  • 1. Migrating the Core The Evolution of the Backhaul Network to Enable Wireless Data Services ©2009 Fujitsu Network Communications
  • 2. This is Me Responsible for Business and Market Development for wireless technologies in North America. Many years in the CLEC industry deploying metropolitan fiber networks. Jim Orr Market Development Director Fujitsu Network Communications
  • 3. Backhaul – The Boring Part
    • Backhaul is a necessary evil
    • Enables revenue, but does not create new revenue (adds to CCPU)
  • 4. Backhaul – There is Not One Answer
    • Wireless, optical and copper
    • LECs, CLECs, Cable Cos, Power Companies, etc.
    • If you as me about a technology, the answer is probably “yes” at least somewhere
  • 5. Agenda
    • Part 1 – There is a Network Already Today
      • Towers exist and have backhaul in place
      • Physical connectivity exists from tower to MSC
    • Part 2 – The Network Demand is Changing
      • Network usage is skyrocketing
      • Carriers must enable new revenue streams and services
      • 4G Network Architecture is based on packets
      • 4G Core Network Architecture is Distributed
    • Part 3 – Connection Oriented Ethernet Evolves the Network
      • What is Connection-Oriented Ethernet (COE) ?
      • Mobile backhaul technology migration

  • 9. Mobile Broadband: In Search of Profitability
    • Mobile broadband is still in the build-out phase
      • HSPA and EV-DO in 3 rd /4 th year of roll-out
      • Operators are investing for near term subscriber acquisition and long term transformation of their business models
    • Mobile broadband isn’t profitable (yet)
      • In 3G, voice and data are still mostly discrete network elements
      • Large majority of new network capex is driven by mobile broadband
      • If costs are allocated separately to voice and messaging on the one hand, and mobile broadband on the other, mobile broadband isn’t profitable today
      • Early in the investment cycle, but need to start aligning for profitability

  • 10. Heavy Reading’s Outlook: 2009 is the year of packet backhaul
    • Backhaul a key lever in realigning for profitability
    • Heavy Reading’s packet backhaul forecasts
      • 108,000 cell sites in live service world-wide by the end of 2009
      • 12,300 in live service in the U.S by the end of 2009
      • Forecasts are for packet backhaul in live service at 2G/3G cell sites; WiMAX sites and ML-PPP implementations excluded
    • Still expecting a slow rate at which packet backhaul is turned up to commercial service
      • Still expect 75% of the world’s cell sites will be served exclusively by TDM backhaul in 2012

  • 13. Key Backhaul Requirements
    • Big enough pipe
    • Correct interfaces
    • Low latency
    • Simple
    • Survivable
    • Cost effective
  • 14. Wireless Impacts on Backhaul
    • BIG problem from tower to wire center
      • Moving from 3Mb to 100+Mb
      • Maybe 12 sites/wire center for a total of about 1Gb
    • SMALL amount of the traffic after that first wire center
      • Even small wire centers generate several 10Gb circuits
    • Wireless will add 10% at most to the existing network
  • 15. A Backhaul Network Exists
    • All of these towers are connected to the other components of the network
      • Physical network deployed
      • Considerable capital value remains on the books
    • 4G deployments are not going to generate a total replacement of all of the existing network
    • Leased facilities exist for the 2G T1s
      • Average of 7 actual orders to create a T1 circuit from a cell tower to the MSC
      • 7 to disconnect
      • 12 to move a circuit
      • Large opportunity cost to groom existing T1s
  • 16. Network Segments Access Aggregation Core
  • 17. The Towers Have Service Today
    • We are nearing 300,000 towers – and all of them have some kind of backhaul capacity
      • Service capacity is a “Two Hump” distribution function
    1-2 DS3s 1-6 DS1s Have Fiber Don’t Have Fiber
  • 18. Backhaul Capacity Requirements at the Cell Site Heavy Reading research licensed to Fujitsu - may not be used by non-licensees
  • 19. 4G Takes Over
    • Delivers Unmatched Spectral Efficiency
      • Record spend on spectrum makes it the most valuable resource
      • Recent LTE drive tests in Hokkaido produced 10 bits/Hz peak and as much as 5 sustained
      • Current 3G is about 1 bit/Hz
    • Delivers Core Network Efficiency
      • Low latency architecture drives far higher schedule efficiencies
      • RAN contribution 5 ms or less, compared to more than 100 ms today
    • New Bands Get New Technology
      • Planners strive to minimize operational handling of network elements
      • Placing EVDO or HSPA on 700 MHz or AWS creates an upgrade requirement best to be avoided
  • 20. 4G in Stages
    • Build For Those Who Use Everything And Those Who Have Nothing
      • Major metro areas
      • Rural deployment (direct and through partnerships)
    • Coverage First
      • 700 MHz for wide coverage
      • Existing sites
      • 3G/2G Fallback creates total coverage pattern
    • Capacity Second
      • 10% of users generate 80% of wireless data
      • We know where these people are (today) – first focus for LTE
      • Distribution will shift – and we will follow the users
    • Full Portfolio of Base Station Models Required
      • Macro – Wide Area Micro – Enterprise Campus
      • Pico – Neighborhood Femto – In Home/In Business
    Metro Core Sub Urban Rural
  • 21. Base Stations Get Small
    • LTE is expected to augment the deployment of picocells.
    • Boost indoor coverage
    • Offload macro network traffic
    • Provide enhanced coverage for enterprise customers.
    • Build the coverage network with Macrocells, supplement with Micro and Pico cells
      • Deploy for coverage and offload the heavy users when traffic patterns require
  • 22. Core Network Migrates Over Time
    • The Enhanced Packet Core (EPC) is build to be distributed
    • Reality is that these devices will be concentrated into the Mobile Switching Center for some time
    • Backhaul network needs to be designed to transport the messaging and data to the MSC, with the ability to migrate those devices to the edge
  • 23. Migrate with Circuit Oriented Ethernet
  • 24. A Tale of Two Entities
    • “ Mobile Backhaul” typically involves two business entities
      • Mobile provider & Backhaul provider
      • Even if there is one “integrated provider” as the parent company
      • Money/services exchanged between the two entities
    • Two network deployments
      • Two sets of networking requirements and operational issues
      • Networks have a client/server relationship – not a peer to peer relationship
  • 25. Networking requirements / issues
    • Mobile services provider
      • Must reduce backhaul costs in the face of expanding CCPU
      • Requires reliability, performance, rapid service commissioning from backhaul provider

  • 43. Why Ethernet-based COE for MBH ?
    • Meets the MBH functional requirements set forth by SONET
      • Deterministic and precision performance
      • Link (Line) and EVC (Path) fault management tools
      • Guaranteed bandwidth through resource reservation
      • Optimized for P2P and P2MP topologies used in MBH networks
      • Sub 50ms protection / restoration
    • Simpler Network OAM – just one layer to manage: Ethernet
      • Consistent with existing SONET-based network operations
      • No IP knowledge required. Easy to learn by SONET transport staff
      • Provisioning model similar to SONET
    • Non-routed operational simplicity
      • MBH networks do not require routing between the cell site and hub sites/MSCs
      • Higher network element reliability (significantly fewer protocols / simpler SW)
    Fujitsu’s COE implementation facilitates the migration from existing SONET MBH infrastructures to Ethernet over Fiber and EoWDM
  • 44. Mobile Backhaul Technology Migration … on the road to Ethernet
    • Compelling case to keep 2G traffic on TDM
      • 2G traffic growth very small so T1 MRC is essentially flat
    • What do you do with high growth 3G traffic?
      • Some Base Stations can be upgraded to Ethernet
      • COE over SONET, Fiber or Microwave choices
    • Wireline LEC or MSO with a SONET infrastructure
      • COE over SONET: Simplest to implement with maximal bandwidth efficiency for data
      • Legacy, low growth 2G services remain on TDM
    • For Ethernet over Fiber infrastructures must consider MEF 22 GIWF:
      • Generic Interworking Function: Non-Ethernet  Ethernet (via Circuit Emulation)
    3G BS 4G BS Ethernet Ethernet GIWF Ethernet 2G BS COE over SONET  COE over Fiber Hub site or Mobile Switching Center 3G backhaul most challenging because it is transitional Time Bandwidth Voice + 2G Data 3G/4G Data ATM over T1s MLPPP over T1s T1s T1s (TDM) SONET 
  • 45. Clock Synchronization for GIWF
    • Frequency Synchronization (Syntonization)
      • Process to align clocks in frequency
      • Synchronizes clocks to a Primary Reference Source (PRS)
        • Required for Circuit Emulation

  • 46. MBH Network Classes of Service How many should you support?
    • No. of CoSs determined by supported services
      • Do you offer a streaming service, e.g., TV on Demand ?
    • Understand the application to properly engineer the traffic management
      • Streaming and Conversational classes use UDP for media and TCP for control
      • Synchronization requires lowest FD, FDV and FLR
      • Streaming class is delay tolerant due to application buffering
      • Conversational class (VoIP) is loss tolerant due to device playback buffering
    COE provides SONET-like deterministic performance so CoS differentiation becomes less difficult to engineer
  • 47. COE Scalability Scalability addressed in two dimensions
    • EVC Address Space Scalability
      • VLAN tag switching can use C-VLAN IDs, S-VLAN IDs or B-VLAN IDs
        • VLAN IDs have local significance so 4095 IDs reused at each interface
        • 4095 VLAN ID restriction no longer applies
    • EVC Aggregation via COE Tunnels
      • Many EVCs mapped to COE Tunnel
      • COE Connection Admission Control manages COE tunnel bandwidth
        • Similar to managing SONET VCGs but with much higher BW efficiency
    COE meets EVC scalability requirements for MBH networks COE Tunnels simplify MBH bandwidth management
  • 48. COE Tunnels Improved network efficiency and scalability
    • Tunnel aggregates EVCs to achieve stat muxing gains
      • Like SONET STS with VT1.5s but more granularly and efficiently
    • Tunnel can support guaranteed and oversubscribed bandwidth
      • Manage tunnel BW rather than individual EVCs within the tunnel
      • Each Tunnel can support multiple CoSs
    • Provides CIR plus enables Subscriber traffic to burst to EIR
      • Results in better traffic Goodput – resulting in better QoE
