The impact of the new requirements from LTE-A (and beyond) on the backhaul network are discussed by Patrick Donegan, from Heavy Reading, in this recently released white paper, and accompanying webinar.

 

The white paper discusses that to successfully support new features from LTE-A and VoLTE it is essential that the backhaul networks add new features which have not often been a requirement to date. Specifically, these include

 

  • Frequency synchronisation
  • Phase synchronisation
  • Very low latency access to the Security Gateway from the eNodeB for the handover interface

Backhaul without Boundaries

by Juniper Employee on ‎09-22-2014 12:03 PM

There is no doubt that we are living in a virtual world these days, fantasy football, avatars, and so on. Sometime I wonder why we like virtual world so much. Apparent reasons that come to mind are that virtual world is almost equivalent to fantasy land. In the V-world you can dream big, the cost of failure is not huge, you can try out things before physically building them, you get the drift. These are the precise reasons that networks are also leaning towards the virtual environment with the help of network function virtualization (NFV) technology. Even backhaul is not safe from the virtual revolution, I call it “backhaul without boundaries”.

I had the privilege of participating in a panel discussion about 5G Networks and Backhaul at TIA 2014 conference in Dallas. The panel had a well-rounded participation from vendors addressing different parts of mobile networks. As expected there were no violent agreements on this topic, rather it was reaffirmation of a comment made at a session in ITU on the topic of 5G that “5G is like a big elephant in the room where everyone is seeing the different parts of it”.

5G Networks and Backhaul

by Juniper Employee ‎06-02-2014 09:48 AM - edited ‎07-11-2014 02:00 PM

We are in the midst of major 4G rollouts and more than half of the world population have not even tasted the supersonic LTE networks, yet we see a lot of industry talks on the topic of 5G networks. So let us shine our crystal balls and see what 5G networks are all about all the while addressing some of the burning questions related to this topic.

Reflections from MWC14

by Juniper Employee ‎03-05-2014 07:47 AM - edited ‎03-05-2014 03:40 PM

Even though MWC has started to resemble a consumer electronics show, which is evident from the amount of coverage given to the devices and apps. From the remaining discussion that happened within the networking realm the greatest buzz was around virtualization and IoT. Rather there was so much emphasis on VoE (virtualization of everything) that it seems as though we have managed to transform our problems from the real world to the virtual world Smiley Happy

Bo Diddley and the LTE Security Debate – Who Do You Trust?

by Juniper Employee ‎10-31-2013 04:03 AM - edited ‎10-31-2013 05:46 AM

LTE offers mobile operators a chance to fight back against the “cost-per-bit” culture that has come to dominate a market with falling ARPU. But Patrick Donegan, writing in a paper by Heavy Reading, feels there will be a close correlation between financial performance and the adoption of end-to-end IP Security. Why then, do many operators find it an acceptable risk not to adopt end-to-end IPSec?

“The days of planning via Erlangs are dead.” So said Juniper Networks’ Steve Shaw in a recent webinar. Unpredictable growth and unpredictable real time demand require new thinking in mobile network planning. Steve was joined by Humair Raza who, acknowledging you cannot build a business on cost savings alone, was keen to demonstrate new ways of turning the network into a platform for revenue growth. Between them, they make a compelling case for revising how we think about mobile backhaul networks.

Mohammed Khan loves mobile backhaul and he wants you to love mobile backhaul too. He feels it’s often overlooked as the whole LTE debate becomes centred on SDN and virtualization in the datacenter and evolved packet core. But Mohammed argues that backhaul is vital to the user experience. And, if you get it right, it will make you money and save you money. This blog captures some of the thoughts Mohammed shared with an audience at LTE World Summit and there’s a link so you can see Mohammed in action delivering his 20 minute presentation.

Trust.

 

Subjective, emotional, personal yet crucial that it exists for inter-personal or business to business transactions to be conducted on an ongoing basis. 

 

The first curious thing about trust is that in many ways it is not a monetarily expensive thing to establish. It is built on the emotional pillars of integrity, authenticity, and transparency.  Those pillars can and often do take time to establish but once established they provide a strong foundation for that ongoing transactional engagement.

Ask any citizen of a country that has been through a currency change and my guess is that the initial fear, scepticism and doubt was, in time,  replaced with an acceptance that the change was ultimately beneficial when considering the bigger picture.  Of course some will retain an emotional attachment to the ways of old but often progress and emotion are not easy bed fellows.
