  11. Carrier Ethernet for Mobile Backhaul

  12. Ethernet Mature for Carrier Class Deployment • Service providers • 2007 study of 27 service providers around the globe with $15B avg. revenue • Much progress compared to 2 years ago • 93% are using Ethernet collector rings • Nearly ¾ have Ethernet overlay networks • Over half see savings of 11%-40% using Ethernet • Still want more management, OAM&P Source: Infonetics Research, Service Provider Plans for Metro Optical and Ethernet: NA, EMEA, APAC 2007

  13. Robust Ethernet Service Revenue Worldwide • Healthy growth displaces frame relay, ATM, private line services • Transparent LAN grows faster Source: Infonetics Research, Ethernet and IP/MPLS VPN Services, 2007

  14. Infonetics Observations • $Billions of Ethernet services revenue worldwide, and growing • Many services offered, more planned over Ethernet • Voice, video, data, storage, security, EPL • Service providers moving to all packet networks adding more Ethernet, Ethernet, Ethernet • Carriers are updating their networks to increase capabilities to deliver more services over Ethernet • Business services • Broadband backhaul & service delivery • Mobile backhaul

  15. Worldwide Cell Site Connections Growing • Installed WW connections • 2006 = 2.9 million • 2010 = 4.8 million • Ethernet fastest growing through 2010 • Mobile operators pay incremental charges for 2x to 10x bandwidth • New options solve major problem for operators Source: Infonetics Research Mobile Backhaul Equipment, Installed Base & Services, 2007

  16. Mobile Backhaul Equipment Market Opportunity • Ethernet fastest growing • wireline • microwave Microwave Source: Infonetics Research Mobile Backhaul Equipment, Installed Base & Services, 2007

  17. Mobile Backhaul Has Dynamic Growth … 9/06 7/07 • New mobile applications and bandwidth growth(>100% in 2008 with much more to come) Legacy TDM Movies, music, news, more music, text, web, more content ..

  18. But Big Issues … Mobile applications and bandwidth growth is great, but … • Fierce competition = squeeze on margins • Exploding bandwidth requirements currently constrained by prohibitive costs of legacy networks • Most mobile traffic is broadband/IP centric (TDM is not) • Current TDM services can’t scale to handle growth. • Time/urgency • Cost effective development of Mobile Backhaul is stalled. • Services providers have report no clear path forward Carrier Ethernet removes these barrier to progress

  19. Ethernet Options Solve Backhaul Cost Problem • PDH (T1/E1 etc.) costs climb directly with bandwidth • Ethernet wireline costs grow gently with large bandwidth increases (Eth, DSL, PON, cable) • New IP/Ethernet wireline options to satisfy the the #1 investment driver: operational cost savings Stay on PDH Ethernet Source: Infonetics Research Mobile Backhaul Equipment, Installed Base, and Services, 2007

  20. Key Reasons for Carrier Ethernet (1) • Carrier Ethernet • Economically meets exploding bandwidth requirements currently constrained by the prohibitive costs of legacy networks • Leverages rapid move to Carrier Ethernet for wireline traffic enabling a single integrated wireline and mobile backhaul network • Much easier for service providers to manage and maintain • Most mobile traffic is broadband/IP centric • Carrier Ethernet is optimized for packet data traffic • Overcomes TDM (T1/E1) services scalability • This alone makes Carrier Ethernet the compelling choice • Time/urgency • Carrier Ethernet removes the barrier to timely progress

  21. Key Reasons for Carrier Ethernet (2) • Unlimited scalability and ubiquity • Reliability with full SLA support and full OAM capabilities • Smooth transition from legacy networks • Protects investment and seamlessly bridges from TDM to Ethernet over time

  22. Migration: Circuit Emulation Services (CES) • CES is a major step in industry’s progression toward entirely converged networks • Transports TDM services over Carrier Ethernet services • Converged networks for data, video and voice have been a dream of the industry • Technical challenges to combine TDM and data are not trivial • MEF 8 was designed to meet these challenges, MEF 18 to certify conformance 8,18 • Transition Path • Legacy voice traffic is transported via TDM and CES over Carrier Ethernet • Data growth is handled by Carrier Ethernet • Traffic is merged over time

  23. MEF 18 Certification • MEF 18 provides standard testing of Circuit Emulation Services over Ethernet • 334 ground breaking tests and certification in the suite • Industry first impairment testing brings first test of emulation of clock recovery • MEF certification speeds implementation and enables full inter-operability • MEF 18 has many applications but is keyto Mobile Backhaul migration strategies

  24. MEF Mobile Backhaul Positioning Platform • Robust, proven, carrier- class technologies and services • Mobile Backhaul Operators Survey (30+ SPs) – early guidance to MEF • Mobile Backhaul Implementation Agreement for 2008 • Circuit Emulation (MEF 8) and Certification (MEF 18) • Demonstrated Mobile Backhaul Interoperability • Education: White papers, presentations, case studies

  25. Mobile Backhaul Interoperability Showcase • Live mobile application demonstration • End-to-end services • Resiliency • End-to-end CE Service OAM • Quality of Service support • Performance monitoring • Bandwidth profiles • Circuit Emulation Services • And more…..
