Recently HFR signed a partnership agreement with Zoho's WebNMS.
As per the arrangement, the HFR HA-800 series of networking systems is now integrated with the WebNMS Carrier Ethernet Management Solution to provide a series of solution that can help in building complete mobile backhaul networks that are cost effective, simple to manage and can handle highly demanded 4G services.
