Smart mobile backhaul enables LTE and LTE-Advanced networks

October 08, 2012 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
A hundred mobile operators have launched commercial LTE service, says the Global Mobile Suppliers Association. While others will have to follow soon to keep up with competitors, mobile users won't settle for poor quality of service (QoS).

LTE and LTE-A networks provide gigabit-per-second speeds to mobile devices. But operators also need smart functionality in mobile backhaul networks to improve user experiences and reduce churn.

Tellabs mobile backhaul systems offer expertise, innovation and adaptability to make the move to LTE and LTE-A smart – comprehensive, self-organizing and simple.

Tellabs provides a scalable solution from small cell aggregation to terabit routing. Tellabs has increased capacities across its entire mobile backhaul portfolio. On a full duplex basis: the 8611 and 8609 smart routers provide up to 7.5G, the 8630 smart router provides up to 80G, the 8660 smart router provides up to 240G, the 8800 smart routers provide up to 360G and the 9200 smart routers provide up to 5.5 Terabits.

Smart mobile backhaul calls for more than just transporting traffic. Tellabs mobile backhaul goes beyond basic backhaul to provide intelligence, security and synchronization – built into a single mobile backhaul solution.

Self-organizing networks enable mobile operators to automate routine tasks and focus on business-critical functions. Self-organizing networks play a major role in mass network roll-outs such as small cell deployments, which are crucial for operators. Operators must have the tools in place to keep routine tasks automated, reduce operating expense and do things right the first time.

Smart mobile backhaul – just like smartphones – needs to be easy and simple to operate and manage. Tellabs mobile backhaul systems provide a single solution to support all mobile generations (4G, 3G and 2G) and enable an easy in-service upgrade to LTE and LTE-A. An all-IP solution enables service providers to provide an end-to-end Quality of Experience (QoE) and any service over any media.

The Tellabs® 8000 Intelligent Network Manager helps customers overcome the complexities of managing ever-changing and fast-growing mobile networks. With simple point-and-click operations, operators can manage and operate mobile, optical and business networks with a single manager.
