Tail-f Systems and BLiNQ Networks Bring Management Scalability to Next Generation Small Cell Mobile Networks

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN and PLANO, TX--(Marketwire - Jan 24, 2012) - Tail-f Systems and BLiNQ Networks, today announced that BLiNQ will use Tail-f's ConfD software to build the management system for its next generation of wireless backhaul solutions. BLiNQ will use Tail-f's technology to provide wireless operators a scalable, industry standard management interface to configure and monitor BLiNQ's backhaul modules as part of a larger mobile network.

"Tail-f Systems' network management software is the best in the market and allows us to provide wireless operators standard management interfaces that easily integrate with their existing systems," said Carleton Miller, CEO of BLiNQ Networks. "This is a key aspect in BLiNQ's strategy to enable scalable and cost-effective small cell deployments to address wireless network capacity demand."

BLiNQ's Backhaul Self-Organizing-Network (B-SON) systems are designed to continuously monitor and adapt to a changing radio frequency environment to maximize backhaul network performance through dynamic interference management and resource allocation. This allows wireless network operators to reduce the total cost of ownership of small cell deployments by simplifying the planning, design and installation processes and enables wireless operators to deploy small cells wherever they are required to solve capacity bottlenecks.

Tail-f Systems' ConfD software will enable BLiNQ to build their network management application in less time and with support for carrier-grade implementations of NETCONF, Web, and SNMP interfaces. BLiNQ will also benefit from ConfD capabilities including powerful transaction management, true model-driven development, and an embedded high performance database.

"BLiNQ Networks is an innovative provider of next generation wireless backhaul solutions and we are very pleased that they have chosen to use ConfD to build their network management system," said Fredrik Lundberg, CEO, Tail-f Systems. "ConfD is an ideal solution for building management applications that meet the scalability and high-availability requirements of mobile network operators."
