6WIND Achieves Additional Deployments in LTE Networks Supported by Strong Partner Ecosystem


Paris (PRWEB) May 30, 2012

6WIND, the gold standard for software-defined networks, today announced that it has extended its lead as the #1 supplier of high-performance networking software for LTE infrastructure worldwide. The companys 6WINDGate Mobile Edition software is now deployed in major LTE commercial networks in Asia, Europe and North America. As an example, 6WINDGate currently serves 80% of Japans LTE users, thanks to recent deployments in products from multiple Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEMs) who provide equipment for service providers throughout Japan. Additional tier-1 TEMs have recently selected 6WINDGate for their new generations of LTE core and access equipment, strengthening 6WINDs undisputed leadership position in this market.

According to a recent report by Maravedis, the worldwide LTE subscriber base reached 12 million by the end of 2011, with a 92% growth rate during the fourth quarter. Maravedis projects that there will be 469 million LTE subscribers by 2016, so LTE service providers worldwide are challenged to build out their network capacity with acceptable Return on Investment, while ensuring that their networks are fully scalable in anticipation of traffic growth driven by new LTE devices and the next killer app. At the same time, their overall network architectures must be highly flexible to support the delivery of advanced, subscriber-specific services that maximize overall network monetization, optimize Average Revenue per User (ARPU) and minimize subscriber churn.

The 6WINDGate software enables TEMs to provide equipment that addresses these challenges by maximizing network performance, ensuring unlimited scalability across blades or racks and accelerating advanced networking features such as policy enforcement and security.

Our advanced technology and the widespread adoption of the 6WINDGate Mobile Edition Software led to 6WIND receiving the 4GWE Wireless LTE Visionary Award from Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) in late 2010, said Eric Carm
