasons of both cost and performance. With this Airtel will bring in the next level of user experience that brings alive high-bandwidth applications such as high-speed Internet, interactive TV, mobile video blogging and many more.

The key elements of the Bharti Airtel mobile backhaul network are Alcatel-Lucent’s 7750 Service Router, 7705 Service Aggregation Router (SAR) and 5620 Service Aware Manager. They are the cornerstones of Alcatel-Lucent’s leading Mobile Backhaul solution, offering a highly scalable, converged (support for 2G, 3G, and 4G/LTE) and reliable end-to-end solution deployed by more than 120 operators globally.
