LTE World Summit 2012 Mark harrop masterclass-zone-1_bt-wholesale_wed_keynote.pptx-pres-2

  1. 1. Mobile backhaulingshifts up a gearMay 20121
  2. 2. Just so you know that we know what we are talking about!• We are not a mobile operator, but we are the #1 fixed provider for the UK• We are the market leader for UK mobile backhaul with over 13,000 ethernet connections and over 78,000 via TDM• Our ethernet product supports TDM, ATM & DE with a 99.95% availability And we’re ready for LTE • IP-VPN capable • Timing - 1588 live with SyncE in Q3 12/13 • 6 Classes of Service • Test data proving our network exceeds the LTE RTD & jitter requirements of LTE • Cell access options of 100Mbps & 1Gbps with 10Gbps planned for 13/14, Switch site at 1Gbps & 10Gbps readily available • A cost model that detaches cellsite growth from the core2
  3. 3. But it’s not just about arteries, its about the capillaries3
  4. 4. BT is chairing the backhaul Special Interest Group inthe Small Cell Forum• Small Cell Forum (SCF) has grown to 67 operator and 75 vendor members• Backhaul at the capacity required with right economics is seen as one of the biggest challenges to deployment of small cells.• The Special Interest Group will extend the technical work carried out by NGMN Alliance to : • understand the deployment scenarios for small cells and scale of deployment • appreciate the portfolio of backhaul solution available for each scenario • provide recommendations and identify challenges with each• The target output is an industry white paper providing insight into backhaul options for small cells.4
  5. 5. Small cells will drive the next evolution of backhaul Rural Urban Cost effective coverage in Capacity where it’s needed marginal locations5
  6. 6. A long way from East Garston… • UK Government is providing £150m to deliver 2/3G voice coverage in rural „not- spots‟ • LTE out of scope; sparse population and low device penetration • 80,000 un-served premises • Some main roads also included • Procurement running until November 2012; build complete by March 20156
  7. 7. ‘Macro only’ solutions can only cover 50,000 of the 80,000 target not-spots. A hybrid macro and small cell solution hits 70,000• 15% of required macro sites in • There‟s a good reason why there are no England are in „beauty spots‟…… macro‟s there!7
  8. 8. Beyond fibre: working with EverythingEverywhere, a shared rural LTE trial with 200 live mobile and fixed wireless customers • Trial started in September 2011 • 11.6Mbps down 4.7Mbps up typical performance • External antenna needed in only 20% of cases • BT also trialling other radio solutions; notably TVWSSlide 8 8
  9. 9. So what does that mean for rural backhaul ?• Small cells make economic sense • Microwave will be critical (1000 and environmental sense; shared connections just for the small cells even more-so Government‟s £150m plan)• Leverage fibre deployment, where • BT has over 8,000 Microwave available (more later…) links today • P2MP radio solutions to connect small cell clusters will be required9
  10. 10. Government action is also going to accelerate urban small cellthinking • £150m state aid Urban Broadband Fund • 20 cities will benefit; first ten already named • 3 million will benefit from “wireless broadband” • Initial requirements are fibre for inclusion and economic uplift • Looking for operators to fund wireless uplift • Leverage street furniture • O2 and Westminster example • Macro sites „getting harder to come by‟ • WiFi and 3/4G10
  11. 11. Small cells need to be exactly where the traffic hotspot is, NOT where yourbackhaul is…. Number of small cells per 250m² ‘bucket’ Red 5 Yellow 4 Green 3 Blue 2 Violet 111
  12. 12. We are leveraging BT’s £2.5bn investment in fibre for small cell backhaul • FTTC – available today • FTTP – available today • FTTP On Demand will deliver up to 330Mbps and will pilot from June, available from Spring 2013 • We‟ve requested FTTC/P terminated on „non-served premises‟ – street furniture to you and me! • Traffic from macro cells and small cells to be delivered via the same point. • End to end service guaranteed for both types of cells.12
  13. 13. Comedy and small cells; its all about the timing…. Timing less critical Key to macro offload • Limited handover • Fundamental for handovers requirements • Users moving through • Broader coverage – so “hotspots” lower mobility ? In-Band Timing ?  GPS ?  Macro Timing ?13
  14. 14. Challenges in urban deploymentLocal Authority income Business model risk:from site and revenue • Outdoor WiFishare • Acceptability of shared solutions • Anchor tenants Technology risk: • Pico • Femto „2.0‟ • DAS Social inclusion and economic uplift benefits14
  15. 15. Small cells are coming: the only question is which urban solution (or combination of solutions) and when… Macro radio plan ‘down’ pico deployment DAS outdoor ? ‘femto 2.0’ ubiquitous outdoor deployment15
  16. 16. In conclusion:• Its not just about the last kilometre – the last 100m will be key• Take the backhaul to your small cell, not your small cell to your backhaul; radio• Exploit fibre investment• Focus on the price point 16
