Is the smartphone explosion giving you bandwidth headaches?Do you need to prepare to better compete in 4G?
See how a large wireless provider:
n
Gained instant bandwidth relie with high quality o service
n
Bridged the divide between 2G and 3G
n
Secured the ability to seamlessly migrate to LTE/4G
n
Simplied operations with a single network manager.
Introduction
A Tier 1 mobile operator aced signicant challenges:
n
Increasing bandwidth and adding new services while leveraginga diverse set o embedded services and technologies
n
Providing a high-quality user experience
n
Applying a path to a packet-oriented mobile network
n
Doing it all in parallel.As with many o its global counterparts, expanding the reach andcapacity o its network was crucial to ensuring near- and long-termsuccess. In addition to upgrading its network to deliver advanced3G mobile-broadband services, the operator is migrating its networkrom TDM-based equipment to an all-IP inrastructure and preparingto roll out 4G/LTE services.A critical component o that multi-aceted transormation strategy isa major upgrade o the backhaul network to provide the bandwidth,quality o service (QoS) and resiliency required by next-generationmobile Internet services and inherent in many time-tested legacyoerings. With Tellabs as a partner, the operator is deploying ahigh-perormance, multi-protocol backhaul segment that scalesseamlessly, reliably and cost-eectively across thousands o cellsites and millions o potential users. Anchoring the new backhaulnetwork are the Tellabs

More Access Speed and Capacity
The operator decided to ocus rst on increasing access speedsand capacity. Over the last ew years, the operator upgraded its3G base stations to High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA) and, insome markets, converted 850-MHz spectrum rom 2G to support3G services. In addition to adding thousands o new 3G cellsites, the operator increased backhaul bandwidth by replacing orsupplementing the 4 to 6 copper-based T1/E1 lines at many cellsites with ber-based Ethernet links.The decision to replace or supplement oten comes down to theoperational model in a specic region o the operator’s network; orexample, whether the operator owns the backhaul or leases it, or acombination o both. In either case, a fexible solution is needed toadapt strategically to each environment.These eorts, combined with the HSPA upgrades, increase 3Gspeeds and capacity and also create a seamless migration path toa 4G/LTE environment, where the required end-user link speeds areexpected to exceed 50 Mbps. As the operator rolls out LTE services,users must be able to switch easily among 4G, 3G and 2G servicesor the astest and most reliable connection available in a givengeographic area.
Paving a Migration Path to IP/MPLS and 4G
The next step in upgrading the base station-to-RNC backhaulnetwork centered on two requirements: high-density inverse-multiplexing-over-ATM (IMA) transport and aggregation, and amigration path to IP/MPLS. The operator’s network is largely acentralized one, with thousands o base stations connectedthrough hundreds o mobile switching oces (MSOs) to multipleradio network controllers (RNCs).The sheer physical scale o the network, along with potentialgrowth in trac volumes, required the aggregation o at least 400IMA bundles per MSO group. For illustrative purposes, i 200 basestations, each with 10 IMA links, connect to a single RNC, thattranslates into 2,000 T1s/E1s or about 25 OC-3/STS-3 [assuming80 T1s per OC-3] or over 30 STM-1s [assuming 60 E1s per STM-1].Like many mobile providers around the world, the operator hadsubstantial investments in two platorms--one designed or 3G(ATM-based) backhaul and another that supports 2G (TDM-based) backhaul. To accommodate its growing data demands and

subsequent IMA aggregation requirements across a huge network,the operator aced the prospect o continuing to invest in multipleATM network elements, each o which in this case could onlysupport 8 IMA groups, and aggregating those to its existing routing/ switch platorm.At the same time, to protect its 2G service revenues, the operatorwould have to maintain its existing investment in TDM platormswhere necessary. More investment in ATM and TDM-only elementsproved inecient and only hindered the need to lay out a cleanmigration path to a packet network. In addition, traditional ATMswitches did not oer the fexible Gigabit and multi-Gigabit interacesneeded or both network scaling needs and Ethernet interconnectwith newer, Ethernet-oriented backhaul networks.The operator ound a cost-eective, end-to-end solution to all threeissues in the Tellabs

8800 Multiservice Router (MSR) Series.The rst IP/MPLS router to support native ATM switching and TDMcircuit emulation over packet (SAToP), the Tellabs 8800 series alsosupports classic IP and MPLS protocols — such as RSVP, LDP,BGP, OSPF, etc. — as well as the aster Ethernet interaces neededor 4G/LTE services. In parallel, with an IMA density 8 times greaterthan alternative solutions, the Tellabs 8800 series protects theoperator’s existing 2G/3G investments and revenues and paves aseamless migration to an IP/MPLS-enabled network.
One Platorm = Mobile Aggregation+ Core Interconnection
In some areas o the network, the operator is deploying theTellabs 8800 series to unction as an IMA aggregation or Ethernetinterconnect point in ront o the RNC and also as an IP/MPLS coreedge router. As a result, the operator does not have to invest intwo separate platorms and the associated rack space, power andcooling requirements.The Tellabs 8800 series supports the Iub (Node B to RNC), IuR(RNC to RNC)and also IuCS/ IuPS (mobile core) interaces in thecarrier network. Eectively serving as single-platorm RNC “cloud,”the Tellabs 8800 series surrounds the RNC and connects it, viaEthernet or point-to-point protocol (PPP), over channelized OC-3,12- and 48 links, to the appropriate network elements in themobile core.In addition, some areas within the operator’s IP/MPLS core networkhave a decentralized RNCs which are remotely located rom coreunctions such as the Gateway GPRS Support Node (GGSN)and Serving GPRS Support Node (SGSN). In these instances,the operator uses the Tellabs 8800 series to create an IP/MPLStransmission path or trac between the RNC and the mobilecore to address the lack o co-location and to ensure redundancyand reliability. I a ailure occurs, the operator is protected bytechnologies such as Fast Re-Route to divert trac to anotherdestination point, ensuring a given RNC has multiple interconnection
