MM3.0: The Future of Messaging

Published by Tekelec

One of the biggest forces to affect the next-generation messaging world is the rise of data services. For a number of years, forecasters have predicted that data services such as Web browsing and mobile instant messaging will start to take off and will become a significant revenue generator for operators. This paper provides insight into the rise of mobile data services, market drivers, likely messaging business models and architectural options that will dominate in the future, as well as the move to all-IP networks and how mobile network operators (MNOs) can regain control over messaging services and stabilize revenues.

Multi Vendor Network Parameter Management

Published by Aexio

Radio Network quality in a cellular network can be used as a barometer to gauge the overall quality of a network. This is in a large part due to the fact that the mobile network’s quality is dominated by a substantial number of environmental factors. By tracking a few key performance indicators (KPIs) in the radio network, call quality and subscribers’ perception of the quality of the network can be monitored. These KPI include, for example, blocked calls, dropped calls, voice quality and throughput.

The drive to enrich customer experience

Published by Nokia Siemens Networks

It is a sign of the times – communication service providers (CSPs) are starting to emphasize the quality of their all-round customer experience rather than just the raw speeds or other technical features of their offerings. Take O2 – in the UK it has been advertising its Home Broadband service as “voted number one in customer satisfaction”. Meanwhile, Vodafone’s CEO, Vittorio Collao, told investors in late 2008 that one of the core pillars of its strategy now is to ”…drive operational performance through customer value enhancement”.

VDSL2–A Feasible Solution for “Last Mile”

Published by ZTE

ADSL plus is currently being deployed worldwide as the new mainstream broadband technology for residential and business customers. But at the same time, the industry is gearing up for the next step of the DSL evolution: VDSL . This second version of the very high-speed digital subscriber line (VDSL) standard from ITU-T promises to deliver 100Mbps symmetrical traffic on short copper loops.

Intelligent “None”Network Management, Brilliant OAM Helper

Published by ZTE

The in-depth development of social informatization facilitated by the booming growth of data communications service enables Ethernet switch the key device in broadband network to get outstanding achievements in both quantity and quality. Currently, it is now trying to become more high-speed and intelligent. At the same time, due to the unceasing extension of broadband network, the complicated network environment makes network management even more difficult. Network manageability not only depends on network management solution, but also closely connects with the manageability of each basic network element. By improving the manageability of the switch and making the network management-based switch to provide integrated and smart management mode, it on one hand simplifies network management procedure, releases the conflict between network scale and network manageability, on the other hand helps user effectively reduce the costs in deployment and maintenance.

UK mobile broadband measurements

Sponsored by Bytemobile

An extensive measurement campaign was carried out between June and August 2009 to assess the effect of mobile broadband optimisation on Internet access through notebook/netbook computers. Measurements were performed in and around London on all UK mobile networks offering mobile broadband products and conducted so that the results were comparable, regardless of the surrounding environment and traffic in the measured cell.

10G EPON – Unleashing the Bandwith Potential

Published by ZTE

For the first time in history, we can now aim to live in “One World”, because the 1st century has ushered in a new era in man’s ongoing quest for a better life and a better world. Telco industry is passing through a phase of multiservice revolution, with a shift from legacy to next generation networks and the introduction of new and advanced services (e.g. DTV, HDTV, IPTV, VoIP, WiMAX, Mobile TV, etc.). More and more service providers are progressing to triple-play and even quad-play packages in order to provide a one-stop shopping service to customers. IP traffic is growing exponentially and networks evolve to include bandwidth hungry IP-based applications on voice, video and data. A discussion about broadband medium and speed is on everyone’s tongue. But still it is under discussion that “how fast is fast enough”. In fact, broadband is not just a speed it is defined as a potential medium that offers a wide variety of applications to users at their premises. This white paper provides a detailed tutorial overview of the IEEE 802.3av 10Gbit/s Ethernet PON (10G EPON) market trends that are driving the requirement of future last mile access networks, standardization advancements, technology infrastructure.

LTE performance for initial deployments

Published by Nokia Siemens Networks

LTE (Long Term Evolution) and SAE (System Architecture Evolution) are on the way. The question is now about when, where and how LTE/SAE will arrive. Regardless of what motivates each operator to make the transition, it is essential to demonstrate the stability and performance of the new systems at an early stage in order to promote the smooth and cost-efficient introduction and deployment of LTE/SAE technology. This is true both within companies and as part of wider, coordinated efforts towards interoperability. Since the 3GPP specifications are now reasonably well defined and stable, the time is right to evaluate performance and to publish the most interesting results.

LTE will meet the promise of global mobile broadband

Published by Nokia Siemens Networks

Fiber access is one of the most important technologies in the next generation network. It increases
the access layer bandwidth and builds a sustainable-development access layer network. OAN
(Optical Access Network) adopts technologies: active point-to-point (P P) Ethernet and passive
optical network (PON).

ZTE broadband metro network solution

As telecoms networks are in the shift to be packetized and broadband-based, All-IP has been the future development trend of service networks. According to prediction, bandwidth is expected to grow at an annual rate of over 30% in the next five years. The two-layer networking mode “IP over WDM” is gradually replacing the traditional three-layer “IP over SDH over WDM” mode at both backbone layer and metro layer, and the flat architecture enabling carriage of IP packets directly over photonic layer has been an inevitable trend. IP over WDM networking architecture poses new requirements for photonic layer WDM equipments, and WDM layer will take over the networking, service grooming and end-to end circuit monitoring and management functions originally provided by SDH networks.

IPTN: IP Bearer Network Solution Oriented to 2G/3G Mobile Backhaul

As the competition in the global telecom market becomes increasingly fierce, the 2G and 3G bearer services coexist, the traffic bandwidth increases constantly and the interfaces tend to be IP-based, the bearer networks are required to provide powerful multi-service bearer capability, statistical multiplexing, differentiated QoS, carrier-class service guarantee, high precision clock synchronization, and excellent network extensibility.

Choosing the right strategy for xPON deployment is the challenge of operators, whether incumbents, alternative or municipalities & power utilities, willing to preserve their investment, optimize CAPEX and OPEX while maximizing their revenues with new services. Each option depends on the addressed market, residential or business, on the regulatory environment and on the deployment cost, all leading to technical and financial decisions to be made.

Overview of SDR market – Trends & Potential

Published by ZTE

Software Defined Radio (SDR) is the evolution of base station technology. Although too expensive
to be considered in the past, underlying technology advances are starting to turn the new
concept from expensive to efficient and even able to reduce costs. Several infrastructure vendors
have now implemented SDR in their product portfolio and mobile operators are now realising that
the new technology can provide significant cost savings, lower the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
for a newly deployed network and provide compatibility with future standards.
