Tellabs Unveils Edge Router Portfolio for LTE-Advanced Networks

Tellabs Inc. has announced that it is enhancing its Mobile Backhaul Solutions portfolio for LTE-advanced networks with new capabilities that support data services, low-latency voice and a range of applications such as consumer, enterprise, machine-to-machine connectivity, and cloud networking. Tellabs' new edge router portfolio is further enabled to support Coriant's multilayer SDN solutions for mobile networks. SDN promises dramatic OpEx and CapEx savings in mobile backhaul. The Tellabs 8665 Smart Router is a new high-scale node, providing a seamless evolution for Tellabs Smart Routers managed by the Tellabs 8000 Intelligent Network Manager. Its IP routing and Ethernet switching capabilities, aligned with other Tellabs 8600 Smart Routers, support mobile operators as they build and scale LTE and LTE-Advanced networks. The Tellabs 8665 router is a 900 Gbps full duplex IP/MPLS router with an innovative design, small footprint, low power consumption, and future scalability to 3 Tbps. With Ethernet interfaces from 1 to 100 Gbps, it offers full capabilities for all-IP mobile and fixed networks. The new Tellabs 8615 Smart Router is optimized for mobile and fixed-mobile converged networks, with 44 Gbps throughput in a compact 1RU unit. In the future, two Tellabs 8615 routers can be stacked to provide 88 Gbps throughput. The new Tellabs 8602 Smart Router is a compact, environmentally hardened, full featured 6-port IP/MPLS router that's only one-third the size of competing products. It fits in the most demanding locations due to its compact, environmentally hardened, water- and dust-proof (IP 67) design. The Tellabs 8602 router enables plug-and-play auto configuration through SON (Self Organizing Network) capabilities, speeding deployment of small cells and macrocells. The new Tellabs Integrated GPS (GNSS) SFP Module extends Tellabs' packet synchronization capabilities (e.g., IEEE1588v2, SynchE, ACR). It enables a flexible and cost-efficient Time-of-Day and phase Synchronization in mobile backhaul networks, which is critical as networks evolve to LTE-TDD and LTE-Advanced.

Macronix Files Patent Infringement Complaints with U.S. International Trade Commission Against Spansion, Inc., Spansion LLC, Spansion (Thailand) Ltd. and its Customers

Macronix International Co. Ltd. and Macronix America Inc. announced that they have filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Spansion Inc., Spansion LLC, Spansion (Thailand) Ltd. and certain of their customers at the U.S. International Trade Commission for infringement of three Macronix patents covering separate aspects of non-volatile memory devices, including flash memory. The named defendants include, Beats Electronics LLC; Delphi Automotive PLC; Delphi Automotive Systems LLC; Harman International Industries Inc.; Harman Becker Automotive Systems Inc.; Harman Becker Automotive Systems GmbH; Ruckus Wireless Inc.; and Tellabs Inc. Macronix has taken this step to address Spansion's rampant infringement of Macronix's patent rights and the infringement that arises when Spansion's customers import devices containing infringing Spansion's products, including Spansion flash memory devices, into the United States. The three Macronix patents in suit relate to non-volatile memory technology and products. In this action, Macronix requests ITC issues exclusion order to exclude Spansion's infringing products or products containing such components from further importation into the United States. Macronix also requests ITC to issue general exclusion order to prevent other unidentified parties from importing into the United States their products that contain said infringing products. In addition, Macronix is requesting that the ITC issue cease and desist orders prohibiting further commerce in the United States involving infringing Spansion memory devices. Earlier this year, Macronix filed a separate seven-patent suit against Spansion in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. As demonstrated by the filing of this ITC litigation, Macronix intends to vigorously defend its valuable intellectual property rights.
