Texas-based BLiNQ will be using Swedish Tail-f’s ConfD software to build the management system for its next generation of wireless backhaul solutions, giving wireless operators a scalable, industry-standard management interface to configure and monitor BLiNQ’s backhaul modules as part of a larger mobile network.

BLiNQ’s Backhaul Self-Organizing-Network (B-SON) systems continuously monitor and adapt to a changing RF environment 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,” the company says.

Seven of the 10 largest global networking equipment providers are Tail-f Systems’ customers. Tail-f Systems’ ConfD software will enable new customer BLiNQ to build its network-management application in less time and with support for carrier-grade implementations of NETCONF, Web and SNMP interfaces. BLiNQ says it also will benefit from ConfD capabilities that include transaction management, true model-driven development, and an embedded high-performance database. Explains BLiNQ CEO Carleton Miller, “This is a key aspect in BLiNQ’s strategy to enable scalable and cost-effective small cell deployments to address wireless network capacity demand.”

More about BLiNQ: BLiNQ Networks was founded in June 2010 after the acquisition of intellectual property and wireless assets from Nortel Networks. BLiNQ uses sub-6 GHz spectrum and patent-pending Managed Adaptive Resource Allocation (MARA) technology to provide network-level intelligence and self-organizing network capabilities while helping to eliminate interference challenges.
