  • 220. With SAE introduction, a phased end-2-end approach must be secured with regards to service scoping for: Technical solution view •EPC/SAE nodes •PBN connecting the SAE nodes with LTE •HSS/HLR for user management •SACC & Charging systems, including Policy & charging control •LTE Radio •Non-3GPP access integration Project view •M-PBN introduction •3GDT introduction •SGSN Pool introduction •SACC implementation •SAE/EPC introduction •Multi Vendor Verification/Integration Business view •2G/3G/CDMA interworking •Fixed/mobile convergence •VoIP •IMS introduction Mustafa Golam, CTO, BDTele(BigData In Telecom) 2/4/2014 •Differentiated QoS 221
  • 221.  Overlay network with 2G/3G handover/connectivity  WLAN / Wimax interworking & fixed/mobile convergence.  Customer provided IP backbone & KPI related acceptance testing.  Ongoing standardization & product development together with projects with high probability for Multi Vendor scenarios  Lack of resources & competence in new technology domains (TSP based HSS, Redback based CPG etc) Mustafa Golam, CTO, BDTele(BigData In Telecom) 2/4/2014 222
  • 222.  We can build on existing competence in the Packet      Core & M-PBN domains We have experience from deploying HSS with IMS We have delivered SAPC with SASN for SACC We have started early with service preparation for LTE & SAE compared to product development timeplan We have learned (the hard way) from introducing e.g. MSS & SACC that careful planning is needed Trial projects an excellent way of getting familiar with the new technology Mustafa Golam, CTO, BDTele(BigData In Telecom) 2/4/2014 223
  • 223.  Packet switched traffic will play a key role in future     Mobile networks Data volumes & customer ISP requirements will increase alot – also new types of traffic Networks are getting more complex what comes to topology, interfaces & features used Correct Service scoping in sales extremely important for project profitability & success Need to start preparing for the great possibilities ahead! Mustafa Golam, CTO, BDTele(BigData In Telecom) 2/4/2014 224
  • 224.  Fewer Nodes  Simpler network architecture  Higher data bitrates over air  Higher data bitrates over TN  Reduced OPEX/CAPEX  LTE offers a smooth evolutionary path from other cellular systems Mustafa Golam, CTO, BDTele(BigData In Telecom) 2/4/2014 225
  • 225.  Delivering of IP Multimedia Services (IMS) leads to  Introducing common service platform based on IMS  HSS together with some other nodes will replace HLR  SGSN/MME connected via well defined interface (S6) to the HSS  IMS services available for GSM/WCDMA/LTE  IMS services belongs to the service layer Mustafa Golam, CTO, BDTele(BigData In Telecom) 2/4/2014 226
  • 226.  EPS Evolved Packet System  EPC Evolved Packet Core  MME Mobility management Entity  SGW Serving Gateway  PDN-GW Packet Data Network Gateway  LTE Long Term Evolution  SAE System Architecture evolution  e-UTRAN Evolved UTRAN Mustafa Golam, CTO, BDTele(BigData In Telecom) 2/4/2014 227
