A NEW ERA OF MOBILE BACKHAUL
Mobile services. It is a huge market, expected to reach $1.3 trillion (in constant U.S.dollars) by 2016.

It is also a highly competitive market with very demanding customers.To keep customers and grow market share, mobile network operators (MNOs) mustdeliver an outstanding customer experience. To stay protable, they must do so at thelowest possible total cost o ownership.Small cells have recently emerged as a more cost-eective way or MNOs to improvethe coverage and capacity o their mobile services — two o the key elements needed toenhance the subscriber experience. However, to leverage the benets o small cells, thereare some challenges to overcome. One o the most signicant issues is how to providescalable, fexible mobile backhaul to connect small cells back into the network, withoutbreaking the small cell business case.Alcatel-Lucent has expanded its array o highly successul and widely deployed mobilebackhaul solutions to address small cell backhaul, and in particular, to address thechallenges associated with backhauling metro cells. Metro cells are public access, MNOowned and managed small cells. With Alcatel-Lucent mobile backhaul, operators can restassured that they will have the fexibility, scalability, and operational simplicity requiredto deliver tailored, more cost eective mobile backhaul today and into the uture. Theywill be able to provide streamlined backhaul or both metro cells and macro cells as parto the inrastructure or heterogeneous mobile networks.
MOBILE NETWORKs EvOLUTION
In many regions o the world, mobile subscribers are demanding high-speed, reliable andseamless access to mobile data services including the Internet, a growing applicationsecosystem, and mobile video. Mobile networking technology and business models haveevolved to stay abreast o this demand, and there are many alternative approaches to consider.The evolution to 3G and 4G/LTE mobile networks provides a path to more ecient useo radio spectrum and progressively higher uplink and downlink speeds to each user.Wi-Fi® ofoad is an increasingly popular strategy or providing a mechanism to ofoadbest-eort data onto the wireline inrastructure and conserve precious cellular networkresources. Radio Access Network (RAN) and inrastructure sharing agreements enableoperators to pool resources to provide better and more extensive coverage or theirsubscribers. Finally, metro cells have recently emerged as an alternative approach torapidly and more cost-eectively deploy more capacity and coverage into the “hot spots”and “not spots” o a mobile operator’s network.It is clear that every MNO will take a dierent path to increasing coverage and capacityin their networks. Every operator has a dierent set o opportunities and constraints withrespect to spectrum availability and accessibility, customer demand, and availability o capital or network investment. As illustrated in Figure 1, dierent MNOs will pursue
