Ceragon Networks: Enabling Mobile Broadband in Asia - Creative Approaches

  1. 1. Enabling Mobile Broadband in Asia: Creative Approaches Mobile Backhaul Asia Ran Avital, Vice President of Strategic and Product Marketing March 16, 2011
  2. 2. Agenda• Understanding capacity requirements and expected traffic patterns in the Asian market• Redefining Asian mobile operators expectations from the backhaul segment of their networks• Making Mobile Broadband accessible in Asia with backhaul solutions that meet mobile broadband growth, capacity and coverage requirements• Discovering how to deliver more capacity gain in an HSPA+/LTE environment 2 Proprietary and Confidential

  16. 16. Doubling Ring Capacity Capacity Ceragon’s ABR (Adaptive Bandwidth Recovery)Conventional Protection Ceragon ABR Protection(Based on SNCP 1+1) (Adaptive Bandwidth Recovery) More bandwidth for broadband – Standard Double for free! capacity capacity Double the ring capacity - at no extra cost! 16 Proprietary and Confidential

  18. 18. Asymmetric Bandwidth Capability Capacity • Voice communications is symmetric in nature • 3G/LTE Traffic is Asymmetrical Download Upload Aggregation Symmetric channel within FDD frequency plan Network BTS Aggregation / Hub site 18 Proprietary and Confidential
  19. 19. Asymmetric Bandwidth Capability Capacity • Allocate more capacity to downlink traffic • Within an existing Point-to-Point FDD frequency planning environment Download Upload Aggregation Network Asymmetric channel within FDD frequency plan BTS Aggregation / Hub site 50% More Downlink Capacity - at no extra cost! 19 Proprietary and Confidential
  20. 20. Enhanced Compression over the Backhaul Capacity Evolving traffic mix on HSPA  LTE with IPv6 adds more and more packet headers and overheads• Multi-Layer Header Compression• Payload compression Site A Site B Header Payload Header Payload Compressed Compressed CH CH Payload Payload Compressed Compressed CH CH Payload Payload CH = Compressed Header Up to 150% more capacity - at no extra cost! 20 Proprietary and Confidential
  21. 21. 3G backhaul capacity upgradeCapacity Requirements• 7 ring sites: • 3xE1 for 3G (Ethernet) • 2xE1 for 2G• 7 spur sites: • 3xE1 for 3G (Ethernet) • 1xE1 for 2G• Overall ring supports: • 21xE1 • Ethernet capacity of 84MBps.• Site F is the aggregation site F • 3G is all packet, launched in 2010Upgrade capacity in an • 2G is the bread and butter, all TDMimpossible environment • Backhaul is based mainly on microwave radio • Limited and expensive backhaul spectrum 21 Proprietary and Confidential
