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

Celebrations, lists and predictions are all to be indulged in as we approach the festivities and a new year. I’m no exception so here are a few of my predictions for the world of LTE as we go into 2014.

I contend that MSPs, consumers and third party services providers such as banks take mobile network security for granted. I really don’t think any segment has fully thought through the implications for them, their brand, their ability to win new business, or the safety of personal information and all that implies. A new white paper by the Juniper team takes a look at some of the underlying causes and effect. My blog calls out some of the highlights and also gives you a link to download the white paper.

Will LTE Security Separate the Coke from the 4G Can?

by Juniper Employee ‎09-12-2013 05:34 AM - edited ‎10-31-2013 05:22 AM

There are many things we take for granted these days; mobile networks for instance. It’s a long time since I’ve heard a discussion about the merits of one operator over another. Many people feel operators are vanilla and the real flavour is in the content they experience. But LTE will change that in a surprising way. Operators’ attitudes to LTE Security differ in an alarming way and will influence many people’s buying decisions. Read on to discover what a new paper from Heavy Reading reveals about these attitudes and the approaches adopted by many operators.

As a UK citizen, I have the somewhat dubious privilege of being able to select the supplier of electricity to my house.

 

Those suppliers, who number around 5 or 6, are well known major utility companies who compete with each other in an open market, the downstream supply side of the electricity marketplace having been privatised in the UK some time ago.

 

Clearly, the supply of electricity to any household is vital, without it, mine and my family’s lifestyle would be severely impacted. 

 

And yet, curiously, I attach zero value to it.

LTE-A stands for LTE Africa

by Juniper Employee ‎07-12-2013 07:10 AM - edited ‎07-12-2013 07:14 AM

Just a few days after LTE World Summit in Amsterdam, this week, I've been attending the LTE Africa event in Cape Town, July 9-10. One might think LTE is the same thing wherever you go, however I can now say the two events were very different, according to the sessions I attended and the conversations I had (...)
