Tutorial: Mobile Backhaul over Packet Switched Networks for Mobile Operators

When:Thursday, 24 February 2011 at 11:00 (UTC+8)
Where:HKCEC S227
Presenter:Kasu Venkat Reddy [bio]


Mobile network infrastructures are quickly evolving as mobile operators expand beyond voice to bring high-speed services available from IP networks and the Internet to subscribers. The result is the emergence of networks that are becoming mobile versions of the high-speed Internet or a "mobile Internet". With this, there will be a 100 fold increase in mobile data traffic in the coming years. One of the key areas in mobile networks, ripe for transformation in the rush to deliver robust mobile Internet services, is the Radio Access Network (RAN). Mobile operators must dramatically reduce the cost per bit in their current backhaul solutions while providing transport for third generation (3G) technologies, the next wave of Long Term Evolution (LTE) technologies, and traditional technologies. The move to the all-IP RAN is the single largest infrastructure challenge facing mobile operators.

This presentation provides strategy for mobile operators to implement an IP RAN Mobile backhaul network that allows decoupling from the radio technology as they migrate to an all- IP RAN. This strategy allows mobile operators to cost-effectively provide the bandwidth, backhaul scalability, affordable transport, and intelligent network features necessary to support the Connected Life, the Internet-everywhere experience.
