Cambridge Broadband Networks Ltd. is the first backhaul-focused technology vendor to join the Next Generation Mobile Network Alliance (NGMN). The NGMN is a group of world leading operators such as AT&T, China Mobile, Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone as well as technology vendors, including Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Ericsson, Huawei and Nokia Siemens Networks.

Cambridge Broadband Networks supplies point-to-multipoint packet microwave backhaul network solutions, designed to provide flexible backhaul to mobile broadband network operators. These solutions enable mobile network operators to roll-out high performance mobile broadband networks quickly.

This new partnership combines the knowledge of NGMN’s partners with Cambridge Broadband Network’s expertise in traffic optimisation and PMP microwave backhaul architecture, thereby furthering the group’s capabilities to work effectively towards providing better next generation mobile broadband services.

Peter Meissner, operating officer of NGMN, said, “To ensure that next generation networks deliver a quality experience to customers, backhaul networks need to be carefully designed to respond to traffic requirements while providing cost-efficient, flexible and easy-to-operate solutions for the operators. NGMN is glad to have Cambridge Broadband Networks on board to help us to achieve our challenging objectives and to make the vision of NGMN a reality.”
