  1. 1. Wired for Growth - Leveraging the Fibre Access Node for Application Enablement Susan White Director, Wireline Product Marketing, Alcatel-Lucent February 2010
  2. 2. FTTx is translating into numbers FTTx subscribers in 2007: 2008: 2009: 16,7% of all fixed BB subscribers 11,6% of all fix BB subscribers 8,2% 45,0 40,0 35,0 Subscribers (M) 30,0 25,0 20,0 15,0 10,0 5,0 0,0 NA EMEA APAC CALA PON VDSL P2P Source: Infonetics / Analyse Alcatel-Lucent FTTx market is gaining momentum offering 50Mb/s and beyond All Rights Reserved © Alcatel-Lucent 2010
  3. 3. But market dynamics are changing….. The increase in broadband capacity is changing the market dynamics Cost Challenge Video and content-rich services are booming… Traffic Affordable fixed and wireless broadband, proliferation of smart devices, multiplicity of multimedia/video applications Revenues Mainly voice … and users access 3rd party apps and content Multimedia/multiservice more and more Paid for by advertisers, free to end-users – network Time providers extract limited value So what does this mean for Fibre Access? All Rights Reserved © Alcatel-Lucent 2010
  4. 4. Operators need to extract more value from Fibre access Solving two simultaneous challenges: Scaling bandwidth at Enabling service the lowest cost innovation and application enablement Innovation Requires a change from keeping value in the network to extracting value from the network All Rights Reserved © Alcatel-Lucent 2010
  5. 5. Driving towards the 3rd Wave of Broadband Access Evolution Application Enabled Access 3rd wave – Application Enabled Access 200M Residential, mobile and business applications converge on a single IP/Ethernet/MPLS access platform Lines Application and subscriberin VDSL #1 intelligence to extract more value from the network #1 Mass market FTTx delivering 50M and beyond #1 in IP DSL 2nd wave – Residential Triple Play Access #1 Voice, video and data from a single IP/Ethernet access platform Service intelligence for optimizing triple play services Emerging next generation access with VDSL and FTTH/GPON delivering +20Mbit/s 1st wave – Internet Access Internet access only using ATM technology Best effort service ADSL with access rates upto 8Mbit/s All Rights Reserved © Alcatel-Lucent 2010
  6. 6. Converging applications onto FTTx access But what are the benefits? Significant CAPEX and Good geographic Mobile Backhaul OPEX savings overlap between FTTx • 90% savings using DSL and cell sites 2G, 3G, LTE and 75% using GPON in • Large cells small stead of leased lines cells to femto IP/Optical Ethernet/ Business Access MPLS/Optical FTTx Access FTTx enables Reduces CAPEX and symmetrical services to OPEX SME/Large enterprises • Driving competitive enterprise prices Business Access But can FTTx meet specialized mobile backhaul and business access requirements? All Rights Reserved © Alcatel-Lucent 2010
  7. 7. Addressing mobile backhaul requirements with FTTx access Bandwidth: GPON meets the LTE bandwidth needs and is the lowest cost fibre technology FTTx access already meets strict QoS requirements for 3G/LTE But FTTx access needs to do more: Synchronisation Converged Network Optional Redundancy Physical layer strongest E1 (CES PW) and Ethernet GPON feeder, equipment (GPON, NTR, Synch E) Temperature Hardened CPE Strong Integrated Demarcation SLA verification, policing, fault isolation All Rights Reserved © Alcatel-Lucent 2010
  8. 8. Turning access into “Ethernet Broadband Business Access” High bandwidth and MEF E-line, E- symmetrical services across LAN any access Fiber, Copper Classify Queue Scaling SLAs that deliver Schedule users; Stacked VLANs, end-to-end Architecture geographical MPLS, VPLS performance Bandwidth Profiles flexibility Detect & Monitor, recover from Link Aggregation, diagnose and Ethernet OAM incidents Multi Chassis LAG without ITU G.8031 manage the MPLS OAM impacting MPLS Fast Recovery network users All Rights Reserved © Alcatel-Lucent 2010
  9. 9. How can operators do more with converged access? Enhance services from 3rd parties with application enablement Quality internet TV/gaming E health Upstream live video Smart metering Cloud computing Detection of worms and botnets Enhance Optimizing the Operator delivery of high services bandwidth services Tele-presence Maximise services on the last mile Video conferencing Reduce cost of delivering Improved IPTV QoE high bandwidth services FTTx Access will play a key role – driving more revenue, enhancing QoE and lowering costs All Rights Reserved © Alcatel-Lucent 2010
  10. 10. Enhancing Access with Application Intelligence Application awareness driving new revenue • Dynamic enhancement and SLA enforcement of Leverage unique location services upstream and knowledge of the access node • Upstream detection and blocking of malware traffic Resource usage analysis on access line to deliver more services Selective caching of content can save considerable network costs and improve QoE Ethernet/ MPLS/Optical IP/Optical VDSL/GPON/ PTP Fibre A GPON OLT can serve 10,000 subscribers With migration to fiber, the (order of magnitude) access node serves a larger subscriber density Application layer functionalities will quickly prove-in for larger access nodes All Rights Reserved © Alcatel-Lucent 2010
  11. 11. Summary Fibre Access Nodes need to do more than deliver high speed broadband Lowering TCO by converging residential, business and mobile backhaul applications into a single platform Add value to applications that flow through access to increase revenue and enhance QoE Leverage fibre access nodes to optimise content delivery Driving towards the third wave of access evolution: Application Enabled Access All Rights Reserved © Alcatel-Lucent 2010
