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”.

MWC14 will be rife with new announcements about the future of the mobile networks. The theme of the show "Creating What is Next" screams of the innovations in line for the next decade, 2020 and beyond.

 

I am going to throw my hat in the ring and explain how Juniper's Hi-IQ Networks vision will transform the mobile networks of the future ...

Mobile backhaul is a bit like the corporate IT department. When everything is going well, no one remembers it actually exists – when the systems work, no one wants to touch them. However, as IT requires the periodical upgrades, mobile backhaul needs to be regularly upgraded. The demands are similar – ability to cope with the growing demands of new technologies and ensuring top-notch customer experience whilst the usage increases. Additionally, such as IT, MBH can become a competitive disadvantage, if it is not up to date with today’s requirements.

 

2014 will be in many markets in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) the year of massive end-user take-up of LTE networks. Writing this in Finland, where mobile downlink speeds exceeding 70 Mbit/s and uplink speeds exceeding 10 Mbit/s are common, one can see LTE brings the mobile user experience to a new level. Consequently the requirements for backhaul are also elevated to a new level.

You may ask what do mobile architecture wars have to do with the “Star Wars”? The reason is simple, these architectures will have repercussion of epic proportions on mobile networks, so much so that even George Lucas could not have fathomed them when he conceived his super hit series. Following in his footsteps through a series of blogs I will try to analyze how mobile network architecture is being influenced by a number of (apparently) good and (apparently) dark forces to promote their agenda in this highly competitive marketplace.

“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.

If we are serious about the “end-to-end” mobile customer experience then deploying LTE without future-proofing the core, backhaul and security will lead to problems later. In a recent Buyer Case Study, IDC do a great job of highlighting some of the challenges faced by mobile operators as they move to all-IP networks. They also take us through how one operator managed this transition. I touch on some of the key points in this blog but I also point you to where you can download the IDC paper for free.

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.
