Today, expensive leased lines are the primary method mobile network operators use to backhaul traffic. But with the emergence and increase of 4G LTE service offerings, significantly more bandwidth is required, and at a lower cost. If mobile operators are to reach profitability targets while maintaining high performance, they must improve the efficiency of their networks by dropping the price per bit of bandwidth.

Transport providers have a significant opportunity to generate incremental revenue from increased mobile usage by focusing on the rapidly growing backhaul market. To be successful, their solutions must include:

  • Less expensive and more scalable backhaul options than typical T1 or E1 connections
  • Wholesale services that meet or exceed the performance criteria required by mobile operators for timing, packet loss, delay, jitter, and availability to support 2G, 3G, and 4C cellular protocols
  • Circuit validation and diagnostic capabilities to reduce operating expenditures (OpEx) and powerful Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) mechanisms to maintain their guaranteed Service-Level Agreement (SLA)

The Brocade Mobile Backhaul Services Solution is designed to help service providers migrate their legacy networks to a more cost-effective mobile transport infrastructure. The solution is comprised of a next-generation Carrier Ethernet and Internet Protocol/Multi-Protocol Label Switching (IP/MPLS)-based services portfolio, and a comprehensive end-to-end management solution. Service providers will be able to support the delivery of new multimedia services and applications with advanced Quality of Service (QoS) for reliable and cost-effective service delivery.
