Mobile Backhaul: Core Network Interoperability & Capacity

CTIA 2013 Mobile Backhaul Conference

Date
Start Date: 
Tuesday, May 21, 2013
End Date:

The increasing global demand for Wide Area Network processing power and speed means mobile wireless operators and bandwidth wholesalers are becoming overwhelmed by staggering volumes of Cloud & LTE traffic. Aggregate bandwidth usage is forecast to continue bringing a tidal surge of traffic behind waves of video and infotainment apps, Cloud data storage, social media, Location Based Services (LBS), Machine-to-Machine (M2M), smart homes, connected cars, and you name it.


Even as 4G and LTE transport bring greater and greater access speeds to more users and more devices, the core capabilities of the network to reliably deliver the services are not necessarily rigged for the road ahead. Engineering the backhaul systems that cope with capacity and service assurance is one the largest challenges in telecom, and potentially an opportunity for new entrants and innovators to join the fray.

Experts from the front line of core infrastructure design and management gathered for an update on trends in this marketplace, including the emergence of small cell backhaul, Carrier Ethernet 2.0, and Multi Class of Service (MultiCoS) configuration.

Developed to help executives and technology professionals evaluate the various backhaul technologies, products, and techniques available today, these 2 interactive sessions feature hard data, trends and forecasts, case studies and lessons from the field, and plenty of Q&A.
