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

Imagine if you would the following conversation between the Captain and Co-Pilot of a commercial airliner as they prepare the plane for take off


Captain: “Fuel”?                               Co-Pilot: “Check”

Captain: “Flaps set”?                      Co-Pilot: “Check”

Captain: “Doors secured”?           Co-Pilot: “err no”


Clearly no airline crew would progress the check any further, the doors would be secured before the check was run again to ensure the plane was in the right condition to fly.
