Key considerations

Key Considerations

  • “Solving the distance” equates to achieving a balance of three main things:

    • End user demographics – services, population density, etc.

    • Economics – capital and operational costs

    • Embedded infrastructure, both physical and virtual

The distance issue and its solution varies widely across regions/countries


Backhaul economics demand and supply

Backhaul Economics: Demand and Supply

  • Bandwidth demand in mobile backhaul driven by 3G/4G networks and fixed-mobile convergence; this is the “mobile broadband tsunami”

  • Bandwidth supply is a balance between technology and economics:

    • Fiber connectivity has the most bandwidth potential and less maintenance/power than copper, but can involve considerable capex to deploy

    • Microwave links can be less expensive to deploy, but:

      • Involve line of sight requirements

      • Are subject to environmental conditions such as rain, pollen, solar radiation, etc.


Embedded infrastructure considerations

Embedded Infrastructure Considerations

  • Cell site/BTS location driven by many factors, i.e. coverage requirements, zoning, etc.

  • This location is a major driver of access to backhaul bandwidth

    • Capacity sites may need in-building wiring access or underground right-of-way

    • Coverage sites may have more difficult distances to accommodate

4G Architecture Helps Solve the “Middle Mile” Problem(Sources: Deloitte; Leading technology research vendor)

Processing cost is dropping

faster than bandwidth cost…

…driving distributed architectures

like the IP RAN for LTE


Conclusions

Conclusions

Solving the distance problem is a balance between technical and economic factors

The technical implementation will continue to be a combination of improved bandwidth and optimization of network architecture

Ultimately the main decision criteria is determining how to best serve the end user
