Mobile operators are adopting LTE at rates even faster than 2G and 3G. As operators race to stay ahead of mobile data demand, LTE is one key to the future.
As every mobile operator knows, one of the best ways to stand out from the competition is to deliver the highest-possible subscriber quality of experience (QoE). Consistent, top-notch QoE translates into reduced customer churn, higher average revenue per user (ARPU) and stronger long-term profitability. Yet delivering that kind of QoE is a tough challenge.
According to Infonetics, the primary reasons to deploy SON (self-organizing networks) are OpEx reduction, improvement in capacity, quality, network performance, and small cell usage. I have been hearing exactly the same message in my discussions with service providers all over the world. The fundamental goal of SON is to minimize the network lifecycle-related cost.
Mobile backhaul architecture should be designed according to the needs of the carried services. One way to do this is for operators to look to the traffic volume distribution among the cell sites. Feedback that we’ve received from operators suggests that, typically, well over 50% of traffic volumes originate from cell sites in urban regions.
